Neuromuscular & Movement Disorders affect over 5 million people in North America. Most disorders are chronic, meaning it persists over a long period of time. Additionally, most diseases are progressive which means that the symptoms grow worse over time. Our goal is to help those with muscle weakness gain more control and balance of their muscles and keep quality of life.
Our land session program will focus utilizing a variety of exercise equipment both standing and sitting on a chair. All exercise design will be focused on helping the individual to improve functional activities of daily living known as ADLS. We will review assessments to provide a system of evaluating exercise choice.
