What is S.T.E.P. Therapy (Scientific Therapeutic Exercise Progression)?

S.T.E.P. is a progression of therapeutic exercises designed to help tissue healing with controlled resistance to your injured area. There is no increase in pain with this exercise program and mindful awareness is encouraged as you participate.  We are experts on modifying exercises to help you achieve the desired results, without re-injury. S.T.E.P. can be initiated as early as one day after injury, or applied to chronic, difficult, and hard to heal injuries. S.T.E.P. can be used conveniently at home or a gym.
