Strength training in the Minneapolis Clinic of Neurology’s Physical Therapy setting is geared toward each person’s individual diagnosis and needs. Exercise programs focus on core and extremity strengthening, and may include use of equipment, such as elastic tubing, free weights, exercise balls and exercise machines. A physical therapist designs an exercise program specific to each patient, and carefully modifies and progresses exercises as appropriate.
Physical therapists are the logical practitioners to assume the responsibility for manual therapy treatments. They work closely with physicians who are capable of ruling out serious pathology. Techniques involved have indications, contraindications and precautions, which your physical therapist will assess in collaboration with your physician, past medical history and extensive physical therapy evaluation.
After an extensive evaluation of your condition, your physical therapist will decide what types of therapeutic treatments are appropriate for you. Some types of manual therapy that may be used, depending on your diagnosis, are traction, myofascial release, joint mobilization and neural flossing.
