PILATES

Pilates is a system of exercises that focuses on posture, core strengthening, stretching, breathing and body mechanics. Pilates exercises were created by Joseph Pilates after WWI and has been integrated into rehabilitation since the 1920s.  The therapist can integrate mat Pilates exercises into the physical therapy, but if the patient has any Pilates equipment at home, such as a Reformer or Trapeze table, the therapist can also train the patient on their apparatus at home.

TRX

TRX is a full-body strength workout that utilizes a person’s own body weight by using Suspension Straps or a Rip Stick. Although created by a Navy Seal to train people who are highly fit, many exercises can be appropriate for people who are working at the most basic level, even after surgery. TRX is utilized to develop core strength, rotational power, flexibility and endurance. The TRX suspension straps can be provided by the home therapist and exercises can be integrated into the rehabilitation.  The TRX straps can hook over a closed door without causing damage to the door or frame.

MANUAL THERAPY

Manual therapy is a physical therapy term describing hands-on treatment by a therapist and can include passive range of motion (stretching), joint mobilization and myofascial release. After surgery, passive stretching is one of the most important treatments to help a patient regain ROM.
