At Fanti + Associates Physiotherapy Thunder Bay, we use a specialized home exercise program that can be emailed or sent directly to your phone via text message. By doing so, it ensures that you have the instructions that you need at your fingertips in order to stay consistent with your home programming.

These programs can include detailed instructions, pictures, and videos to help guide you through your home-based rehab program.

Exercise is often used for the treatment of both chronic conditions and acute injuries. It may include core stabilization exercises for low back pain, postural exercises, stability, and flexibility training for whiplash-associated disorders (to name a few examples).

Your treatment may include exercises that target muscle endurance, cardiovascular exercises, flexibility, balance, and/or strengthening exercises depending on your condition and specific needs.

These will be extensively reviewed and discussed with your physical therapist in the clinic in order to determine the appropriate plan to help you to meet your rehabilitative goals.
