Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic exercises include an active, active-assisted, and passive approach. Our therapist believes that ‘Movement is medicine’ and the right movement performed at the right time acts as a medicine to restore your functions and be pain-free.    

 Exercise prescriptions are designed to meet the specific need of a patient after a detailed subjective history and objective physical therapy evaluation. Our therapist provides a tailored exercise program for each of our patients targeting their mobility, strength, endurance, and stability deficits.

Posture Assestment

What is posture? Posture is defined as “the position or attitude of the body or body parts that require minimum muscle energy to maintain the mechanically efficient function of the joint with musculoskeletal balance.”

Good posture is the body alignment that prevents injury throughout a lifetime. You must be performing tons of activities in your daily life like reaching, squatting, sitting, standing, walking, bending, etc. which requires good posture. Deviation from good posture will lead to injuries and pain. Pretty straightforward, isn’t it?

Our Certified posture therapist will perform static and dynamic posture assessments with respect to the line of gravity and biomechanics.  You will be given feed back and educated about the normal posture, providing feedback, and designing therapeutic exercises to correct the muscle imbalance.  Your progress for the designed exercises will be grade with a specific NPI grading system The Therapist will also discuss the required changes in your workstation to correct the ergonomics.

Sports Therapy

Our Rehab team helps the young athletes in our community to heal faster from sports injuries, advice on injury prevention and promote safe return to sports.  The Physical Therapist will perform posture, gait and running analysis on the athletes as appropriate. 
Running injuries are very common in athletes and our therapist will help you identify the cause(s) of injury which could be training errors, faulty biomechanics linked with running, extrinsic factors like your footwear, and/or musculoskeletal impairments.
