Our primary care and specialty physicians can prescribe an effective exercise regimen that’s customized to your particular health condition and needs. Such programs may be part of a preventive health care plan to help you manage your weight, reduce chronic pain, increase your energy and reduce your risk for certain diseases. They may also be part of an overall rehabilitation program for an illness or injury that you have suffered. Regular exercise can also help reduce the effects of aging and lessen your risk of injury while playing a sport, working or performing daily chores. In some cases, your physician may prescribe physical therapy to help you address a particular issue. A comprehensive exercise program should include a warm-up period with targeted stretching exercises followed by a cardio workout and strength training.
