Functional Strength Training

Studies show that people make larger gains in meaningful and repetitive functional tasks and we focus on getting people moving, encouraging them to start small and gradually increase what they do.

Functional Strength TrainingThe body gradually adapts to whatever demands are placed upon it so by practising targeted exercises it can become functionally stronger.

These demands may include more repetitions, at a greater intensity practised more frequently.

By designing purposeful exercises which are relevant to the individual’s functional goals they are more likely to stay motivated and therefore change.

Functional Strength TrainingAfter careful consideration of a person’s condition and their aims, we adapt or design exercises to target the task or combination of tasks which they are having difficulty with e.g balance. These exercises may need to be done in therapy and / or as ‘homework’ depending upon a variety of factors including initial ability, safety, motivation and assistance required.

By enabling people to confidently apply the skills acquired in therapy into their daily routine, this helps to support independent living and to reduce social isolation.
