One oft-overlooked form of physical therapy which tops the rest in terms of injury prevention? Exercise. Whether introduced as an alternative to today’s sedentary, desk-based lifestyle or as a strengthening tool in response to a specific injury, exercise is used to target weak muscles and address muscular imbalances.
When it comes to exercise or physical activity, consistency is key. People who tend to work out regularly manage to keep physically fit, well into their golden years. Endorphins released during physical activity keep aches and pains at bay.
Our experienced physical therapists can help evaluate your fitness level and help design a customized workout plan, based on your mobility and lifestyle. If you are exercising with limited mobility, we can devise a plan that will help you follow an exercise regimen effectively while avoiding re-injury.
