Exercise has been shown to be one of the top ways to manage chronic conditions such as metabolic conditions (ex. Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus), neurological conditions (ex. chronic pain and fatigue, strokes, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries), and cardiorespiratory conditions (ex. angina, heart attacks, COPD). Benefits of exercise do not only include management of conditions. Exercise can also help reduce risks of other chronic conditions, help lead to weight loss, help strengthen muscles, improve neural function and neuromuscular control, improve heart and lung function, and improve mental health.

Exercise routines can include resistance training, aerobic training, balance exercises, neuromuscular exercises, mobility exercises, gait retraining, and hydrotherapy. Our Registered Kinesiologist + Clinical Exercise Physiologist, Jane Nettleton, has completed her Masters in Clinical Exercise Physiology at Deakin University in Australia. Much of her Master’s work was focused on patients and chronic condition management. With her guidance, you will be given exercise programs and advice that fit your goals in a safe and effective way.
