How does clinical exercise & rehabilitation work?
Clinical exercise and rehabilitation programmes include prescribed exercises to retrain and restore optimal musculoskeletal function. Clinical exercise promotes healthy neuromuscular movement patterns that alleviate pain and prevent injury—while improving body awareness, muscle balance, movement control, strength and flexibility.
What is involved?
A physiotherapist will firstly provide a detailed assessment, which is followed by a co-ordinated management plan to ensure exercises are completed correctly and supervised at all times. With a review every 12 weeks.
Mum’s and Bub’s restore and wellness classes
A safe and supportive class to aid in restoration and recovery after having a baby. These classes have the added benefit of a social environment and educational components. A fantastic class that can start as early as 6 weeks postnatally.
Each participant is required to have an initial assessment with one of our expert women’s health physiotherapists to discuss and evaluate pelvic floor, perineal and scar recovery in addition to abdominal muscle separation. This very important assessment will lay down the foundation of the exercise programme to ensure a safe return to general activities and heavier gym-based programmes.
Is a referral required?
No referral is required to see a physiotherapist for an initial assessment or to attend a clinical exercise class.
Can I claim this service as an extra on my health insurance policy?
If you have Physiotherapy cover and attend an initial assessment with a physiotherapist your health fund should allow you to claim private health insurance rebates on your subsequent clinical exercise sessions.
