Here at Elevation Physiotherapy, we take strength and conditioning very seriously. They are vital if the human body is to develop a greater capacity and to develop a greater resilience to injury and illness. Pain often results in activity avoidance. However, this avoidance will result in progressive deconditioning which will result in an increased perception of pain and which results in further activity avoidance. An appropriate cardiovascular and a progressive strength, endurance and conditioning program are vital in order to break this vicious cycle.
