Rehabilitation Personal Training has been designed for people who have been treated by physiotherapists, chiropractors and osteopaths and are looking for a safe route back to exercise. If you have experienced back pain or any other joint pain, you'll know how debilitating it can be. So, we designed our rehabilitation personal training programmes to help you discover issues with how you move and correct them before they become serious problems.
Our strategy is to assess movement quality first, to see where your problem areas are. This allows us to design a programme that is bespoke to your needs. We then teach you to properly use your core muscles, a common problem area for many of our clients. We then build on this strong foundation, good quality movement that allows you to walk, run and play sports with mobility, stability, strength and confidence
So how do you know if this is the right programme for you? Here’s our 5 key indicators that rehabilitation personal training is for you.
1. You have suffered with joint or back pain
We know how back pain or join issues can make moving, standing or even sitting a problem. We can help you to find the right exercises to strengthen your core to support your back, and build stability to protect your joints. Training your body to support you and move correctly is fundamental to maintaining a healthy spine and joints.
2. You want to know what exercises are right for you
There is a wealth of information available these days on what exercises you should do and what to avoid. The problem is knowing what advice you should follow. The real issue is it's all generic advice and not tailored to you. We use movement assessments to see exactly how your body is functioning and the design your exercise plan for your specific needs.
3. You are unsure that you are doing the right thing in the gym
Even when you know what exercises you should be doing you may worry you are not doing them properly. That is why so many physiotherapists, chiropractors and osteopaths send their clients to see us, to ensure they are exercising safely and effectively. We guide you through all the exercises that are right for you while giving you tips on how to self-correct when training alone.
4. You have had previous injuries or surgery
A lot of people come to see us because they have previously been injured or had surgery and don't feel as strong as they used to. We have worked with a lot of clients who have had treatment after injuries from skiing or other sports. They now need to build back up their strength, stability and movement patterns so that they can get back to doing what they love.
5. You are currently receiving treatment from a manual therapist
We work alongside your physiotherapist, chiropractor or osteopath to get your body moving the way it should. We have close working relationships with many manual therapists and liaise with them to ensure you only do the exercises they are happy with.
