Exercise Therapy

Exercise prescription involves educating the patient on the use of specific motions in the body or its parts in order to relieve symptoms and improve function. Specific stretching, strengthening, and stabilization exercises are a critical part of the rehabilitation process for most musculoskeletal injuries. Continued exercise is an important component of injury prevention and improvement of overall physical, psychological, and mental health.


Targeting specific points along meridian pathways defined by the ancient Chinese, this modality of treatment uses needles, lasers, or TENS to stimulated areas, which influence pain and tissue healing in the body.
