Am I healthy enough to use Fysio?
Fysio uses a screening assessment to find cases where a user should undergo additional medical evaluation before beginning their Fysio regimen. Passing the screening does not certify that a user is healthy enough to use the Fysio virtual exercise programs. All Fysio users should seek medical advice before beginning their exercise program. Always listen to your body and discontinue the Fysio program immediately if you experience pain or unusual discomfort. Always seek medical advice from your health care provider if you experience new or worsening pain or unusual discomfort.
