Commonly Utilized Fitness Tools: As recommended by your neighborhood Physical Therapist

Commonly Utilized Fitness Tools: As recommended by your neighborhood Physical Therapist

We take great pride in the work we do with our hands in physical therapy. But what about when you’re at home, on the road, at work, or sippin’ a pina colada on vacation? We like to empower our patients to help them take control of their own lives. Part of this is to help our patients remain committed to their program, and another part of it is to make sure the manual therapy we perform carries over. I always tell my patients, “There are 168 hours in the week. You see me for 2 hours per week. What are you doing with the other 166 hours?” Flexibility, strength, and motor control reeducation need to be a part of any compliant patient’s regular schedule. Below are some of our favorite “go to” items, and how much they will cost you (believe us, they are worth the investment):
