To best help a patient in achieving a higher level of function, the therapist may use stretching, strengthening, balance training, manual therapy techniques and/or other therapeutic modalities. Patient and caregiver education is a cornerstone of physical therapy.
Of course, everyone is unique. For that reason, our physical therapists always tailor home exercise programs that meet the individual needs of every patient.
As with most therapies, compliance with a home exercise program along with the skilled care of a trained physical therapist will give each patient the best opportunity to have the highest possible outcome.
