What Is Therapeutic Exercise?

How Therapeutic Exercise Can Help?

At Marlboro Physical Therapy, we use a focused approach to therapeutic exercises where one size does not fit all.  For example, an exercise for low back pain in one patient, may not be the correct exercise for a patient who appears to have the same low back pain.  For this reason, our goal for therapeutic exercise is to assess each individual patient and create personalized therapeutic exercise programs that are geared towards their problems. Once a patient can understand his or her problem, then he or she can tolerate physical activity better by understanding triggers to the pain.  Time and time again, patient have been shown to improve in pain, dysfunction, and disability if they can remain active and moving.  Our goal is to incorporate physical activity into our patient’s daily lives which helps them function more effectively in their own environment.
