Therapeutic exercise is a key component to any and all rehabilitation and is commonly referred to as physical therapy. At The ExerScience Center, we use these exercises to help aid in the recovery process and to maintain the state of well-being. The goal is to achieve the optimal level of physical fitness by the end of the treatment plan.

Neubie

by NeuFit

NEUBIE is NeuFit’s patented electrical stimulation device. It is an acronym for “NEURO-BIO-ELECTRIC STIMULATOR,” and is FDA-cleared.* When the NEUBIE is combined with NeuFit protocols, the system provides for new methods of Neuromuscular Re-education.

 it has unique effects on the body's tissues to promote healing; and it has unique effects on the nervous system that, when combined with the NeuFit System, allows practitioners to provide a meaningful dose of neuromuscular re-education. 

IASTM

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation (IASTM) is a new range of tool which enables clinicians to efficiently locate and treat individuals diagnosed with soft tissue dysfunction. 

The technique itself is used to treat musculoskeletal conditions through the skin.  IASTM is a procedure that is rapidly growing in popularity due to its effectiveness and efficiency while remaining non-invasive, with its own indications and limitations.

Neuromuscular Reeducation

Neuromuscular reeducation represents a series of therapeutic techniques to restore the normal function of nerves and muscles to include movement, balance, coordination, decreased kinesthetic sense, and impaired proprioception.

Joint Mobilization

Joint mobilization is a manual therapy intervention, a type of passive movement of a skeletal joint.  It is usually aimed at a 'target' synovial joint with the aim of achieving a therapeutic effect.  When applied to the spine, it is known as spinal mobilization.

Gait Training

After sustaining an injury, especially to the spinal cord or brain, the process of re-learning how to walk can be difficult and should be done under the supervision of a physical therapist knowledgeable in ways to use all your senses to maintain your balance and equilibrium while using your energy efficiently to increase your standing and walking tolerance.

Gait training is training your ability to stand and walk through different neuromuscular systems: balance, coordination, activation of specific muscles, timing and pattern of walk.

Soft Tissue Mobilization

Soft tissue mobilization is a form of manual physical therapy where your licensed physical therapist uses hands-on techniques on your muscles, ligaments and fascia with the goal of breaking adhesions and optimizing your muscle function.

PNF Stretching

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) stretching is currently the fastest and most effective way known to increase static-passive flexibility and increasing range of motion. 

 

PNF is an advanced form of flexibility training, which involves both the stretching and contracting of the muscle group being targeted which also improves muscular strength.
