Did you know our Exercise Physiologists can prescribe exercise to help with arthritic conditions?
Physical activity is important for managing a variety of arthritis conditions. Exercise has been shown to improve joint mobility and flexibility, muscular strength and balance as well as decrease fatigue, pain and inflammation. The weight of available evidence suggests that regular structured exercise under the supervision of an Accredited Exercise Physiologist is one of the most effective forms of treatment for arthritis.
The form of exercise most beneficial for management of arthritis is gentle, low-impact dynamic exercise. This does not outline one single movement – choose an activity that you enjoy and is most comfortable.
Our Accredited Exercise Physiologists can assist you in performing activities such as;
- Strength Training
- Reformer Pilates
If you have arthritis and are looking to improve your symptoms and function, book an Assessment with Exercise Physiologists, Toby or Kelly today to get started on your personalised arthritis exercise program!
After suffering serious damage to my right knee due to a motorbike accident in 2008, I've struggled with many movements and forms of exercise. I've also been very particular with who I let work on my knee. I've been seeing Fiona for a few months now and I must say that my knee feels better now than it has in years!! Fiona has helped me regain some (still got a way to go yet) confidence in my own ability not to mention increased functional strength and flexibility. Highly recommend Fiona and the team at Target Physio.
