Therapeutic exercise is a vital complement to our manual therapy techniques to obtain a good result. It is important to understand that it is not lack of strength that causes pain; it is an improper functioning musculoskeletal system. To try to correct this dysfunction with conditioning or generic exercises often makes the problem worse. Rehabilitation exercise is highly specific and very low intensity. The muscle system must first function correctly with rehabilitation; then strengthen with conditioning exercise. The initial exercises are used to enhance the correction made with the manual therapy techniques. Once the correction holds with rehabilitation, strengthening exercises are prescribed. We have literally hundreds of exercises that can be given for your specific condition. Once learned, these exercises can be performed on a self-directed basis to avoid reoccurrence.
