A home exercise program is a set of therapeutic workout routines that are performed inside a person’s home. These workout routines can be performed without the presence of a medical professional.
Typically, the individual will be taught the exercise routine by their physical therapist first, and then perform the routine at home to increase the chances of it being successful. Home exercise programs, if performed correctly and frequently, have the ability to treat pain in the lower back, shoulders, neck, ankles, hips, and a variety of other targeted areas.
There are some general rules that can be applied when performing home regimens, however, your physical therapist will most likely give you a specific approach and you should follow their specific instructions.
What you should wear for home rehab – You should wear appropriate exercise clothing, preferably non-restrictive, so that you have free range of motion. Also, it is important to make sure you are executing the exercises in an area that is safe and conducive to performing the type of movements you will be doing.
How to properly warm-up before exercising – It is always important to perform a general warm-up before beginning your rehab exercise. This warm-up can be done by simply doing 10 to 15 minutes of brisk walking or another similar activity which you find comfortable. You should never perform any activity that increases your pain.
How much & how often should I do this – When starting your strengthening exercise, it is usually recommended to start with 1 set of 8-10 repetitions, and using either no resistance or light resistance. Gradually, you can increase your exercise to 2-3 sets of 15-20 repetitions. These exercises will be most effective if they are performed on a regular basis. If you can, try to do the entire program once per day.

Dear Valued Patient,
The purpose of this letter is to inform you that KureSmart Pain Management will officially become Clearway Pain Solutions effective April 1, 2020. This is the final phase in a merger of these two companies that has been under way since 2019.
The integration of KureSmart and Clearway creates even greater support for patients. The driving force for both organizations has always been based on the needs of the patients and it will remain so with the new name.
As we move forward with providing state-of-the-art pain management and interventional care, patients should not expect any changes to the care they receive from our staff. All processes and employees will remain the same; only the name on the door will change.
What to expect:
All communications and correspondence will utilize the “Clearway Pain Solutions” name and brand. This includes billing statements, patient portal notification, text messages and emails.
Signage at each property will be modified as part of the transition, and the appearance of some offices will be updated, as well.
Your Care Team will remain the same and continue to provide you with the same excellent care you’ve come to expect.
