Exercise therapy uses specific movements to improve the way the body functions. A program is designed based on your ability level and desired outcomes. It is focusing on achieving optimal functional movement patterns that increase strength, mobility, flexibility & endurance. Movement is an integral part of our makeup, and it is when we stop moving that we encounter issues. Each exercise therapy program is unique and designed for each individual, and then progressed as your function improves. Our exercise therapy programs are intended for those that are experiencing chronic pain, acute injuries or need technique improvement through their training and sport.
Movement is the key to making short term changes permanent. Our “Pillars of movement” system helps you establish optimal movement patterns. Injuries do happen, and sometimes they become chronic, sometimes we get lazy with how we move our bodies that are less than ideal. Moving this way over a long period can cause further injury and pain.
We offer a range of exercise programs, techniques and movement modifications to suit every individual. Addressing faulty movement patterns is key to long term recovery. Much research has also been done that supports the use of therapeutically prescribed exercise programs for conditions such as back pain, arthritis, diabetes, osteoporosis and heart disease.
While surgery and other medical interventions are, in some cases, unavoidable, exercise therapy can help people either avoid or better prepare for medical intervention. Exercise therapy helps to reduce the recovery time and the speed at which you can return to your daily activities. While reducing pain & improving general physical health exercise therapy has many other benefits too.
Our practitioners can assess, identify and treat movement-related dysfunctions. Each exercise program is specific to the individual’s challenges and desired outcomes. The main benefit of a structured program is to live pain-free and increase your quality of life. We work collaboratively with you, continually monitoring and modifying the program depending on how you adapt to it.
