Physiotherapy Clinical Rehab is back at bounceREHAB!
What is it?
“Clinical Rehabilitation” means you are entering into a class that is governed by evidence based exercise prescription with an expert in the fields of human biomechanics, pain pathology and anatomy. In this environment you are surrounded by a bounceREHAB PHYSIOTHERAPIST at all times during class where you are supported, educated, monitored, progressed safely and empowered to reach your specific goals. Our focus is on restoring injured patients towards being active, healthy, fit, mentally confident and to normalize function following musculoskeletal pathology.
How does it work?
Classes will function to correct faulty movement patterns by eliminating muscle imbalances, facilitation neuromuscular re-education, and restoring proper joint mechanics. Group sizes are small (up to 6 only) to allow for specific programs for each person, catering to their capacity, age, stage of recovery and level of ability.
Who are classes for?
- Pre/post-operative patients such as hip/knee/ankle/shoulder/spinal surgery
- Musculoskeletal rehabilitation for lower back pain (disc bulge), neck pain and headaches
- Neurological disorders: stroke, parkinsons
- Sports injury such as hamstring tears, ankle sprains, shin splints
- Motor control and postural retraining for computer/office workers
- High performance athletes with ITB syndrome, tendinopathy, rotator cuff imbalances such as impingement, bursitis or tendon tearing
- Multifaceted or complex conditions such as fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome, arthritis, amputation
- Falls prevention
- Improving bone density and falls risk
- Conservative management to avoid potential surgery
- Chronic pain such as lower back or neck pain
- Injury prevention
- Many more (ask your bounceREHAB physiotherapist)
Is it for me?
Classes will be tailored for each individual and their goals. The individual, yet group setting, provides extremely budget friendly rehabilitation under the supervision of a physiotherapist. Participants will receive focused physiotherapy feedback, goals setting, monitoring and medical follow up where necessary. The physiotherapist will be able to liaison with GPs, allied health and medical specialists to ensure comprehensive team management. In addition to this, sessions are claimable under group physiotherapy codes though private health insurance. Members of bounceREHAB will have access to all Clinical Rehab classes as part of their gold/platinum/diamond membership or pass class, as well as use of the facilities outside class times.
Chronic Disease Management Plan
Some patients may be eligible for a Chronic Disease Management Plan (formally Enhanced Primary Care or EPC) which can provide up to 5 subsidised sessions of physiotherapy treatment/rehabilitation. This is for patients with chronic or terminal medical conditions, including patients with these conditions who require multidisciplinary, team-based care from a GP and at least two other health care providers.
A condition is considered chronic if present for six months or longer. The plans are designed for patients requiring a structured approach, including those requiring ongoing care from a multidisciplinary team. Eligibility is ultimately based on the clinical judgment of the GP, taking into account the patients medical condition and care needs, as well as the general guidance set out in the Medicare Benefits Scheme.
Electromyography device allowed real time auditory and visual feedback on muscle activation to optimise results for accelerated recovery.
Real Time Ultrasound (RTUS)
RTUS is used as an assessment and biofeedback tool by physiotherapists for various deep core stabilizing muscles.
Cuff Feedback – Craniocervical Flexion Test
This can assess the ability of the deep neck flexors. Patients with forward head posture and neck pain have been found to have decreased activation and endurance of the deep cervical flexors. They tend to overuse other muscles for postural maintenance, which leads to the commonly seen position of forward head posture – a position commonly seen in those who use computers frequently or engage in sedentary activity on a regular basis
Self mobilisation station
You will learn how to use all the gizmos and gadgets to loosen up those tight and restrictive points, including myofascial release, self trigger point therapy, foam rollers and more.
Classes run from Sunday to Thursday every week. Call to enquire or book into the mind body app
