Exercise is one part of a comprehensive treatment plan. Treatment plans also may include rest and relaxation, proper diet, medication, and instruction about proper use of joints and ways to conserve energy (that is, not waste motion) as well as the use of pain relief methods.

Read What Medical Professionals say:
As a pain management physician, I often hear patients describe how pain and illness take over their lives, affecting their ability to enjoy their usual hobbies or even maintain basic functions. I advise every one of my patients that exercise is essential to health and well-being. Staying strong and active, maintaining balance and endurance are all critically important regardless of the ailment. John provides this. I trust John with any of my patients, and would refer anyone to him without reservation.
I can attest to John’s expertise in the field partly because I attended graduate school with him studying the science of exercise. He not only knows the basics of exercise prescription, but has stayed current on the leading edge of research in this field. He employs skills learned in graduate school to critically examine the latest research on exercise and health and apply the findings to his clients.
One key benefit of working with John is his ability to provide results for his clients at home with minimal use of equipment. I tell my patients that, although Gyms are nice, they are not necessary to achieve your goals. John has the ability to develop a program for each client tailored to their specific needs without having to leave the home.
Lastly, I send people to John because I know he is a kind and compassionate man. He treats everyone with the respect they deserve. He can identify with the struggles many of his clients endure, and he not only provides advise for a better life . . . he lives it.
