Picking up from where physicians drop off.
Often, physical therapy is recommended after an injury or surgery. After completing the prescribed therapy treatments, the patient is given a list of exercises to continue doing and are left to fend for themselves in their gym or at home. Mark found that most people stop doing their exercises all together or just do the ones they like or can remember. In order to maintain continuity, Mark combines those exercises with appropriate stretching, balance work and strength training, resulting in a higher quality of life and preservation of the confidence and self-esteem that comes from maintaining independence and feeling great!
