Exercise Therapy

Exercise therapy utilizes specific movements to improve body functions, focusing on moving the body in a way to relieve symptoms and improve mobility while preventing and managing pain.

It can take many different forms. For some clients, it’s simply spending more time moving and less time sitting. For others, it can involve biking, jogging, or lifting weights. Whatever the means, the goal is the same: improving using physical activity to improve overall health and well-being.

Why Exercise Therapy?

Injuries can happen. Chronic conditions slowly emerge. Sometimes we simply move our bodies in ways that don’t quite feel right. An entire lifetime of this can cause some serious pain. A regular exercise therapy program can help with injury prevention and rehabilitation, as well as address any faulty movement patterns that can lead to pain and injury in the future.

Exercise therapy allows muscles to become more flexible, prevents muscle atrophy and deterioration, restores muscle strength, improves balance, and increases overall confidence in physical abilities. Research has shown that a therapeutic exercise program can treat a wide variety of conditions including back pain, arthritis, diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease, or multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, and ALS to name a few.
