Selecting meaningful exercises that relate to patient’s function to improve proprioception. Exercises should also fit patient’s physical outcomes when planning a rehabilitation program. Adaptive and progressively challenging exercises allow tissue stress to occur in accordance with the above mentioned principles.
For task learning to be carried out successfully, it should be built on several pillars: flexibility, stability, work capacity (muscle endurance) and strength. The elements of strength stretch beyond the ability to deliver high force against relatively low repetition to include generating force rapidly (acceleration), force absorption and eccentric force generation.
Manual therapy, or manipulative therapy, is a massage and manipulation therapy treatment used to release tight muscles and improve function and
mobility. It is used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions.
Techniques commonly used by physiotherapists, IMS (intra-muscular stimulation) and dry needling are used to treat pain and injuries. By inserting
needles into tight muscles, tension can be released, allowing for pain to diminish and mobility to return.
