Take the first step
Initial Exercise Physiology Assessment
Your Initial Exercise Physiology appointment involves a complete analysis of your injury or pain. This is extremely important as the biomechanical effects from one area may be contributing to another.
For example, a typical case of back pain would involve assessing the lumbar spine, pelvis and hips, as all these areas can contribute to back pain.
This comprehensive type of assessment is vital in determining the most appropriate treatment plan – with a goal for long term reduction of pain and recurring injuries.

Arthritis and Osteoporosis
- Improving the strength and control of the joints – Poor muscle strength has a major affect on pain and joint function.
- Reduce Joint Pain – Strengthening the muscles makes a huge impact on how much arthritis affects your life, in particular pain from knee arthritis often comes from poor knee cap control, not the arthritis itself, which can be managed with exercise
- Improved ability to Function – Limitations in what you can do is usually due to weakness, more than the arthritis itself. Strengthening the muscles can have a huge impact on your quality of life
Pre and Rehabilitation
Rehabilitation– Many of our clients have undergone very intrusive surgery and our program has enabled them to make a very impressive recovery as well as making a huge difference to the outcome of their surgery.
With good strength base prior to surgery, your rehabilitation can soley focus on the area directly affected by the surgery. This is why preparing your body for surgery can cut the recovery time to just weeks instead of months.
We are able to strengthen you from head to toe ( remember when you are in the hospital bed and inactive for several days , your muscles will degenerate). If you have decreased overall muscle strength before your surgery you will have a prolonged and painful recovery.
