At The Manual Touch PT we use a functional rehab (therapeutic exercise) approach, viewing patients as a whole person in order to determine the root biomechanical cause to a person’s symptoms. Functional rehab consists of an individualized exercise program that combines strengthening with proprioceptive stimulation (ability to know where you are in space) to promote improved mobility and stability.
The body moves in 3 planes of motion at any given time. If a particular plane of motion is lacking in a region of the body, this will then limit other regions from moving optimally. This type of rehab approach is based on the principles of Applied Functional Science that were developed by Gary Gray, PT, founder of the Gray Institute. See Grayinstitute.com
