Why do exercise classes with a Physiotherapist?

When starting an exercise program it can be difficult to know what to do and how to do it safely, especially if you have pain or are recovering from an injury.

That’s where Physiotherapist run classes come in…


Clinical Exercise Therapy is a form of physical exercise supervised and designed by a Physiotherapist that focuses on posture, core stability, balance, control, strength, flexibility, and breathing. Each class has been specifically developed by one of our physiotherapists with exercises drawn from Pilates, Functional Strength and Conditioning, Yoga and physiotherapy rehabilitation principles. The goal is to manage injuries and chronic issues, prevent re-injury and improve overall health and wellbeing. The beauty of classes run by Physiotherapists is that exercises can be expertly modified to suit you and your needs, and you will be monitored closely to ensure you are doing the exercises correctly.


Exercise is an extremely important part of rehabilitation and management of chronic conditions. This is based on literature that demonstrates strong evidence to support the use of therapeutic exercise in the management of patients with injuries, particularly low back pain. Recent research advocates the retraining of the deep stabilising muscles for patients with low back pain. Clinical Exercise Therapy focuses on the retraining and recruitment of these stabilising muscles (core stability) as well as improving posture, strength and flexibility.



What are the benefits of Clinical Exercise Therapy?

There are numerous benefits to be gained from exercise with a physiotherapist.
Some of these include:

  • Improved posture and core stability
  • Increased muscular strength and flexibility
  • Prevention of injuries
  • Aiding rehabilitation
