Therapeutic exercise and Neuromuscular Re-education seeks to accomplish the following goals:

  • Enable ambulation
  • Release contracted muscles, tendons, and fascia
  • Mobilize joints
  • Improve circulation
  • Improve respiratory capacity
  • Improve coordination
  • Reduce rigidity
  • Improve balance
  • Promote relaxation
  • Therapeutic Exercises Improve muscle strength and, if possible, achieve and maintain maximal voluntary contractile force (MVC)
  • Therapeutic Exercises Improve exercise performance and functional capacity (endurance)

Use of Ice Therapy: Use Ice Therapeutic Exercises after muscle injury to reduce swelling and muscle relaxation.

Use of Heat therapy : The use of heat therapy causes the injured muscles to relax by opening the capillaries and improving circulation to the area.
