Exercise Prescription


What Does Exercise Prescription mean to Front Runner Physiotherapy?

We believe that exercise prescription should be an individualized approach based on your strengths and weaknesses to therapeutically remodel tissue and reduce pain. Whether your goal is to reduce pain, return to sport, improve range of motion, regain fine motor skills, or improve balance, none of this is achievable and maintainable without the strength to move and control our bodies.

Why is Exercise used in your rehab?

Passive modalities work for short-term pain relief and tissue healing, but we at Front Runner Physiotherapy believe that the human body is meant to be strong. A growing body of evidence suggests that cookie-cutter programs do not work. No one ever got healthier laying on a table or foam rolling. We are in the business of maximizing fitness! There has never been a time in someone's life when they wished they were weaker. Exercises need to be dosed much like medications being dosed with a certain weight, frequency, intensity, and type of exercise. Injured and healthy tissues respond differently to mechanical load, and it is important to have proper guidance for injured tissues under load. Proper adherence to these principles can reduce the risk of future injury.
