How Exercise Therapy Can Help You
Exercise therapy is a proven and researched method to treat many physical conditions such as arthritis, back pain, sports injuries and more. Research has shown that getting the body moving is a huge factor when it comes to the rehabilitation of injuries and conditions – this is known as active rehabilitation. By slowly and steadily rebuilding strength and natural movement patterns with exercise therapy, patients can start to get and feel better.
PhysioCare is a big advocate of exercise therapy in our clinical approach to treating patients where applicable. We say ‘where applicable’ becguse each patient we treat is on a case-by-case basis with treatment tailored to their specific needs. In both our Carrickmines and Blanchardstown clinics, we have state-of-the-art PhysioGym spaces where one-on-one personal training and group classes take place. The personal trainers who man these PhysioGym spaces work in conjunction with your Chartered Physiotherapist at PhysioCare to help you get and feel better through exercise therapy.
Exercise therapy is not confined to these PhysioGym spaces either. PhysioCare have created a free suite of over one hundred exercise videos that come with guided step-by-step instructions that you can complete whenever and wherever your pain strikes – at home or on the go. These can be accessed for free on our YouTube channel or through our free PhysioCare app (Apple / Android). As part of your treatment plan, your physiotherapist will give you a set of home exercises to complete in between treatment sessions. As such, these videos are a great tool if you are unsure on how to complete a particular step or if you want to check that you are performing the exercise properly.
With personal training sessions (with weekday appointment times early to late and availability on Saturdays too) and group classes such as The Better Neck Programme, Body Transformation, Corrective Exercise, Functional Mobility and Pilates (all levels); you can embark on a tailored fitness plan at PhysioCare supported by a highly professional team of Chartered Physiotherapists and Personal Trainers.
