Exciting news as our Clinical Rehab program is re-opening across our clinics.

What is Clinical Rehab?

Clinical Rehab is an exercise class using a mixture of specialised Pilates equipment, weights and gym equipment. If you are new to Symmetry Physiotherapy or Clinical Rehab, a physiotherapist first performs a thorough clinical examination to determine your diagnosis and body parts to target. They then develop a program is with exercises selected especially for you based on your goals. They also supervise the class to ensure you are performing them with the correct technique. Under current guidelines our classes sizes will be a maximum of 3 clients to 1 therapist, with each client performing their own individual routine at their own level.

Why should I do Clinical Rehab?

Clinical Rehab is great because there is such a variety of exercises. There are gentle exercises for those just recovering from surgery, or the older population. However, don’t think these sessions are easy!! These top level exercises can be challenging for those who really want to improve their strength and endurance! The exercises focus on building strength and improving functional capacity If you have a strong stable base (i.e. your core) then doing other activities whether it be running, lifting your kids, doing the gardening—all become easier. There are a range of exercises that focus on all other muscle groups too.

Clinical rehab can be a great addition to your rehabilitation program.
