Physiotherapy at River Stone Wellness includes an exercise component we call Exercise Therapy.
Exercise Therapy is a treatment plan that includes physical activities and therapeutic activities that help patients recover from injuries and conditions that interfere with their movement, daily activities, and overall state of well-being.
It uses gentle strengthening and stretching exercises to decrease discomfort and body pain as well as improve strength and endurance.
This type of therapy can range from activities that target specific muscles or parts of the body to more general movements that can help you improve your physical condition.
Treadmill and stationary biking are commonly incorporated into our Exercise Therapy plans. We also focus on balance exercises, strength exercises, and conditioning through aerobic exercise.
The main purpose of Exercise Therapy is to reach an optimal level of physical fitness by building strength and endurance.
We begin with exercises that are suitable to your fitness and injury level and slowly work to more vigorous forms of exercise.
