What is Specialized Exercise Therapy?
Exercise therapy is a regimen or plan of physical activities designed and prescribed for specific therapeutic goals. Its purpose is to restore normal musculoskeletal function or to reduce pain caused by diseases or injuries.
Exercise training or therapy can take many different forms. For some people it may be moving more and sitting less, and for others it may mean getting on a bike, jogging or lifting weights. Each injury or movement dysfunction is different. This means that every individual being prescribed exercise will have an exercise program specific to that individual. The ultimate goal is to use specialized physical activity to improve health, function and overall well-being.
