FUNCTIONAL FITNESS

Our Functional fitness program is geared toward individuals who are unable to tolerated traditional fitness routines due to chronic pain, a disability, or an underlying medical condition. It is also appropriate for the elderly who want to remain healthy and active as they age. The program begins with a consultation to discuss your fitness and health goals.

Following the consultation and physical exam, a physical therapist with years of experience in rehabilitation will develop your personalized fitness routine. The therapist will oversee each fitness session and monitor your progress to ensure you achieve your health and fitness goals.

CHRONIC PAIN AND FITNESS

If you suffer from chronic pain you have probably found it nearly impossible to workout without aggravating your symptoms. Even worse, you have likely given up hope, deciding exercise only makes your symptoms worse and you are better off not exercising at all. The reality is regular exercise has countless benefits in the treatment of chronic pain, and when supervised by a specialist, you will be able to experience those benefits without increasing your pain. In fact, the right exercise regimen can often reduce, or even alleviate your chronic pain.
