Assessing pain and strength deficiencies, analyzing movement patterns, applying techniques to immediately alleviate pain while improving the function of a human being and optimizing day to day performance with what is important to the client is what physical therapy should be. Whether it be an athlete, 77 year old skier, or the average individual looking to lose weight and avoid pain.
Commonly what is seen and experienced in PT is why so many people choose not to do it…3-4 people per therapist at the same time, generic programming, lack of creativity based on a client’s individual needs…this is why many people say that PT just “didn’t work for me”.
What separates Executive PT from the rest is our process for progressing people into strength training. We have found this is THE critical piece for crafting a long term solution for clients and their physical issues.
We don’t spend our time and focus on using light neoprene dumbbells, bodyweight only exercise, or theraband activities. The magic is in the progression of loading the body with strength training.
