Often, lack of mobility is not the only answer to your problem. On the flip side, lack of stability or strength alone is not the only answer. Every patient that comes into our clinic has multiple factors leading to his or her pain. Our job as Doctors of Physical Therapy is to prioritize what is causing your pain. That means we place an emphasis on strength or mobility, but we do not ignore other factors contributing to your pain. Sometimes our bodies just crave movement, and we think that stretching is the answer because it feels good in the short term, but the answer is that we actually need more stability or strength. So how are you to know which is right for you? By letting us perform a thorough evaluation at your first visit.
