What is Exercise Rehabilitation? 

Exercise rehabilitation plays an important role during recovery from pain or injury. The 
goal of rehabilitation is to help you recover faster while preventing unnecessary injury. 
Exercise rehabilitation will restore function and get you back to your everyday routine so 
you can enjoy life with the aches and pains.  
The purpose of exercise rehabilitation is to bring back full function after an injury. 
Exercise helps to improve flexibility, restore muscle strength, endurance and power. Our 
professional and accredited Exercise Physiologists will work with you and plan various 
exercises so that you can achieve these results. 
To successfully heal from an injury exercise rehabilitation is important, but often 
overlooked. Understanding your injury allows us to plan a successful exercise regimen 
for you to follow. Healing times vary depending on the person as well as the injury.

How Does Exercise Rehabilitation in Sydney Work? 

Exercise rehabilitation needs to begin soon after the acute phase and most exercises will be pain-free. To heal properly and return to your daily routines quickly and pain-free it is important to stick to the three following exercise rehabilitation stages: 


Early stage rehabilitation 

This stage will involve gentle exercises that will allow damaged tissue to heal properly.


Mid stage rehabilitation

The next stage introduces progressive loading. By gradually increasing the load exerted on muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones, there will be an increase of strength. 


Late stage rehabilitation  

The final stage involves functional exercises intended to improve your strength, flexibility and stamina. It works new tissues and gets the body ready for pain-free movement.
