Aside from the rigors of sports or specific rehabilitative physical training, our Toronto physiotherapy and sports medicine experts encourage anyone to participate in as much physical activity as they can during the course of a regular day. The benefits of cumulative, consistent physical activity over time have been documented by research studies. The longer you exercise, consistently, over the years, the more mobile and fit you will be in middle and old age. That's important.
Just Do It
It doesn’t matter what your current level of fitness is. You will benefit from every 15-minute block of physical activity you add to your day. That comes from solid research. With improved fitness levels comes the reduced risk of lifestyle diseases like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
Now, it’s understood that any physical exercise program should be approved by your medical practitioner, but for most people, adding some walking or stair climbing shouldn’t pose any concerns. If you do have questions about physical activity and your own individual needs, our Toronto physiotherapists are ready with advice and suggestions on how much and what types of activities to emphasize in your case.
On The Go
Our Toronto physiotherapists, chiropractors, and other medical professionals are ready to give you any advice you may need on your current physical condition and fitness needs, along with giving suggestions as to the specific exercises that would benefit you most. Don’t hesitate to call or come by one of our Toronto clinics today to make an appointment.
