Exercise therapy is a broad term describing the use of exercise as a treatment for a wide range of health conditions. It is simply a physical activity plan prescribed for recovery from any condition designated by a health professional. As human movement experts, kinesiologists are perfectly suited to help their clients become more active or return to activities they love using exercise therapy.

Types of Exercises

Exercise therapy draws on the fundamentals of healthy exercise: movement for the sake of optimising your body’s function. Agility, balance, range of motion, flexibility, body aesthetics, body composition, strength and aerobics are pillars of physical health.

Exercise falls into these main categories:

Range of motion training

Resistive exercise

Balance and agility training

Strength training

Aerobic conditioning

Exercise therapy targets each of these exercise categories with specific movements or activities. The result is unlimited exercises because variations can be designed for any common exercise to perfectly suit your needs. It is up to your exercise therapist or kinesiologist to tailor a program to your needs and goals.

Some common exercises prescribed for exercise therapy are:

Squats and split squats

Rows

Bird dogs

Rotator cuff stability exercises

Wall angels, open books for shoulder mobility

Hip hinges

Single leg balance, bosu and stability board exercises

Ladder work for agility

Circuit training or cardio intervals for aerobic exercises

We Help Clients Recover From

An overwhelming body of evidence suggests that exercise can improve body weight (up or down), combat health conditions and diseases such as type 2 diabetes and cancer, improve mood and energy levels, promote quality sleep and generally improve social interactions and quality of life.

Some conditions that we work with clients to improve are:

Soft tissue injury

Chronic pain

Arthritis

Hernia (all types)

Obesity

Hernia (all types)

There are rare cases when exercise is not recommended, for example when a client has an unstable or acute cardiac condition, or unhealed fractures. To make sure you're ready for exercise, a PARQ+ form is an essential part of getting started. The PARQ+ determines your readiness for exercise therapy, and recommends seeking guidance from a medical doctor when necessary.
