The RBT programme is a cost-effective route to post-physiotherapy rehabilitation. This programme allows our patients who require ongoing strength and conditioning support post their physiotherapy treatment discharge. The focus is on restoring optimal function, which is the most important component in eliminating pain and preventing future injury. An injury will usually occur after the body has undergone an undue trauma, incorrect movement or a repetitive stress. It is important to understand that the entire body needs to move through a full range of motion. This full-body programme is led by our corrective exercise specialists and sports therapists and is the combination of exercise and manual therapy, proven to provide sustainable results.
Our therapists will produce a full bio-functional movement assessment, delivering a transparent clinical diagnosis. Following this an exercise program specific to patient needs and ability can be created. This specialised one-on-one exercise therapy programme, exclusive to Elevate Physiotherapy Clinic, is focused on reestablishing suitable strength in specific muscles and appropriate flexibility in others. Establishing proper joint motion allows us to actually teach people how to move correctly and thereby prevent injury.
It is important that the body is exercised in a functional manner in order to build appropriate muscle as well as joint strength and flexibility. This ensures that the nervous system is working properly and using all parts of the body in the appropriate way, with the correct muscles being employed at the right time.
Each patient’s exercise routine is progressively adjusted to meet their ever-changing needs and condition. Functional rehabilitation is vital to ensure that a patient maintains optimal function, which greatly reduces the reoccurrence of injury. Our therapy approach is active and functional. Research has shown that patients with pain improve faster with increased activity.
Additionally, scientific studies show that exercise is often more effective and lasting when combined with manual therapy. Our focus is to establish exercise specificity, which is dependent on the type of injury and the sport you wish to play.
