In most cases, non-surgical treatment options are the solution to ending your pain and bringing you back to a full and healthy life. Dr. Herman will guide you through your best options for treatment, and if surgery or another form of care may be needed, he will refer you to the appropriate provider.
Rehabilitation exercises are a necessary component to bouncing back from an injury and then reducing the risk for recurrent injury and pain. The goal of rehabilitation exercises is to decrease pain and restore movement by improving strength, endurance, power, flexibility, stability, and balance.
Initially, the focus is on selecting exercises that will allow the damaged tissue to heal. From there, progressive loads and functional exercises and drills are incorporated to ensure the body is ready to handle the stresses of everyday life and sport. Continuing to perform these exercises once healthy is often an important component to remaining healthy.
