Exercise is a powerful tool in the treatment and management of a wide variety of chronic health conditions and injuries. Specific muscle strengthening and endurance training has proven to be effective for many musculoskeletal and sports injuries.
General exercise has also been shown to assist those with conditions such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, parkinson’s disease, ankylosing spondylitis, sub-acute and chronic back pain, intermittent claudication as well as many other chronic conditions.
