How does clinical exercise work?
Physio treatments and rehab programs often include clinical exercise to retrain and restore optimal musculoskeletal function. Clinical exercise promotes healthy neuromuscular movement patterns that alleviate pain and prevent injury—while improving body awareness, muscle balance, movement control, strength and flexibility.
What else do you need to know about clinical exercise?
Prior to commencing a clinical exercise plan, you will require a physio assessment to discuss your goals, identify a program and to teach you how to activate your muscles properly.
Is a referral required?
No referral is required to see a physio for an initial assessment or to attend a clinical exercise class.
Can I claim this service as an extra on my health insurance policy?
Attending an initial assessment with a physio could allow you to claim private health insurance rebates on your subsequent clinical exercise sessions.
