Finding a Cerebral Palsy Exercise Program That Works For You

 

For individuals living with cerebral palsy, an exercise program is not usually a part of normal life — but there are good reasons to consider adding one to your routine. Exercise can provide health benefits for individuals of all ages and abilities, but these activities can seem out of reach at times, even for those with mild cerebral palsy. Just because you aren't bench pressing a hundred kilos at the gym every week doesn't mean exercise is off the table. 

 

At Enable Exercise, we understand the mechanics behind how exercise can help cerebral palsy patients to strengthen areas of the body while developing functional abilities for improving everyday quality of life. Our young and passionate physiotherapists and exercise physiologist  are ready to help make a plan that works for you. How can we help? Consider

Tips for Getting More Value Out of Personal Training for Cerebral Palsy Patients

Investing in this type of care is an important decision, and one that we agree should be made with care. Ensuring that our clients have a valuable experience with their exercises is important to our team. Keep the following ideas in mind to make the most of our abilities:

  • Pursue your therapy in the environment most comfortable to you. When you feel confident enough to engage with your therapist fully, we do our best work. Whether that's at home or our premises is up to you.

  • Don't be afraid to ask questions, and always strive to engage with your training. We're always ready with an answer, especially when you want to know more about why certain exercises are a good idea.

  • Ask about what you can do at home on your own time. Every day is an opportunity for improvement.

The Importance of Exercises for Mild Cerebral Palsy

 

Why is exercise an essential component of therapy for cerebral palsy, especially more mild cases? Keeping in mind that every case is unique, and individuals may see improvements in different areas, there are several reasons to consider making exercise a bigger part of your life. They include:

  • The ability to maintain or improve flexibility, enabling a smoother and fuller range of motion.

  • Developing strength in weaker parts of the body to enable more prolonged periods of activity.

  • Accessing the overall health benefits of exercise, from better sleep to improved endurance. It's always a good idea to have more physical activity in your life.

At Enable Exercise, we want to enable even more than merely your ability to develop your body — we aim to help open doors for your future.
