Injury Rehab / Exercise Therapy

Doing particular exercises is often what leads to a successful outcome regarding a patients complaint/condition. Prescribing exercises is well back by research. Aims of exercises vary from person to person, however, they may be to:

  • Increase mobility / reduce stiffness

  • Increase strength / reduce weakness

  • Increase stability / reduce instability

  • Rectify faulty movement patterns

  • Improve balance

  • Enhance reflexes

At Prom Health, we are focused on functional exercise prescription, i.e. we prescribe exercises aimed at restoring or improving someone's ability to do particular activities, e.g. walk up stairs. Often isolated movements or muscles are targeted, much alike pilates. Soon after however, there is a focus on exercises that involve more complex movements and challenge the body in multiple ways.​

Examples of when rehab exercises may be needed are many but include:

  • Teenager with an ankle sprain

  • Pregnant woman with low back pain

  • Athlete with recurrent shoulder problems

  • Desk worker with poor core strength

  • Elderly person struggling to rise from a chair or balance issues
