Rehabilitation is a constellation of physical methods and procedures that primarily involves various forms of exercise to improve function after an illness or injury. Strength exercises are often a necessary step to permanently fix a problem. Muscle weakness is often a catalyst to injury. This weakness must be corrected or the injury will return.

Balance is the ability of a person to maintain equilibrium and the body in an upright position while stationary or moving.  Balance deficits may occur due to trauma, disease, injury and aging.

With specific exercise programs and devices, it is possible to retrain the body’s ability to balance and coordinate its motion patterns. Activities range from rising from a chair to participating in complex activities involved in competitive sports.
