Physical Therapy Exercises

Physical Therapy Exercise Video Library

Exercising based on sound orthopedic principles can be difficult but is critical to maximizing your results and staying safe. This video library below was created to help c.h. Physical Therapy patients learn the right way to do key physical therapy exercises. It’s not a complete list of all the exercises we teach, but it’s a great way to refresh your memory at home.

Please remember not to attempt any exercise at home without training from our Portland area physical therapists. These exercises each have a specific purpose and are part of a larger plan that is customized for you. The only way to get the true benefit is to work with us directly.

c.h. Physical Therapy is the only physical therapy clinic that offers standardized, peer-reviewed, evidence-based exercise prescription training programs. The programs were designed over 25 years based on evidence from countless patients.

Trunk and Core Exercises

Having coordinated “core” muscles can have a huge effect on your overall health, as they form a platform for moving your arms and legs. Developing your core coordination is often essential to relieving back pain and other health issues.


Daily stretching is critical for your health, especially if you have osteoarthritis and/or chronic pain. When you stop stretching, you lose flexibility and this can lead to painful joints, slower movements and other problems.


In addition to physical therapy exercises, you’ll want to check out these videos with other tips, nutrition guidance, patient testimonials and more.
