Teaming Up for Optimal Health
ACTIVE CARE (Corrective/Restorative Care)
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury.
PHASE 1: In Phase I you will be introduced to active care exercises. You will perform varying stretches to tight/stiff muscles and joints to increase flexibility of shortened muscles and soft tissues in the injured area(s). Proprioception training (joint position sense) will be emphasized, with the intent to start correcting postural distortions that are attributing to your symptoms. Gentle strengthening exercises will also be initiated to weakened muscles.
PHASE 2: Phase II consists primarily of dynamic therapeutic exercises and activities. You will perform strength and endurance activities to recondition key spinal/joint stabilizers while insisting upon, proper control and coordination. A great portion of your exercises will incorporate the use of the fitness ball, foam mat, and rocker boards. There will be great emphasis on muscle awakening and control, core stability, strength, balance and coordination.
PHASE 3: This final phase is all about strength, endurance and power. Residual muscle weaknesses, imbalances, abnormal movements and poor postural habits will be corrected. Weights training, resistance band, and advanced balance exercises using the Bosu Ball will be incorporated to reach your goal of optimal health.
