Physiotherapist-led perfomance training

Physiotherapist-led performance training is a specialised approach that utilises the expertise of a physiotherapist to provide ongoing personal training. It begins with a high-level assessment by a physiotherapist, who then develops a personalised treatment plan.

What are the benefits?

Addresses Specific Areas of Concern:

Physiotherapist-led personal training is effective for targeting specific issues like postural imbalances, muscle weakness, and joint pain. It's suitable for individuals of all ages and fitness levels, helping to improve overall physical health, prevent injuries, and manage conditions like arthritis, osteoporosis, and chronic pain

 

Personalized Exercise Programs:

Physiotherapists use their expertise in anatomy and physiology to design exercise programs tailored to each client's needs, fitness level, medical history, and physical limitations. This ensures a more effective and safe exercise routine.

One-on-One Attention:

The training sessions provide individualised attention and guidance from the physiotherapist, ensuring proper form and technique. This also allows for the monitoring of progress and necessary adjustments to the program, ensuring continuous improvement towards the client's goals​​.

 

Rehabilitation and Injury Prevention:

Many physiotherapist-led exercise classes focus on rehabilitation of injuries, aiming to improve pain, function, and quality of life, and facilitating a return to work or sport. Additionally, developing physical fitness and functional capacity in non-injured individuals helps to reduce the risk of future injuries

Can I claim on health insurance?

No. If you're looking to claim with your health insurance you can either book a regular Physiotherapy consultation or an Exercise Physiology consultation.

What's the difference between Physiotherapist-led personal training and Exercise Physiology?

Physiotherapist-led personal training and Exercise Physiology both focus on using exercise to improve health and manage conditions, but they differ in their approach, scope of practice, and the types of conditions they typically manage.

While both professions use exercise as a tool for improving health, physiotherapist-led personal training is more focused on rehabilitation and the treatment of specific injuries or conditions. In contrast, exercise physiology generally focuses on the broader application of exercise for health improvement, chronic disease management, and performance enhancement. The choice between the two would depend on the individual's specific needs, whether they are recovering from an injury or looking to manage a chronic condition or improve overall health and fitness.
