EXERCISE PRESCRIPTION

Following on from our specific and detailed screening, whether it is for your chosen field of work or sport, a tailored exercise program is the most important component to help prevent injury and help you achieve your maximum potential.

Exercise is proven to be beneficial in the management of several musculoskeletal and health conditions.

Improper exercise prescription or incorrect technique can easily aggravate injuries. Physiotherapists have a strong understanding of injury pathology, are trained in identifying weaknesses or imbalances in the body, and can prescribe evidence-based individualised exercise programs specifically tailored to your complaint.

The physiotherapists at Redfern Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine routinely prescribe home exercises to complement your treatment and help improve your recovery from injury. These exercises aim to alleviate pain, correct maladaptive movement patterns and address the underlying causes of your injury.

In addition to prescribing home exercise programs, Redfern Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine also has a fully equipped rehabilitation gym onsite for injury rehabilitation and conditioning programs.
