Progressive Individualized Exercises (PIE) is a helpful, time-saving manual that will enable the therapist, trainer, and/or physician to depend on one complete source for constructing comprehensive illustrated exercise programs. PIE is designed soMoreProgressive Individualized Exercises (PIE) is a helpful, time-saving manual that will enable the therapist, trainer, and/or physician to depend on one complete source for constructing comprehensive illustrated exercise programs. PIE is designed so that an individual page containing one exercise can be duplicated and given to the patient. Duplication of all prescribed exercises will form the home program booklet. The authors, Joelle Schneider, PT, and Joan Cecil Passanisi, PT, have provided a page of general rules that also may be included in home program booklets. Because graded muscle function varies from zero to normal strength, PIE includes exercises in gravity-eliminated and gravity-resisted positions. This resource has the exercises listed individually so that patients will receive only prescribed exercises that are appropriate for specific muscle functions. The book is fully illustrated so that patients may have a complete understanding of their exercise program. PIE is categorized by joint movement. The material will allow easy access to exercise programs containing passive, active assistive, active, resistive, isometric, and stretching exercises, in various positioning for facial, neck, trunk, upper extremities, and lower extremities. Some exercises are listed by common name as well, such as quad sets or bridging. Each exercise has a space for the length of time to hold a muscle contraction, and for the number of repetitions of a movement that is determined by the therapist on an individual basis. There are several advantages to having each exercise clearly illustrated and accompanied by simplified, easy-to-read instructions. These advantages include: (1) patient compliance, (2) faster rehabilitation, and (3) time savings for the prescriber and the patient.
