Effective Treatment Strategies
We interview our patients to discuss their exercise, work, injury and medical history.
We make an assessment of physiological factors and body composition, such as flexibility, strength, cardiovascular fitness and work related activities such as manual handling.
We then create graded exercise programs to meet the needs of individual clients / patients with an aim of improving cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, flexibility and general well-being.
Interventions may include individual, group, class, home and pool based programs.
Our goal is to give our clients back the freedom of movement and an enhanced quality of life.
