Clinical pilates is a specialised exercise routine designed to improve core stability muscles. These programs are tailored to your individual muscle dysfunctions to target the problem areas to decrease pain and improve function. Especially effective for low back and neck pain as well as shoulder conditions. A one-on-one session is of utmost importance to grade your level of core strength and control and be certain you are correctly activating the right muscle groups.
One-on-one hydrotherapy sessions involves supervised treatment and specialised exercises in the heated pool (32°C). Hydrotherapy is beneficial for post-surgery (e.g. total knee replacement), assisting with injury rehabilitation, arthritis, exercising sore and painful joints, general fitness/ balance, and fracture recovery. The heated water encourages stiff muscles and joints to relax, whilst the buoyancy takes the load off the weight-bearing joints, allowing them to be exercised painlessly.
Bodyfix is now offering a Cardiac Rehabilitation program for members of the Charters Towers and surrounding communities that have had a cardiac episode or surgery. Our sessions are run by a fully Accredited Exercise Physiologist and are inclusive of safe exercise, lifestyle change education, and liaison with referring surgeons and GPs to keep the client’s entire care team informed of their progress. Depending on the severity of the event, episode, or surgery, cardiac rehabilitation could span over 6 or 12 weeks. At Bodyfix, we take an individual approach to care, rather than relying on the exact same program for every client, which we find maximises effectiveness. We have modern facilities, with a fully equipped and air-conditioned rehabilitation gym that is private and safe for clients who may find public gyms daunting.
A referral from a GP or Cardiologist is required prior to commencing this program.
