When tennis players experience an injury setback, first is the physical pain. Then there is recovery time to relieve the discomfort and getting back to the courts. One answer is SimpleTherapy, a new web site that provides an easy alternative to rehabilitation.
As Dr. Nic Gay, one of the founders of SimpleTherapy, points out, "The site is no substitute for a doctor visit for any injury. It is an exercise therapy based on the individual's needs."
The process begins with a quick assessment to determine the best approach for each person's condition. As Dr. Gay stated. "It is not just about recovery, but also prevention and maintenance."
Then a program of video exercises is created based either on a particular area of the body or a specific sport. These are typically 10 to 20 minute sessions that require either no equipment or items found in most homes or offices.
According to Dr. Gay, an orthopedic surgeon, the site has been developed over two years of research and is designed give each patient "a balanced body."
After each session, there is feedback as to how the exercises felt and then adjustments made to the exercises if needed. "This is what makes us different from all the YouTube videos that are one way with no interaction," said Dr. Gay.
A handy feature of SimpleTherapy is reminders that can be sent in either e-mail or text to achieve the full benefit of recovery or just a nudge to do proper stretches before specific activities.
As stated on the site, SimpleTherapy provides an exercise regimen which helps many patients who
• Are limited by their insurance plan
• Find the cost of multiple co-pays prohibitive
• Can’t take the time off work to visit a clinic.
SimpleTherapy is reasonably priced at $29.99 for a three month introduction or $89.99 for a year. There is also a free one week trial to try out the site. Be sure to check out the blog with many helpful articles.
So when the next tennis injury strikes, visit SimpleTherapy and get back in the game, sooner than later.
