Physical Therapy Exercises

To help you learn exercises, we provide a video library demonstrating how to perform them correctly. While this library is not a complete list of all exercises we teach, it does include many of the primary exercises you would use.

The manner in which you perform exercises is critical to maximize benefit and minimize injury risk. We often hear from patients that they’ve tried physical therapy before but haven’t seen much benefit, becoming bored during the process. When patients are shown how to perform exercises correctly, closely monitored during execution and inspired with motivational cueing, results can be dramatic.

To minimize injury risk, please do not attempt any exercise without training from our physical therapists. Exercises have specific purpose and yield benefits when performed in conjunction with a complete program that is customized to each patient. The only way to take advantage of this is through an initial evaluation.
