Post-Rehab programs are designed for those individuals who are recovering from a variety of musculoskeletal disorders. Given the nature of most soft tissue and joint problems, the probability of a more complete recovery is enhanced through a structured approach to exercise. Post-Rehab also includes exercise for special populations. These groups include some that may have special needs or concerns, which may require extra attention during their exercise program.
Other special populations may just need to improve their skill levels and knowledge, or increase awareness of conditioning by participating in a regular exercise program. The importance of exercise to these groups is more widely understood, as additional scientific information becomes available as to the efficacy of therapeutic programs.
Therefore, the medical conditions listed below will identify special populations who will benefit from a medically supervised exercise program.
- Musculoskeletal Disorders
- Cardiac Conditions
- Muscular Sclerosis
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Cystic Fibrosis
- Exercise Induced Asthma
- Pre and Post Natal
- Muscular Dystrophy
