Therapeutic Exercise Prescription
We call this an exercise “prescription” because it is just as important as taking pills. Many would argue that exercise is actually more effective than pills for many orthopaedic conditions. Just like a pill, if you take the wrong one or don’t take it as prescribed you may not feel the benefit or may even feel worse.
During your evaluation, your therapist will identify key areas to address with exercises.Your exercise prescription may include stretching, strengthening, endurance, and/or repeated movement. You may be surprised to find that your exercises may include areas that you weren’t even aware may be influencing or perpetuating your condition. Please let your therapist know if you have already begun an exercise program for your condition during your initial evaluation.
