Exercises to strengthen your core and supportive muscles for injury recuperation as well as prevention.

Physical therapy utilizes therapeutic exercise in a very special way to restore function and prevent injury. In order to restore clients to full function, we not only strengthen the muscles necessary for moving a joint, but we also strengthen the muscles, ligaments, and tendons that support and stabilize the joint. An example of this is how a therapist strengthens the rotator cuff muscles of the shoulder in order to keep the shoulder from dislocating or pinching during throwing movements. The rotator cuff muscles are synergists which work together with the deltoids (primary movers) to keep the shoulder joint in the proper alignment.
