The aim of Functional Rehabilitation is to simply restore normal function to the joints, soft tissues, and nervous system. Functional Rehabilitation is rehabilitation with the goal of increasing ability in activities of daily living at home, during competitive sports, at school or work and during recreational activities. Functional rehabilitation involves exercises designed to increase function in areas of weakness with the goal of restoring proper movement patterns. By observing a faulty movement pattern, it is possible to identify muscles that may be weak and contributing, therefore making it possible to correct the muscle weakness by strengthening, stretching, and re-educating the soft tissue. Through Dr. Patron's education and training he has developed the skills to become thorough and effective at treating various injuries.
