Transition Exercise Program
Transition exercise is medically supervised exercise training and post-therapy training with the goal to maintain and/or improve residual functional deficits that remain after physical therapy, chiropractic, or medical care. Many people are aware of the benefits of exercise in preventing chronic disease, but exercise can also be a powerful complement to traditional medical intervention. A physician may refer a patient to the Transition Program if the patient has a medical condition to which exercise has been proven to be therapeutic and the supervision of an exercise professional is important for safety. A referral may also be made when a patient no longer requires the services of a physical therapist and is ready to follow a home exercise program.
Exercise has been shown to improve medical outcomes in chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and coronary artery disease. Few individuals, however, know how to begin a safe, effective exercise program. Jane Phillips Wellness Connection provides the equipment and expertise required for each client to achieve maximal benefits with the fewest risks of aggravating health or physical conditions.
The professional staff, trained in exercise prescription, will monitor each client to ensure a safe and controlled exercise setting. The exercise specialist will communicate with the referring physician concerning progress and any problems. Cost of the program is minimal.
Physician referral is required for this program.
Membership includes a maximum of two (2) 30-minute sessions per week with an exercise specialist plus regular access to the Wellness Center.
