Gym-based exercise programSpeed up your recovery
Is your workplace set up to accommodate the specific requirements of an injured worker? How will your employee cope when they return to work?
Exercise therapy has been proven to be very effective in enabling an injured worker to recover quickly from injuries and return to work sooner.
Whether it be back pain, a sprained ankle or torn muscle, specific exercises provided by a qualified Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist can contribute significantly to their rehabilitation.
How it works
Exercise therapy empowers the individual to take control of their recovery without being heavily reliant on a physiotherapist.
Exercise helps to increase energy and range of motion, strengthen the muscles, circulate blood flow and improve general cardiovascular health.
Following an initial assessment, the individual will be shown how to safely carry out exercises specifically designed to target their rehabilitation needs. Some examples of exercises include:
- Core stability for back related injuries
- Strengthening exercises – balancing and different ranges of movement
- Series of stretches specific to the injury
We will provide ongoing support by monitoring progress and adapting the exercise program according to the individual’s needs.
The length of a gym-based program varies depending on the extent of the injury and the individual’s ability to self manage the program and exercises. However, 8 to 12 weeks is generally recommended to achieve successful return to work outcomes.
