What do our programs focus on?

When you get a rehab program, what does this typically look like? Usually it's a range of very particular exercises all focusing on one particular part of the body. Some of the issues with this is that they:

  • Fail to address the person as a whole, i.e. to look beyond one or two factors of the individual such as beyond the an injury or their underlying health issue.

  • Are hard to stick to because there is a lack of variability and typically are limited to a very controlled range of exercises. There is often a lack of options or creativity allowed for when doing the exercises.

  • Don't challenge the person well enough across a broad domain of areas. Typically the sole focus is one area such as bone health, heart health, tendon or muscle health.

At Prom Health, we aim to take into account injuries, current state of health and the like and come up with rehab &/or exercise programs that:

  • Provide structure but encourage you to be creative and experiment with exercises. As this is keep you focused, continues to challenge you mentally and gives you the control that you need to continue to enjoy the program.

  • Are challenging across a broad range of areas such as balance, core strength, power and cardiovascular fitness. A wide range of equipment will generally be used with the number of exercises typically exceeding 10.

  • Give you the ability to track and allow for regular progression of exercises becuase our osteopaths will reasses you at certain intervals.

Because the rehab space is quite private, you can feel comfortable experimenting with new types of exercises and equipment without onlookers.
