Physical activity and exercise prescription are effective in preventing and managing numerous chronic conditions, and is often more effective than medication in their management. Immobilisation (such as through prolonged bed rest, or plaster cast) can lead to bone density loss, muscle wasting and increased risk of injury. Physiotherapy can help to reduce this risk and optimise your recovery after injury.


As a part of our physiotherapy training, we are not only educated in injury diagnosis but also in exercise physiology, or the science of exercise. This enables us to not only assess and diagnose your injury but also to prescribe exercises appropriate to your age, injury or individual fitness level, as required. We can prescribe you with therapeutic exercises to facilitate your recovery after injury or surgery.


To optimise your rehabilitation or performance, your exercise routine will account for the type of injury, the stage of healing, and the functional requirements for the muscle and tendon, as well as your long-term goals. The exercises prescribed will usually be relatively simple, and do not require any special weights equipment, and can be performed safely at home.


Increasing muscular strength, muscular endurance, and muscular power is at the core of improving health and reducing the risk of injury. Regular exercise can also help maintain strength in the muscles, which makes daily tasks easier. It has also been shown to reduce stress and improve mood, maintain bone density and reduce fatigue. So it is important to have a suitable exercise programme you can perform regularly to ensure you remain as active as possible.
