Try them out and see for yourself!

Step 3 - Empower Your Patients with Exercises!

As you no doubt recognize, appropriate exercises are a fundamental component of any type of injury recovery process.

Once you have removed the restrictive adhesions between soft tissues, and restored function and movement to the affected areas, it becomes critical that the patient perform appropriate exercises to rehabilitate affected area.

Appropriate exercises serve several functions…

  • one…to increase strength beyond the patient's pre injury status,
  • two…to increase flexibility ,
  • three…to restore balance and symmetry to the injured area!

As practitioners, it is always our goal to empower our patients by giving them the tools they need to stay healthy and injury free. Exercises are a critical component in achieving this goal.

By giving patients the means they need to stay injury free, you convey that your primary goal is the complete resolution of their condition , and thereby increase the degree of trust they place in you!

Finding the Right Exercises

But appropriate, focused, and specific exercises are often hard to find, and in a busy practice, often difficult to demonstrate!

The book - Release Your Pain - provides many appropriate, easy-to-apply exercises for the most common types of soft-tissue injuries that are treated with ART. The accompanying clear photographs, and detailed step-by-step procedures, make these exercises easy for your patients to follow and use.

Each of these exercises were carefully designed and/or chosen by Dr. Abelson, working in conjunction with a excellent sports Kinesiologist - James Fitzgerald. Each exercise addresses the specific muscle groups that are typically stressed and weakened by RSI activities. You will find focused exercises for:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Elbow injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles Tendon

Save your valuable time - use these exercises - and encourage your patients to read and follow the instructions included in each chapter. As they read these sections (and hopefully other parts of the book), they learn, they understand, and they trust, both you, and your technique!

Use these exercises will help to convey that your primary goal is the complete resolution of the patient's condition. This conviction will build a considerable degree of trust between you and your patient, and result in many future referrals!

Wishing you all the best in your practice!
