Exercise Therapy incorporates specific exercises to stretch, strengthen and stabilize the injured and surrounding areas. Each patient is assessed to determine their flexibility, strength and core stability with respect to the injury. Your physiotherapist will design a specific program for you, including your own personalized exercise program which will be adapted as you progress in your recovery and return to function.
Exercises may include the use of bands, free weights, exercise balls or other equipment. Our therapists will provide you with written instructions on how to perform your home exercise program so you can continue to make gains in your recovery between treatment sessions.
A wide variety of injuries can be treated with exercise therapy. Common injuries include sports, work, and orthopaedic injuries, as well as injuries sustained in a car accident. Exercise therapy will help improve your mobility, strength, and stability as well as focus on your posture. Exercise therapy can help you improve your general body conditioning and work towards alleviating injury specific pain.
