Functional Exercises can be a very important aspect of the rehabilitation process. Many injuries can cause muscles and ligaments to become weak or tight which can lead to muscular imbalances and spinal misalignments, or overall structural instability. Some musculoskeletal disorders originate from muscular or structural imbalances that have developed over time, either from poor posture or repetitive movements. Because of this, a thorough examination by your doctor will help to determine a specific exercise prescription with the goal of correcting imbalances and restoring function. Determining what muscle groups are being effected is vital for your doctor to know so that he can help you to regain your health and function. We have an exercise specialist who works one on one with our patients so that they receive the proper instruction and monitoring. She will teach you the exercises you need for your specific condition, and she will work with you until you are comfortable enough to do the exercises at home. With a regular strength and flexibility program, you will have the tools you need to reduce the risk of developing a musculoskeletal disorder in the future.
