Unfortunately injuries do occur, they are a natural part of an active lifestyle. But its how we address our recovery that will determine our level of function after the injury has occurred. Rehabilitation is the process to regain full function following injury. It involves restoring strength, flexibility, endurance and power back to our body. Rehabilitation is as important as treatment following an injury but unfortunately is often overlooked.
The staff at Equilibrium Sports and Spinal clinic in Glen Iris are highly trained to assess your weakness following an injury or surgical procedure and develop a rehabilitation plan to get you back to full function as quickly and safely as possible. Used in conjunction with hands on therapy (if required), each programme is tailored specifically to you as the individual, and progresses as you regain your health, strength and return to normal function. We work as a team in constant communication with your other therapists, be they Orthopaedic surgeon, Personal Trainer or General Practitioner. We have one goal in mind – your complete health and restoring your bodies Equilibrium.
