Maintenance Exercises for Life long Conditions

We have two types of exercise therapies for clients who have completed the Cardiac Rehabilitation or Pulmonary Rehabilitation Programs: therapeutic exercise and rehabilitative exercise. Therapeutic exercises specific to the current dysfunction are usually structural based. They are carried out during the period of pain so as to relieve the symptoms. Rehabilitative exercises however are conducted for a prolonged period. They are a bunch of exercises to stretch and strengthen parts of the body like the limbs.

Spinal Strength and Conditioning Program

A conditioned back with the help of suitable exercises will shield the spine and fight a considerable amount of strain. Strengthening the muscles that hold the spine straight and upright is vital for apparent reasons. It is therefore mandatory that people work on flexibility exercises to condition the back. Working to strengthen the spinal column and to hold up the muscle structure are all equally crucial. Back exercises focus on the back muscles, the abdominal muscles, and gluteus and hip muscles. Our physiotherapists demonstrate exercises that work toward strengthening the back and correct a patient’s form to ensure relief off pain or other discomfort.  Exercise conditioning programs help people that have undergone surgeries or have recovered from injuries return to everyday activities and enjoy an energetic lifestyle.  A conditioning program not only reinforces the fitness of the body but also allows individuals to return to sports and other recreational. Such programs should be safe and effective for individuals, and thus should be performed as per the doctor’s instructions.

8 Elements of a Spinal Strength Conditioning Program

Low back exercises strengthen the core muscles and ensure that the spine is stable. Regular preventative rehabilitation programs (that strengthen lumbar muscles) along with core stability and proprioception when performed well are sure to reduce the risk of low back pain. Individuals should exercise to maintain adequate muscle power, bone density and cardiovascular health and thereby maintain a healthy lifestyle.
