ARE YOU IN PAIN AND LOOKING FOR A SOLUTION?

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.

WHAT TO EXPECT IN YOUR CONSULT

Unfortunately, without proper guidance, general exercise and various types of sport can also aggravate certain medical conditions or injuries.
