Throughout the course of treatment at PTOSI, therapists often work in conjunction with Physical Therapy Assistants to further assist patients in exercise programs designed specifically for each patients needs.
PTOSI Fit is a developed continuation program that our trained therapists often utilize to provide patients with a unique opportunity to incorporate Pilates, Yoga, or Total Resistance Training (TRX), into their individualized Home Exercise Program.
Whether you are currently receiving treatment or have wrapped it up and would like to continue an exercise program to stay in shape, PTOSI Fit is the ideal solution.
Pilates is a form of exercise that emphasizes your lower back, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, etc. It develops strength, flexibility, coordination, muscular endurance, good posture and balance, with a lower chance of injury associated with other forms of exercise.
Of the past ten years, awareness of Pilates rehabilitative effects has increased and is often recommended to help treat patients with foot, knee, back, shoulder, and neck pain, as well as improve overall strength and flexibility and enhance mental awareness.

Yoga is widely practiced for health and relaxation using breath control, simple medication, and the adoption of specific body postures. Although generally perceived as more of a preventative practice, yoga has the potential to address physical dysfunction, while impacting the neuro-musculoskeltal system to optimize posture, balance and alignment.
