Diabetes & Exercise Program
The Diabetes & Exercise Program is designed to help those with diabetes safely transition into a personalized exercise program.
This program targets patients who have health risks secondary to a deconditioned health status due to pain or weakness which interferes with their ability to function optimally.
The overall goal of the Diabetes & Exercise Program is to educate diabetic patients in safe independent exercise and to prevent a serious and long-standing injury caused by improper exercise technique.
Patients will receive an evaluation of muscle strength, flexibility and overall function and are provided with a customized home exercise program they can also use at the gym.
Your physician will receive documentation of the program results and will be advised if additional treatment, such as physical therapy or occupational therapy, is needed.
