Our Approach to Physical Therapy
Orthopedic therapy consists of workout routines, stretching tools, and equipment to build strength and movement. The two main workouts are closed-chain or proprioceptive.
- Closed-chain workouts assist in building muscular balance and strength.
- Proprioceptive workouts focus on muscle strength, control, agility & position awareness.
Patients come in and use our workout equipment, which includes stationary bicycles, weightlifting machines, stretching equipment, and treadmills. Each of these tools assist in rebuilding a normal, functioning body. Patients are taught how to manage their own workout routines in addition to working with a therapist.
