Exercise Rehab

Exercise Rehabilitation

Exercise Rehabilitation aims to restore full functional capacity of an injured person. Traditionally, this is done through a therapeutic exercise program that includes exercise progressions that are graduated toward the functional goals of the individual.

Errol Street Physiotherapy Rehabilitation program involves:

  • Thorough individualised assessment by an Exercise Rehabilitation Physiotherapist.

  • Summary & explanation of main findings

  • Collaborative goal setting (Physio/patient)

  • Formation of an individualised rehabilitation program

  • Initial 1:1 rehabilitation sessions, followed by integration into a rehabilitation class of 2-4 people.

The program time frame will vary, depending on specifics of the injury & individual progress. There will be ‘before & after’ measurements taken for each individual to ensure progress and goal setting is achieved.

This program is most appropriate for people suffering long term, chronic or recurrent injuries impacting their ability to achieve occupational, sporting or leisure activities. Common conditions managed include:

  • Rehab post ACL reconstructive surgery

  • Achilles Tendinopathy

  • Chronic Lower Back Pain

  • Shoulder Pain with Weights Training

Mums and Bubs Exercise Rehab

These small group classes are specific to the needs of women post partum. The classes will help recent mothers regain core muscle function, thereby reducing associated pain & dysfunction that occurs as a result of the pregnancy & birthing process. This is an individualised program, conducted in a group of 3-4 participants by a skilled exercise rehab physiotherapist. 

The program consists of a combination of floor-based, resistance and pilates exercises. With the added comfort of being an arms reach to your new bundle of joy, the baby is incorporated into some exercises.  Call the clinic to book an initial 1:1 introductory session, and your exercise rehab physiotherapist will guide you & your baby along the correct pathway. And there's the added benefit of some socializing with other Mothers going through similar experiences.
