Among the many interventions available to physical therapists, therapeutic exercise has been shown to be fundamental to improving function and decreasing disability. It is the premise of this text that, through carefully prescribed therapeutic exercise intervention, an individual can make significant changes in functional performance and disability, and that physical therapists have the unique educational training to be the preferred clinician for prescribing therapeutic exercise.
