Exercise prescription is something Gardens Physiotherapy firmly believes in – the benefits of exercise and activity are clear. Furthermore, the effects of a sedentary lifestyle are also well documented and linked with many chronic conditions. However, many of us do not exercise as we should, with many living sedentary, inactive lives.
Here at Gardens Physiotherapy we believe exercise is an essential component of staying healthy and being pain free.
We can provide advice on exercises that are safe and appropriate for you – from the elite athlete to the retiree.
We can focus on issues such as muscle imbalance, strength, power, range of motion, balance, poor movement patterns and cardiovascular fitness.
These personalised exercises are made specifically for you after a full assessment, taking into consideration any injuries, imbalances or medical issues you may have (i.e. osteoarthritis, osteoporosis or chronic pain).
Or, if you would like a regular supervised exercise programme, come and try our 1:1 Clinical Pilates Individual instruction sessions. (see: http://www.gardensphysio.co.nz/clinical-pilates-2)
