Got a physical challenge or concern holding you back?
Get on the path to regaining your strength, health—and your life. Check out the Marsh Brook Rehab Medical Exercise Program.
Maybe you have diabetes. Maybe weight issues are causing other problems, like high blood pressure. Or maybe you're recovering from an injury and need help getting back on track. When you join our Medical Exercise Program, one of our Certified Physical Therapists will conduct a thorough evaluation, including a body movement screening to determine if you have any orthopedic impairments and measure your body mass index (BMI).
From this evaluation, we'll develop a customized exercise program for your first few visits, which will serve as your "baseline." Then when you're ready, perhaps after several PT or OT appointments, we'll help you transition to the Center for Athletes (CFA).
At the CFA, you'll work directly with our team of Certified Athletic Trainers and Strength and Conditioning Specialists to achieve your goals. We'll also provide nutritional guidance as required to help you make positive life-long changes in your dietary habits. At three months, your physical therapist will reevaluate you to track your progress, suggesting changes as necessary.
Who should consider our Medical Exercise Program:
- Any child or adult with a medical or health concern.
- Anyone training to improve their overall fitness, but may not be able to train at another gym due to medical or health risks.
- Patients will need a referral from their PT or OT or from their specialist or PCP.
"When I decided to be part of the Medical Exercise Program, I had not exercised in years and was eating very poorly. Overall I did not have any medical issues, but I felt it was just a matter of time if I continued down the road I was on. "I was nervous in the beginning to share my weight and weaknesses, but Rob and Kim made me feel very comfortable and I did not feel judged by my condition. They have been compassionate and supportive through all of my challenges and helped me reach my goals. They gave me great suggestions and updated exercises when I needed to change things up to prevent myself from getting bored. They offered nutrition information and guidance throughout the process. They really laid the foundation for my current program. I now work out five days a week with a combination of strength training and cardiovascular exercise. I have lost 75 pounds so far and have so much more energy to enjoy all the things I want to do with my family and friends."
