Re-balance your structure with an Exercise Program


How does the program work?

An exercise program can work in many ways. It can cater to improve flexibility, increase strength, improve mood, boost energy and control weight. A program allows you the patient to have a structured plan that focuses on their main goals. To provide structure to the exercise program, the F.I.T.T Principle to training will be used which stands for Frequency, Intensity, Time and Type. These main principles are regularly controlled to provide adequate adaptations to your strength, flexibility and weight to reach your main goals.

Why do you need an exercise program? At SMSM Therapy a holistic approach to treatment is very important. The treatments like deep-tissue massage and spinal manipulation must be done in conjunction with an exercise program if you want the best results. That’s why your practitioner will device an exercise program specifically for you.

How does it work? Once posture is analysed manually and through pictures your practitioner will assess areas of asymmetry (imbalance) and provide a specific exercise to provide balance to the area. Body-weight and theraband exercises are provided and practiced in the clinic. You also can purchase your set of therabands at the clinic or they are free as part of a sports therapy plan.
