Flexible Home Exercise Program Tips and Suggestions

Discover the flexibility secret that your home health physical therapist may not be telling you about your home exercise program routine. The pressure's off! Breathe easy and pace yourself.

Total Knee and Hip Replacement exercises can look quite simple prior to your total joint replacement surgery. Whether you are pre or post surgery, I've given you the best in-the-field experience about three basic exercises. (With more to come in the next newsletter!) Just pretend I'm in your home working personally with you!

Quad Sets - Take Quantum Leaps!

Quad Sets are critical after joint replacement surgery. Learn how to get the most out of this simple knee strengthening exercise. Did you know you can modify this exercise to fit your ability and pain tolerance?

Glute Sets - Backdoor Strength is Crucial!

Glute sets - your back door strength can make a significant difference in your total knee or total hip replacement success. Rehab protocols emphasize the muscles on the front side of the body, sometimes to the exclusion of the gluteus maximus and back side stabilizers...a crucial mistake.

Heel Slides - 5 in 1 Super Exercise!

Heel slides - hip flexion, knee flexion - what are you trying to accomplish? Hip movement, knee movement, ankle stability and strength or all of the above! 5+ ways to do a simple heel slide here!

Straight Leg Raises

Straight leg raises after a total knee or total hip replacement can seem impossible. Know when to start them, when to wait and how to progress. Find out why it's important to be sure you are ready for this exercise!

Is Myofascial Release The Missing Link?

Myofascial Release Therapy is the missing link that holds the key to resolved pain, improved function and ability and increased energy. Truly a well hidden secret, this therapy option will breath hope and life and pain relief into the most disparaging soul.

Benefits of Private Home Health Physical Therapy

In home physical therapy is growing rapidly with less therapists to go around. This leads to burn out and poor quality care. Its pay structure is also lending to 10-15 minute visits by therapists who get paid per visit. The patient looses in the end - make sure that's not you!
