Group Rehabilitation are small physiotherapy-led group classes incorporating rehabilitative exercise therapy with the traditional Pilates method. Rehab classes teach correct activation and control of muscles that stabilise the hip and knee, as well as building lower limb strength, pelvic/lumbar stability and core strength.
Specific conditioning for pre/post surgical, osteoarthritis and chronic pain
Clients learn modifications for exercise and everyday functional activities (eg. getting in and out of bed or the car) to ensure optimal function and minimal discomfort. Programs for rehab classes incorporate a combination of exercises using bodyweight, hand weights, resistance bands and balls as well as equipment such as the Pilates reformer.
