Strength training plays a vital role in a rehabilitation plan. During recovery, strength training helps build muscle around previously damaged joints. The training relieves pain and speeds healing. But strength training is also a key ingredient in injury and Fall Prevention. It is a therapeutic method that holds many places in a physical therapist’s toolbox.
There are many reasons to visit The Therapy Network for strength training and rehabilitation.
Did you know that over 800,000 Americans are hospitalized each year due to a fall in their home?
There is a preventative solution, and that is strength training. The solution strengthens your bones and helps you build a solid central core of muscles. It promotes mobility and improves balance.
Strength training is a cornerstone of every Fall Prevention program.
A top benefit of strength training is that it can be performed anywhere. Once your Therapy Network therapist teaches you the fundamentals of strength training, you can include the exercises into your daily routine.
Many of the exercises need either no equipment or minimal supplies. Often, you can use items that are already found in your home. Or with the “body weight” method, you can complete your exercises at any location…even on vacation.
During your first visit to the Therapy Network your specialized therapist will review your complete medical history and your diagnosed condition. They will create a customized therapy plan that may include strength training to fit your needs.
