Exercise Rehabilitation

WHY EXERCISE REHABILITATION?

Exercise Rehabilitation is a holistic form of rehabilitation supervised by a physiotherapist which uses a variety of mediums to improve how you use your body. Through the use of Pilates based exercises & equipment, as well as strength & balance, these sessions will help improve your posture & movement. At WSC Exercise Rehabilitation is used, not only for rehabilitation, but also ‘prehab‘ (preventative rehab) for a variety of injuries and conditions to assist in correcting faulty movement patterns, muscle imbalance and strength and balance deficits. Our physiotherapists are Pilates accredited, experienced in exercise prescription and are skilled in the identification and correction of poor postural habits and imbalances.

Exercise Rehabilitation sessions are an individualised programme designed from the initial 1:1 sessions which progresses to a small group setting (no more than five) where each individual undertakes their personal program under the guidance of a physiotherapist. Review of the program happens periodically by the referring physiotherapist.
