Contractile and noncontractile tissues are both susceptible to tightening when injured or exposed to a neurological disease process that causes weakening and/or spasticity. Prevention, through careful and regular movement and stretching, is key to maintaining flexibility. However, consideration must be taken regarding restrictions to mobility in post-operative or post-traumatic healing.
Along with active and passive stretching to increase flexibility, therapeutic exercise may include education about body mechanics, gait and locomotion training, neuromuscular re-education, developmental activities and relaxation
The ability to maintain one’s center of gravity and execute complex patterns of movement with the right timing and sequencing is essential to motor function.
Coordination and balance are usually trained using motor learning principles, important components of a therapeutic exercise program designed to increase function. Tools such as a wobble board or balance balls will be utilized to restore or increase your balance and coordination.
Strengthening the muscles around the spine also prevents future injuries from occurring.
Endurance increases the ability to perform activities over a prolonged period. When muscular endurance is developed, a muscle can generate and sustain a larger number of contractions. Muscles that maintain proper posture and alignment are fatigued easy when unconditioned.
Strengthening injured muscles is the final phase of rehabilitation. Strength returns to muscles once the heeling phase is fully underway. We will design a series of exercises that will rebuild the strength in your injured muscles and return you to the activities you love to do.
