Exercise Prescription

Exercise prescription commonly refers to the specific plan of fitness-related activities that are designed for a specified purpose or goal, often developed by a rehabilitation specialist for a patient.

Our physiotherapy staff understand the specific and unique needs and interests of a patient. We recognise that the goal of exercise prescription should be focused on functional checkpoints and individualised time frames. 

Exercise prescription allows our team to develop strength and movement plans that are performed in conjunction with regular physiotherapy treatment sessions to support a patient’s treatment process. These exercise plans are tailored to individuals and allow specific modification where needed. 

Exercise prescriptions shouldn’t be confused with gym based rehabilitation programmes. They can often overlap, however, exercise prescription may include options such as home based exercises, return to running guidelines, or stretching advice for the workplace.
