Clinical Rehabilitation at bounceREHAB
Clinical Rehabilitation classes at bounceREHAB are a physio-led small-group session designed to help people who are moderately injured and/or need pre or post surgical rehabilitation. Patients will work through an individualised program designed in consultation with a bounceREHAB physiotherapist prior to commencement. Think of it as a modern, dynamic and cost effective outpatients rehab class.
We use exercise based treatment to manage a plethora of common, chronic or complex conditions in a safe and evidence based practice.

What should I expect?
These classes are much slower than any of our other exercise classes. You are expected to need closer physiotherapy assistance to guide you through your individualised program.
It is important to manage any potential day to day changes in your symptoms or function. You will work through your pre-determined individualised program with a rotating physiotherapist who will monitor and adjust your management plan when required.
