Why exercise? First and foremost, our bodies are built to move. We have joints to bend, muscles to contract, an efficient blood pump (heart) and lungs to breathe. Movement and exercise is not only beneficial to our health, but essential for life. It is arguably the most important regulator of your body’s physiological systems.
There is of course more to it. Appropriate exercise is known to help with a range of injuries, physical conditions and mental health disorders. There is significant evidence for the use of exercise in injury recovery, chronic disease and illness, and pain management, for example. See Common Conditions for more information.
Importantly, exercise therapy aims to help you continue or return to productive work, home life and enjoy the things you love.
