Exercise Rehabilitation

Exercise is absolutely essential for restoration and prevention of permanent damage of neuromusculoskeletal injuries. However, the exercise rehabilitation program needs to be very specific to the injury and any other health problems being experienced, with precise attention to stretching, strengthening, cardiovascular, warm-up and cool-down procedures, frequency, timing, breathing, balance, consistency and form. Dr. Hartje utilizes both in-office rehabilitative equipment and in-home instruction programs to optimally restore function for better long-term results. Dr. Hartje will also work in collaboration with your physical and/or occupational therapist, if desired, for this component of your comprehensive care plan.
