Use our gym for FREE as part of your consultation

physio supervised gym program

At Sport & Spinal Physiotherapy, we have one of the best fully equipped gymnasiums in any health clinic within Canberra. There is no need to have your therapy at one location and then do your gym-based rehabilitation exercises at another, because we have it all right here at our clinic. Doing strength exercises in the gym provides a great adjunct to treatment and as part of your consultation you can use it for FREE.

Towards the end of your ‘phase based rehab system’, our physios will advise you on strategies to keep the pain away so that you receive a lasting solution. In many cases, this will mean doing some exercises in a gym setting to improve fitness, flexibility, athletic performance, core strength and muscle gain.

We take the guesswork out of your gym rehabilitation and this eliminates concerns some clients may have about going to the gym on their own and not knowing if they are doing the right type of exercises for their recovery. Our physios are experts at gym rehab because we understand the pathology behind your diagnosis and the right type of gym exercises to restore full function. We also practice what we preach and engage in our own gym work for health and fitness.

Depending on your injury and confidence with gym exercises, our physiotherapists will determine the level of supervision you require to continue your transitional rehabilitation program within our gymnasium. Our gym-based rehabilitation is designed to help you become independent with your exercise program – hence there are no joining fees.
