There is a wealth of medical evidence to suggest that if you keep mentally and physically fit, through regular exercise then you increase your chances of living a healthier life.
Physiotherapists encourage people to regularly exercise and can tailor an exercise program to individuals needs, fitness levels and physical condition.
Physiotherapy is not just beneficial following injury but can assist in maintaining an active lifestyle through self management. On-going maintenance treatments are not usually required.
