Functional strength training has many layers of benefits and ultimately reduces the likelihood of injury. Understanding functional strengthening is to think of it as activities rather than exercises.

Strength training should complement physical therapy to reinstate the body’s flexibility, strength, and stability. At Gardena Physical Therapy, we help create programs that complement your physical therapy sessions, which are called post-physical therapy exercises. For patients still in pain or recuperating from injuries, these may seem burdensome. The result, however, justifies the additional load in terms of physical and mental exertion.
