How Will I Benefit From therapeutic Exercise in Fort Myers, Cape Coral & Estero, FL?

Many people believe that if they are in pain, all they need to do is lie down and rest. It is natural to avoid most forms of physical activity after an injury. However, this will cause your muscles to weaken and tighten, causing pain and halting the healing process.

The good news is that therapeutic exercise is available at our Fort MyersCape Coral & Estero, FL physical therapy clinics! Our physical therapists are movement specialists who can assist you in improving your strength, range of motion, and overall body function. The goal of Back In Motion Physical Therapy & Performance is to help you live a pain-free life with increased power and endurance.

Allow us to design a personalized recovery plan for you. Your treatment plan will include specialized therapies to alleviate pain, improve problematic areas, accelerate recovery, and achieve peak levels of function.

Common Therapeutic Exercise Plans

Even if you’re not aware of it, your posture affects your muscle power, coordination, and risk of injury. Long periods of sitting at a desk, leaning over keyboards, low muscle tone, and poor posture patterns can all result in pain or injury. Posture exercises help to relieve aches and pains by improving posture, which makes daily tasks easier and more enjoyable.

These exercises are intended to improve your joint and soft tissue range of motion. Active, passive, or assisted stretching can be used to accomplish this. These are designed to help your joints move more freely and painlessly.

While it is important to exercise the body’s muscles, joints, and soft tissues, it is also important to help them relax and release. Though sleeping in pain is difficult, it can assist your body in starting the healing process.

Heat, cold, electrical stimulation, massage, and trigger point therapy are all pain-relieving therapies. These treatments can help with recovery, sleep, and blood pressure control. They can also keep you going to the gym to get some exercise!

Improving endurance and muscle strength is essential for good balance and stability, as well as bone and joint health. At our clinic, resistance and endurance exercises improve muscle strength while decreasing the risk of injury.

Every time you get up, walk, rest, brush your teeth, or prepare a meal, you put your muscles and skeletal structures to the test. You lose your ability to protect and keep yourself safe if you lose your balance!

You run the risk of falling and injuring yourself if you don’t have control over your body. That is why balance and coordination exercises are so important, particularly following an injury or illness.

Exercise is commonly thought to strengthen our muscles, but it can also benefit other systems in our bodies. Exercises that target your arms, legs, or back are examples of area-specific exercises!

Dr Sharon was diligent in dealing with my back and neck issues. She increased my mobility tremendously and the home exercises she gave me did wonders for my golf game and general health. I want to continue a program to increase my mobility even more and enjoy the benefits of painless activities. Her program has done wonders

In September 2022 I had a complex shoulder surgery and began a regimen of physical therapy with Dr. Sharon Sims of Back in Motion here in Verandah. I can only say that today I’m in better physical shape then I’ve been in years. By following her treatment plan I’m able to play “pain free golf” a couple of time a week and participate in fitness activities -- pickleball is next on my list. It wasn’t easy, requiring a lot of work, but it paid off. Thanks Dr. Sharon.I have been seeing Dr. Sharon for a few weeks. After the 2nd visit the severe lower back pain was alleviated. So much so that I have been able to resume golf with much better swing ( although that's not saying much LoL).If you need physical therapy this is the place and she is the right doctor.Be prepared to work hard. If you follow directions you'll be satisfied.

Dr. Sharon is a miracle worker! I ended up with nerve damage after a partial knee replacement and was very slow to recover. Dr. Sharon kept me motivated even though I was not seeing immediate improvement. I kept at it and she has helped me build back my quad strength and range of motion. She noticed I also had some back issues and the orthopedic inserts she recommended for me are really alleviating my back pain and helping me with my gait. I also tried dry needling and that also helped relieve pain and helped with my range of motion. My surgeon said it could take up to a year for my nerves to regenerate and I plan on continuing to see Dr. Sharon until I reach my goal of walking without a limp and being able to resume an active lifestyle. Dr. Sharon was able to adapt exercises so that I could feel that I was improving and her vast experience in the field was obvious. I strongly recommend Dr. Sharon for both flexibility and pain treatment as well as post operative care. She is the best!

Sharon is an excellent physical therapist, highly competent, professional and personable! She has been helping me with both my shoulder and my back. I am now comfortably walking, doing the elliptical and biking, and will be golfing and playing pickleball soon. Thanks so much!

I attended an arthritis discovery seminar by Dr. Sharon Sims and found it very informative. I booked my first appointment for an evaluation and the office staff made the process extremely easy and more importantly, efficient! Dr. Sharon's diagnosis was thorough and a treatment plan immediately put into place and future appointments booked. I feel much better after just 4 appointments. Thank you, Dr. Sharon and Back in Motion! Highly recommend!

I suffered a stroke in early October 2021. The stroke mostly resulted in numbness and loss of sensory perception on my left side. However, Dr. Sharon pointed out that it also involved some loss of some motor skills along with a weakened sense of balance.Dr. Sharon has been working with me not only in strengthening my left side but also increasing my sense of balance which has definitely improved over the last several weeks. My golf game has also improved as a result of the therapy.Dr. Sharon’s diagnostic and evaluation skills are exceptional along with her ability to arrive at a treatment plan that has reduced some of the damage from my stroke. I highly recommend Dr. Sharon and am thankful for the physical therapy which she has provided.Thanks,Gary C. Reich D.D.S. ( retired)
