Exercise Rehabilitation

What is Exercise Rehabilitation?

Exercise rehabilitation aims to alleviate pain, speed up recovery time, and restore muscle function that was lost due to an injury. By sticking to a professionally-created exercise plan following an injury, there is a much greater chance of the injury healing properly which means you can get back to normal and doing the things you love without pain.

Who Can Benefit From This?

Exercise rehabilitation is suitable for all ages and sizes and can treat a host of injuries such as knee pain, back pain, shin splints, ankle sprains & many more. It is important to start rehabilitation shortly after the injury has occurred, and after the inflammatory stage, for the best chance of the injury successfully being healed and restored to normal function. Our contact details are at the bottom of this page, please feel free to contact us if you would like to know whether you could benefit from Exercise Rehabilitation.

What Should I Expect During My First Session?

Firstly, the physiotherapist will greet you warmly and listen to you in order to understand what your specific issue is; the history of the issue will also need to be learned. Secondly, a thorough examination will be performed in order to assess the full extent of your injury. Once the injury has been diagnosed, they will explain to you what the issue really is and help you understand what factors may have contributed to the development of the injury.

Afterwards, the physiotherapist will work with you to set realistic goals, advise you of a realistic time-frame to achieve these goals, and get you started on the path to recovery with a guided exercise plan tailored to your specific needs. Our main goal is to alleviate your pain as soon as possible so your physiotherapist may offer you a combination of massage, manipulation, Dry-Needling (https://subiaco-physiotherapy.com.au/services/dry-needling/), taping painful regions to offload pain-related pressure.

What Risks Are Involved With Exercise Rehabilitation?

As with any therapy, some risks may be involved. However, in the vast majority of cases, the risks are unlikely and are minor. The most common risks are post exercise soreness or a very mild exacerbation of your condition, however we work very hard to prescribe a suitable dosage in your first session If you have a more specific issue which has more significant risks involved, your physiotherapist will talk you through the likelihood of each risk and advise you how to minimise the possibility of further injury.

Please be aware that some exercises which were prescribed to someone else may not be beneficial for you. In fact, some exercises may further your injury and increase your pain. Please consult with your physiotherapist before attempting any exercises to confirm whether they are suitable for your current condition.

What Should I Wear?

To ensure the physiotherapist can properly examine your condition and identify your range of motion, they need to see how your body moves. We advise form-fitting and comfortable clothes to make this possible. There are many styles to choose from to personalise your exercise attire to help you feel more at ease.
