Gym Rehabilitation Treatment in Kalgoorlie

Strength and Conditioning

Graded gym rehabilitation and conditioning programmes are essential for individuals suffering from sports or work injuries. Gym rehabilitation can also assist those with chronic diseases (i.e. heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis, obesity) who may need direction in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

These are intensive, goal-oriented conditioning programs designed to restore neuromuscular and musculoskeletal function including strength, power, endurance, joint mobility, range of motion, motor control, cardiovascular endurance and functional abilities. The primary objective of these programs is to restore physical capacity and function to enable the injured client to return to his or her pre-injury job or activities.

When designing exercise based and conditioning programs, our physiotherapists will consider the pathology of an injury or chronic disease and the current assessment findings as well as any physiological or postoperative restrictions which need to be adhered to. A comprehensive, individualised program will then be designed and delivered to facilitate a return to physical activity. Graded exposure and safe implementation of exercises will promote healing and functional conditioning while reducing the potential risks of physical activity particularly for those clients with chronic and complex conditions.

Benefits of the programs:
  • Individualised and specific
  • Supervised sessions to ensure exercises are undertaken correctly to avoid aggravation of symptoms / injuries and that clients feel capable and confident to perform their program independently
  • Periodic monitoring and progression to ensure rehabilitation goals are achieved and function is restored
  • Exposure to exercise is progressive and graded to ensure tissue and work capacity are optimised
  • Programs are based on best evidence
  • Active and ongoing education about injury, exercise and management strategies to empower clients to self-management both their injury and lifestyle
  • Goal focused to optimise function, participation, return to work, sport and activities of daily living.
  • Gym-based exercise rehabilitation and work conditioning programs are undertaken at all the local modern fitness facilities in Kalgoorlie and Kambalda.
