Exercise Protocols

Most common pain / disfunction syndromes occur as a result of a combination of poor posture habit and imbalanced muscle groups.  The following exercise protocols will address the most important aspects of these imbalances.  In some instances they will involve stretching and in some instances they will involve strengthening.

These exercises are the ones that I give out to patients who I have evaluated.  They are offered as a courtesy to my patients who may have lost the exercise sheets or to other qualified licensed therapists to use and distribute as they see fit.

If you choose to review and possibly try them, please be aware that you do so at your own risk as I have not evaluated you.
