Remedial Exercise

The goal of any remedial exercise program is the achievement of symptom free movement and function.

For a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) to effectively administer a remedial exercise program to a client, the RMT must know the principles and effects of exercise on the muscular, skeletal, respiratory, cardiovascular, and nervous systems.  Also, the RMT must be able to provide a functional assessment of the client and know the interrelationships of the anatomy and kinesiology of the part, and understand the state of the injury, disease, or surgical procedure and its potential rate of recovery, complications, precautions, and contraindications.The goals of remedial exercise include the prevention of dysfunction as well as the development, improvement, restoration, or maintenance of:

  • strength
  • endurance and cardiovascular fitness
  • mobility and flexibility
  • stability
  • relaxation
  • coordination, balance, and functional skills
