Therapeutic Excersice

Balance Physical Therapy

Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic exercise service is a prescribed dosage of a particular exercise or group of exercises aimed at accomplishing a very specific goal.

After a thorough patient evaluation, including a review of a patient’s medical history, any films that may be on file such as x-rays, CT scans, MRIs, arthrograms, etc., a complete and thorough subjective history history taking with the patient in the clinic and a biomechanical examination of the patient’s body, we will devise a carefully prescribed therapeutic exercise regimen to address that patient’s impairments.

Therapeutic exercise from a physical therapist’s perspective, doesn’t turn somebody into the Incredible Hulk. Perhaps for an 86-year-old female with osteoporosis, she needs to stand up from a chair without assistance. Therapeutic exercise can only be applied, and should only be applied after a very thorough subjective history taking, objective examination, and setting specific goals together with the patient.

Balance Physical Therapy Testimonials

  • "John is the greatest! Takes time to thoroughly explain everything, seems to really care about his patients and their well-being. Definitely goes out of his way to accommodate his patients. Thank you!"

  • "My therapist was the greatest! She was friendly, warm and helpful. All of the staff was very great as well. The whole experience was fantastic and the atmosphere was always positive, encouraging and energetic. Thank you all so much for your help and encouragement. My visits were one of a kind."

  • "I will request your facility again if I'm ever in need of physical therapy services in the future. I will also recommend friends and family members. Good location, nice facility, A+!"

  • Competently competent! I have been to several PTs for my issue. None took the time to really evaluate and come up with ideas that actually made a difference. We are still working the issue, but I have felt so cared for. John takes an interest to make sure that the patient is getting the right care they need. Happy!! 5/5 stars Thursday, 06 October 2016 18:05:23
