What are Strengthening Exercises?

Strengthening exercises are exercises which are designed to increase the strength of specific or groups of muscles. Strengthening exercises overload the muscle until the point of muscle fatigue. This force and overload of a muscle encourages the growth, increasing the strength. Weak muscles can increase the risk of injury to the surrounding joints and soft tissues.

Strengthening exercises will include a variety of exercises designed to target specific groups or individual muscles. These exercises will begin easier and progress as strength is developed. Some of the exercises may involve the following:

DOING THE EXERCISES WITH ME MADE IT MORE FUN!

I really liked physical therapy and all the staff. Some things I had trouble with before I started PT are running, playing soccer, and moving my ankle. It hurts a lot doing a bunch of stuff. I really like Anthony helping me set up my exercises for me and doing them with me it made them more fun.

I am back to 100%!

When I came into ProPT in February 2020, I had pain in both shoulders and was facing surgery for 2 torn rotator cuffs. I had lots of pain that impacted my quality of life. I had lost range of motion and I felt as though I had no strength for almost 2 years. I had given up the sports I love; tennis. Now, after coming and being treated for 4 months, and being good about doing my exercises, I am back to 100%. I have played tennis twice, I sleep without pain, and now I am moving with no pain at all. Thank you to all who treated me- You gave me my life back!”
