SUPERVISED EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE WITH INTERMITTENT CLAUDICATION
We are health professionals situated in a public gym which specialises in rehabilitation of chronic illness. We are offering you ten sessions of exercise supervised by a physiotherapist.
We aim to make it fun and to give you the opportunity to be active while working on your health, at the same time gaining knowledge about your condition and mingling with other people who have the same health challenges.
Our gym is a public gym and we cater for a lot of older people as well as the young. We are not expecting you to buy special “exercise clothes”. Loose fitting clothes and comfortable shoes that are good for walking is all we advise.
But “I CANNOT WALK”!
This is not unusual for your condition. The reason why we offer this service is to assist you increasing your walking distance.
Our exercise programme is adaptable to every level of ability, and although we know that challenging your walking distance may result in pain, we aim to assist you to exercise within comfortable limits. There will be opportunities to stop and rest at all times.
RESULTS OF SUPERVISED EXERCISE PROGRAMMES FOR INTERMITTENT CLAUDICATION:
There is a lot of international research available which is VERY encouraging. People significantly increase their walking distance in the majority of cases (increases from 100 to 1000 metres are not unusual). There are also significant changes in general health which reduce the chance of further health problems (such as stroke or heart disease).
We look forward to welcoming you to our gym! Contact us for more information.
