How can it help you?

The Flex Health Functional Gym offers a wide variety of physiotherapy equipment which can all contribute to the rehabilitation of a number of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. Depending on the reason you require physiotherapy, you will find different benefits from the equipment that we have available. The exercise assisted hoist, for example, ensures that a patient can practice gait training and ambulation without the risk of falling, whilst the VertiMax machine stimulates your muscles to strengthen and produce more power as you target a specific muscle group. You may also use the gym as part of a regular personal training programme, as it is ideal for those looking to perform sport to optimal levels with reduced risk of injury.

After referral, you will be invited to an assessment where one of our team of experienced rehabilitators will decide on a personalised treatment plan. As well as manual therapy and sometimes acupuncture, this will involve access to our functional gym, where specific equipment will be cited to best support the client specific outcomes in your rehab plan. At Flex Health, we prioritise functional movement so that, regardless of your injury or condition, you can maintain a level of independence which allows you to continue in some respect with the activities that are essential to your day to day life.
