The American College of Sport Medicine (ACSM), leader in exercise science, recommends exercising 30 minutes per day for 5 days per week, noting exercise is medicine! Especially for individuals recovering from injury, exercise can be initially seen as a threat by your body and sporadic exercise continues the threat. To avoid a threat response, start slow, progress gradually and exercise consistently. Our therapists are skilled at initiating medically approved activation programs that will enable you to resume exercise or initiate a therapeutic exercise program to achieve optimal health results.
