Have you recently undergone a sports massage and exercise therapy session to address an injury or improve your overall well-being? If so, you're already on the right track! 
Let's dive into the next stage of your journey: progressive exercise therapy. At our clinic, we prioritise the development of individualised exercise programs to help rehabilitate injuries, prevent further damage, and strengthen your body. 

Progressing your exercises 

After your initial exercise therapy consultation and examination, along with a soothing massage, we've designed a personalised plan tailored to your needs. You've been introduced to functional exercises, which you can practice as your "homework." But what comes next in this exciting process? 
In each of the following appointments, we'll focus on progressing your exercises to build strength and enhance your range of movement based on your unique requirements. We'll also assess your form, using tools like video analysis to examine your running technique, and offer guidance on correcting any flaws we identify. 

The benefits of progressive exercise 

Let's address a common misconception surrounding strength and conditioning exercises. Some may perceive them as monotonous, repetitive tasks that consume excessive amounts of time. However, when properly progressed, these exercises can be engaging, mentally stimulating, and physically beneficial, regardless of your goal. By committing to them, you'll begin to notice positive changes that will motivate you further on your journey. 
To alleviate concerns about time commitment, we'll only assign a few exercises for you to perform, typically once a day with a manageable number of repetitions. You might even earn the occasional day off for good behaviour! 

Understanding the importance of progressive exercise 

One challenge we frequently encounter is a lack of understanding regarding the significance of rehabilitation and strengthening exercises for complete recovery and injury prevention. As part of our treatment, we prioritise educating our clients about this crucial aspect. 
In the long run, engaging in strength training promotes a healthier body. Rather than waiting for injuries to occur, let's focus on preventing them altogether through a combination of maintenance massage, exercise therapy, and strength and conditioning work. Our primary objective as therapists is to equip you with the tools necessary for self-care. With our ongoing guidance, you can achieve your desired goals, whether that involves injury-free day-to-day living or excelling in your sport while minimising the risk of unnecessary harm. 
By investing in progressive exercise therapy, you're embracing a proactive approach to your health and well-being. You're demonstrating a commitment to your body's long-term strength and resilience. Remember, it's not just about recovering from injuries; it's about empowering yourself to lead a vibrant and active life. Plus, the best cure for most injuries is to prevent them in the first place, and progressive exercise therapy helps you to do just that! 
At our clinic, we're here to support you every step of the way and work tirelessly to provide you with personalised care and guidance.
