Our Physical Therapy Strengthening Exercises
Strengthening plays a significant role in your physical therapy treatment and rehabilitation process and can speed up your recovery period. Many might not know this, but when you’re injured or experiencing pain, it is not a good idea to stop activity abruptly. It is good to rest and take it easy, but you don’t want to stiffen or weaken your joint or muscle – stretching can help! After you visit a Physical Therapist and you are given a set of at-home stretches to complete, it is very important to be compliant with them to continue building strength and maintaining muscle and joint health. Listen here as Dominic Turner, P.T. explains the various types of isometric, progressive resistance and core strengthening exercises Williams Integracare physical therapists use.
