Your personalised exercise program will be prescribed following an initial assessment to ensure the best outcomes possible.

Sessions can be conducted on a one-to-one basis, or you can choose to join one of our Core Performance groups or general Exercise Groups which are a lot of fun!

Core Performance

Core Performance is our small group (four people) exercise program with a focus on improving sporting performance.

Aimed at athletes of all abilities, these sessions involve balance, stability and strength training to improve performance, rehab injuries or assist with preventing injuries in the first place.

Core Performance classes involve the use of a range of equipment, including our Redcord suspension trainers and Clinical Pilates equipment.

Diabetes

Exercise is well-recognised as an important component of the management of both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Exercise plays a role in improving the way muscles respond to insulin, which can assist in the regulation of blood glucose levels. Exercise can also play an important role in the prevention of Type 2 diabetes.

Physiotas provides a Type 2 diabetes specific program, which also involves an educational component about how diabetes can be managed.

Patients with Type 2 diabetes may be eligible for Medicare-funded group based exercise sessions following a GP referral.

Parkinsons

Physiotas offers a Parkinson’s Disease Circuit Class, based on scientifically researched specialised exercises to assist with the effective management and treatment of Parkinson’s Disease.

Our exercise program uses a combination of physical and cognitive activities to drive the brains natural ability to rewire itself. The program not only improves motor symptoms, but drives neuroplastic change. It also promotes good exercise behaviour in a fun and social environment, giving people hope that there is life with Parkinson’s disease.

Suitability to join the class is based on a number of criteria, and will be determined following an assessment with an Accredited Exercise Physiologist.

Aquatic Physiotherapy

Aquatic Physiotherapy, or hydrotherapy, provides a relaxing and supportive environment that enables people with pain, post-surgical conditions, arthritis and mobility issues, to participate in supervised physical activity and functional rehabilitation.

Flotation and the subsequent increase in buoyancy enhances the effectiveness of exercising the spine, hips, knees and feet. The warmth and buoyancy of a water environment can be used to:

  • Reduce pain
  • Gradually progress weight bearing
  • Promote muscle relaxation
  • Increase range, movement and flexibility
  • Increase strength and endurance
  • Improve core stability and balance reactions

Before attending an Aquatic Physiotherapy class, you need to make an appointment with one of our Physiotherapists who will prepare a customised hydrotherapy program to suit your condition.

Exercise Groups

Our Exercise Classes offer a great solution for anyone looking to start or continue with an ongoing exercise program in a safe, supervised setting. Whether this be to assist with management of a chronic health condition, rehab an injury, or improve your general strength, fitness and health.

Following an initial assessment, a personalised exercise program will be prescribed for you by one of our Exercise Physiologists.  During the exercise class you will complete your individual program under the supervision of an Accredited Exercise Physiologist.
