What is therapeutic exercise?

Physiotherapists are most well known for exercise prescription and it is well established that therapeutic exercise is the best for you if you’re looking for a health care treatment plan with long term results and better quality of life! Therapeutic exercise is the intentional performance of specific movements for the purposes of improving health and function of bodily systems during daily activities. “Bodily systems” is quite broad for good reason; therapeutic exercise therapy has positive effects on all bodily systems. Whether you sprained your ankle, had a sports injury, or suffer from anxiety and depression, therapeutic exercise can help you achieve the healthy lifestyle you always desired!

I Have Health Condition(s) and I’m Worried That Exercise May Be Too Difficult for Me, or Completely Contraindicated.

Don’t worry, first of all, with vast clinical experience in patient care, we know all of the contraindications to exercise therapy. As long as you provide our health care professionals with your medical history, we have you covered! Second of all, in the form of health care, we provide a wide variety of therapeutic exercises that are simpler than you may think and there are exercises that nearly everyone can do. What type of strength exercises we give you and their parameters totally depend on the status of your injury, your current fitness level, your health history and much more. Our physiotherapists perform a thorough assessment to determine the proper exercises for you. Injury prevention and injury recovery are our forte. Be it overuse injuries, rotator cuff injuries, tendon injuries, acute injuries, joint pain, or even high blood pressure, we are here to help! And if you have any questions, please just ask us!

I’ve Had Exercise Therapy From a Physiotherapist in the Past and It Didn’t Work. Why Would I Do It Now?

Try not to paint all exercises with the same brush! What happened in the past could have been a failure for a number of reasons. Based on our experience, sometimes exercise programs go wrong because the wrong exercises were being prescribed or the exercise parameters were not appropriate. Sometimes too much at the wrong time can actually make you feel worse.

At Maximum Potential NW Calgary appointments, our experts provide exercise activities and a level of care tailored to the current situation, and progress as you progress through your chronic pain recovery. We also combine other techniques like therapeutic relaxation massages and manual therapy so you can experience your most exceptional health care journey with us!

Physiotherapy Exercise Is Boring! Can I Sign-Up for a Bootcamp or Something Else?

We encourage all physical activity but if you’re injured, it is important to have a plan. You need to know what exercises are safe to do without risk of injury. You also need to know which exercises to focus on to correct your imbalances, increase muscle tone and improve blood flow to accelerate the healing process. We recommend that you talk to your physiotherapist and develop a plan to proceed with whatever exercises programs you want to do. Also, we think that you should check out PhysioYoga, which we have at our clinic. PhysioYoga is the best way to integrate your physiotherapy assessment with a comprehensive exercise therapy program that you can do at home and in our clinic.
