Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic exercises are specific exercises, movements, or stretches meant to correct problems of the neuro-muskulo-skeletal systems.

The focus of therapeutic exercises is on regaining flexibility, strength,endurance and proprioceptive control to promote natural pain-free movement.  All of our therapists have advanced training in the diagnosis of deficits in movement patterns and how to treat these specific deficits with corresponding exercises.  Some patients tend to be apprehensive when hearing the word exercise, which is understandable because they are typically in pain.  We use movement to relieve pain first and then build stability or mobility after our patients pain has been relieved.

What our patients are saying...

My experiences with Great Lakes Physical Therapy have been positive in every way.  All of the staff are friendly, considerate and caring to everyone who comes in the door. Professional staff provide excellent, personalized care in a pleasant, congenial atmosphere.  I highly recommend this facility to anyone in need of physical therapy.
