EXERCISE PRESCRIPTION

Depending on your condition there will be some movements or activities that you may have to avoid for a certain period of time.  But it doesn’t end there.  It’s not only our job to let you know what you can’t do, but more importantly, what you can do.  This all starts with an evaluation of how well you do or do not move.  Then we will assist you in making your strengths stable and your weaknesses stronger. This often times requires good physical therapy which will always be specific to you.
