General Conditioning Program

Franklin, NC Specialized Facility and EquipmentThis program is designed for patients with specific musculoskeletal problems that are aggravated by a lack of general fitness, flexibility and strength. Usually such problems result in deficits in functional ability and difficulty with activities of daily living.

For people in this situation, life’s tasks seem harder than they used to be - harder in fact than they need to be. This can often lead to a downward spiral as a person’s decreased activity level leads to further decreases in strength and flexibility…. and so it goes.

Our General Conditioning Program was designed to address these needs. It incorporates an Initial Examination of the patient’s overall conditioning, including function and balance measures.

Goals of the program are improved:

  • Strength
  • Flexibility and Range of Motion
  • Gait
  • Balance
  • Functional Ability

Available equipment includes:

  • Stairmaster
  • BAPS Board (balance board)
