Community Physical Therapy

Community Physical Therapy at ExercisAbilities specializes in working with individuals with physical challenges and complex medical conditions that are causing limitation in movement, difficult ability to live, work and play in the home or community, unsafe balance leading to falls, uncontrolled pain, and overall limited physical activity and function that is less than desired or possible.  Improved movement quality, decreased pain, and safe independent living is possible with the right help in the setting of declining abilities.  We know your challenges and can safely lead you to a healthier, happier, and more independent life.

Inclusive Personal Training

Our personal trainers are therapeutic health specialists.  They are also health coaches, certified inclusive fitness trainers, and therapeutic recreation & adaptive sports therapists. EA personal trainers will help you reach your long-term health and strength goals in the safest and most effective manner. They are an essential part of your wellness and rehab recovery team.  At EA, your care will include both physical therapy AND therapeutic health because we know you will not reach your goals with PT along.  For true return to you and to meet your goals, you must address both your physical AND healthy lifestyle issues. Find out how our personal trainers can help you reach your goals.

Individual and Group Health Coaching

At ExercisAbilities, we understand you need support to improve and maintain your healthy life choices. We are committed to address all areas that impact health achievement.  Health coaches provide essential support to you in making your physical recovery journey an optimal success.  They will assist you to think holistically about your rehab needs and health status.  They will assist you to set small, achievable goals that stretch far beyond your physical therapy program.  By including health coaching in our program along with the PT and specialized personal training and fitness, you will see improvements like you have never seen with any other program you may have tried in the past.
