Exercise & Active Living
Many patients are sent to an exercise specialist (kinesiologist) to help them improve their health through exercise. Patients living with chronic diseases like hypertension, high cholesterol and/or diabetes can improve and manage their conditions by increasing their physical activity.
We work with patients who are learning to exercise properly with chronic pain, cardiopulmonary issues, metabolic syndrome, arthritis, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, weight issues and other controlled medical conditions.
We provide fitness counseling and training with proper monitoring before and during exercise when needed. We get you moving safely and within your abilities to get you to your goal.
Patient care is provided individually and/or in a group setting.
Physical activity is an important component of healthy living. The benefits of regular physical activity include:
- Improved and/or maintain overall health
- Stronger muscles and bones
- Improved posture and balance
- Improved physical fitness
- Weight control
- Increased self-esteem
- Feeling more energetic
- Stress reduction and relaxation
- Continued independent living in later life
