Why is Strength and Conditioning Important?

If you look at all of the top athletes in the world, what is the one thing that they all have in common? They all have a very strict strength and conditioning program that they cannot miss. The reason they do this is that they have to make sure that they are performing at the highest level they can. A lot of people pay money to see them play and they are also paid a lot of money to play so that’s why they have the best trainers in the world. Llin Physical Therapy offers  private sports rehab and training UES NYC where we have some of the best strength and conditioning programs out there. 


Why is Strength and Conditioning Important?


When it comes to working out and being healthy it is important to understand why you are doing what you are doing and what the benefits are. There are many different ways to get strength besides just going to the gym and lifting weights and running. For example yoga, you need to have great core strength and flexibility to be able to do some of the poses and hold them. Strength and conditioning is a great way to change your body and get the results that you are looking for. Whether you are new to strength and conditioning or an expert in it you will get a lot more motivation by working out this way than your typical lifting weights and a crowded gym. Llin Physical Therapy is a one-on-one training program that focuses on a variety of tools to improve movement, health, and physical performance to help improve their clients and make them feel amazing. 



There are a ton of benefits that come with strength and conditioning that a lot of people do not know about. Some of the benefits include the following:


  • Preventing injury

  • Promoting healthy bones

  • Improved posture

  • Enhanced mood

  • Increased metabolism

  • Increased fitness  


Strength and conditioning protect you from preventable injuries. Understanding body mechanics and having a good foundation when it comes to working out will be well-poised to strengthen tendons and ligaments and eliminate any muscle imbalances, which are some of the main causes of injury.

Exercises For Knee Pain


If you experience any knee pain, these exercises may be beneficial to you. Knee issues may include a hard time balancing, sharp knee pain, pain when you move your leg. If you have any of these symptoms, these may work for you!

  • Quadriceps Stretch- Stand straight with both feet on the ground. Next, Bend one leg towards your back and hold it with the corresponding hand. Hold for 10 seconds, then switch to the other side.

  • Half Squat- Stand with your feet about a foot apart. Keep your back straight and sit into a squatting position. Hold this stretch for 15 seconds.

  • Leg Extensions- Sit in a chair with your feet on the ground. Next, straighten one leg and then put it back down. Do this as many times as you can for each leg.


Exercises For Hip Pain


Hip pain is very common and can be extremely painful. These exercises target your hips and not only stretch them but they can also strengthen your hips!

  • Side Leg Raises- Lay down on your side with your legs straight out. Lift the leg that is closest to the ceiling as far as you can and put it back down. Do this as many times as you can on each side.

  • Glute Lifts- Lay on your stomach with both legs straight. Lift one leg straight towards the ceiling as far as you can. 

  • Hamstring Curl- Stand straight with both feet on the ground. Curl one leg backward at the knee, bringing your foot towards the ceiling.


Exercises For Your Shoulders


Just like hip pain, shoulder pain is very common. It can be caused by many day-to-day activities or even just bad posture. These shoulder exercises can help relieve this pain if they are done often:

  • Superman- This exercise is done laying on your stomach. Its name comes from the position of your body, it looks as if you’re flying like superman. From this position, you will lift your arms and legs while keeping your stomach planted on the ground.

  • Scapular Rotation- Stand straight and without shrugging your shoulders, lift your arm at a 45-degree angle and lift as high as you can without moving your shoulders. 

  • Shoulder Tap- Get into a push-up position. You will stay with your arms straight and instead of pushing up and down, you will tap your left hand to your right shoulder. Repeat for both sides 10 times each.

Physical therapy for lower back pain

Untitled design (40).png

If you're searching for private sports rehab and training UES NYC for your lower back pain, look no further! Llin Physical Therapy has your back — literally. Most physical therapy treatments designed for lower back pain will include some combination of the following exercises:




Proper stretching paired with active exercise should help maintain a normal range of motion as well as provide relief for muscles that may be suffering from disuse atrophy, spasm from improper posture, or nerve irregularities. Following a stretching routine specifically tailored to the patient by his/her medical professional is one of the simplest paths to recovery.

Dynamic Stabilization


Exercise balls, balancing machines, and specific stabilizing exercises all have at least one thing in common: dynamic stabilization. These types of exercises strengthen the secondary muscles of the spine as well as the range of motion for the spine itself.


Core Strength


Strengthening the abdominal muscles as well as the lower back muscles is what core strength is all about. Some core strength exercises are:

  • Specific Abdominal Strengthening: Abdominal machines, crunches, sit-ups, and leg raises.


  • Lower Back Exercises: Extends the spine by utilizing the lower back muscles. If the machines designed for these exercises are not readily available, another method to execute the exercise is to lie on your stomach while slowly raising your chest from the ground. 


  •  'Good-mornings': An exercise that specifically strengthens the lower back muscles. The patient stands with his/her legs straight and shoulder width apart, with a weighted bar (typically a broomstick) across the shoulders. Then, the patient slowly bends forward until his/her back is nearly parallel to the floor before returning to the starting posture. These are very similar to bending down to touch your toes, but with weight across your shoulders being involved.


Lower back pain sufferers are often referred to physical therapy in an effort to supply the patient with non-surgical treatment and recovery before considering more invasive treatments, such as back surgery, if all else fails. With physical therapy, the hope is that there will be a decrease in back pain, increase in function, as well as to ingrain a steady and disciplined workout routine in the patient for the purpose of preventing future back issues.
