Therapeutic exercises are specific exercises designed to help you with your specific injury or condition. These exercises will help you to retain the gains that you achieve during your treatment session, strengthen weakened muscles and retrain muscles that may have been functioning incorrectly.

Cardiovascular Training

Exercises that stimulate the heart to beat faster and respiration to increase are effect at training the cardiovascular system.



Plyometrics is a form of exercise training that involves jumping and skipping type activities. Plyometrics helps to improve a persons jumping ability, initial acceleration and ability to change direction quickly.

Resistance Training

Resistance training, also known as strength training and weight training, refers to the use of an external resistance such as dumbbells to provide resistance through a range of motion. This resistance stimulates the muscles and joints to adapt and get stronger. Resistance training plays an important role in physical therapy because it helps to restore strength and function to muscles that have become weak because of lack of use or injury.

Core Stabilization

Every time we move, we depend on some muscles to hold us steady, and other muscles to actually move us. Core stabilization is the general term for how the muscles of your trunk keep your spine and body stable. This helps you stay balanced when you move. If your core muscles are strong and they contract when they should.

Core stability benefits everyone, from older people to top professional athletes. Exercises for core stabilization should be part of every conditioning program, along with flexibility, strength, and aerobic training.
