Services Overview

Exercise Therapy

Syn.ap.tic delivers intensive exercise-based therapy that focuses on the principles of neuro protection, neuro recovery and neuro plasticity. With the understanding that our brains can remap, we help forge connections that allow the brain and body to potentially reconnect and relearn functional movements.

Regardless of the neurological condition, improvements have been seen in strength, range of motion, endurance, and mobility thus enhancing overall quality of life. As people take part in active therapy, there is also a decrease in secondary complications such as obesity, osteoporosis, pain and an increase in health, wellness and independence.

Although the focus is exercise based therapy, Syn.ap.tic also offers access to complementary therapies to address any concurrent issues. All our therapists share in the philosophy of holistic health and a collaborative approach is taken to maximize results. They also have a specialized understanding of neurological conditions and work to deliver treatment in a neuro supportive manner.
