Modern life – desk work, cars, repetitive computer use – mean one thing for the human population: reduced levels of manual labour. The human body was designed to move, to build on its core strength, to walk, run, lift, stretch. For many of us, modern life means we are simply out of condition and possess poor strength and posture.
At EastWest Physiotherapy we offer our patients a safe and effective strength training program, primarily based on the research and clinical expertise of therapists such as Francine St George, Stuart McGill and Kit Laughlin. Exercises commence with activation of dormant segments to overcome muscle amnesia caused by injury or inactivity. Progression towards functional movement patterns and heavier loads can then occur.
Small classes with individual programs are the key to avoiding injury and building a stronger physical base.
