These strengthening exercises are designed to isolate and strengthen targeted areas. By isolation, the intrinsic muscle groups, smaller muscle attachments and specific joint and muscle discrepancies can be treated and activated effectively.
This work can only be successful with a program of active isolated stretching (AIS) prior to commencing in a strengthening program with your therapist.
Active isolated strengthening is also a manual therapeutic modality, and can only be done with the assistance of a specialist stretch therapist. The therapist will exactly know your condition and your capabilities, and trying to do this on your own will put your ligaments and joints at risk.
