Motion Plus Gym Exercise Program
Exercise is an important component of your recovery from injury to wellness. Your Physiotherapist will prescribe exercise during your treatment sessions that you may complete in clinic or at home. For some patients, consistent in clinic exercise programs are required at a regular frequency to make mobility and strength gains that cannot be achieved independently. In these situations, your Physiotherapist may recommend that you attend a gym based Physiotherapy appointment supervised by our Registered Kinesiologist, Meridith Nodwell. During these appointments you will work one on one with Meridith to meet your mobility goals using an exercise program designed by your Physiotherapist.
