Physical therapy is dedicated to guiding recovery and providing the skills you’ll need to return to healthy activity. Those who’ve suffered an injury or conditions involving bones, joints, and muscles will find the road to recovery begins with PT.
Our goal is to return patients to the highest possible level of function in the shortest time while keeping safety a priority. OFC personnel work in close communication with our surgeons and referring physicians to bring you back to health at the right pace. Physical therapy is teamwork, and you’re the key player.
One important strategy for recovery and rehabilitation after injury or surgery is strength training. It is an essential part of physical activity with numerous benefits, including:
- Improved muscle strength and endurance
- Increased joint stability and mobility
- Reduced risk of injury
- Improved posture and functional ability for daily activities
Being able to perform therapeutic exercises safely and effectively is crucial. To help establish proper form, B. Jon Ellingworth, PT, one of our physical therapists, put together comprehensive videos that demonstrate 10 strength training exercises.
