From plantar fasciitis to balance problems to repairing tendons and ligaments, the TheraBand® Active Care System holds power to help many different patients.
Phoenix introduced the TheraBand® Active Care System to each of its outpatient facilities several years ago. Endorsed by the APTA, these rehabilitation and wellness products are useful for therapeutic exercise, neuromuscular re-education, and functional activities.
Packaged for consumers and designed to transfer a clinic program to Transitional Care program, the TheraBand® Active Care System gives healthcare providers new options for transitional care exercise programs as well as expanding current clinical procedures. Additionally, these products come with comprehensive illustrated exercise instructions for improved ease of use by patients in TheraBand® physical therapy.
Patient empowerment, motivation, and active participation in Transitional Care exercise programs that complement in-clinic care are all critical topics for today’s healthcare providers. They promote better outcomes and a transition to a healthier lifestyle after recovery.

I lived in horrible pain from a frozen shoulder for a few months before being referred to physical therapy in hopes of avoiding surgery. I can’t thank a Mark and Danny enough for their patience, kindness, compassion, encouragement and expertise. Without them, I would NEVER have been successful persevering through over six months of therapy (especially in the early days when I cried in about one of every two or three sessions). The fact that they cared so much about me as a patient and as a person made me want to work harder and never give up.
Because of therapy, with Mark and Danny, I have my life back. I don’t live in pain. I can do daily activities, exercise, and play sports. I can’t thank them enough for the difference they have made in my life.
I have heard it said that a great physical therapist is hard to find, difficult to part with, and impossible to forget. Fortunately, for me, they weren’t hard to find, but they sure are difficult to part with, and I’ll never forget them! I am forever grateful for physical therapy with Mark and Danny at Phoenix!”
