MPR’s Nichole Chaviano, PT, DPT, demonstrates some physical therapy exercises on the slide board.
The slide board is utilized in private practice orthopedic Physical Therapy clinics and professional sports teams for low impact, closed chain functional exercise training. The slide board improves balance, coordination, proprioception and overall core and extremity strength.
The slide board is a multifaceted tool that can be used with formal strengthening exercises including the forwards and lateral lunges seen in the video. It can also be used for cardio vascular strengthening as seen with the mountain climbers being performed. Finally it can be used in sport specific training including the skaters being seen.
