At Melbourne Osteopathy Sports Injury Centre we have a fully equipped Pilates studio as well a variety of versatile equipment to assist your rehabilitation or fitness needs.
Exercise Rehabilitation develops a specific exercise program to assist in recovery from injuries, working towards a specific goal or improving fitness. It is suitable for persons of all ages and abilities. A full health and biomechanical assessment is performed to find the weaknesses that may be contributing to injuries or preventing a full recovery from an old injury.
A combination of Pilates and gym-based exercises may be used to develop strength and stability as well as specific stretching and self massage techniques for body awareness and active recovery.

The benefits of Exercise Rehabilitation are well documented. People who are physically active (moderate to high intensity activity 3 —5 times per week) are less likely to suffer from major illness and disease and will maintain strength and flexibility to protect joints from injury over the long term. People who are physically active are also able to better deal with stress and will gain sleep and mood benefits.
