Water Therapy Class
Exercising in the water greatly reduces stress on the joints and is extremely effective in the treatment of whiplash, low back & spinal pain and the deconditioned patient. This program was pioneered by Dr. Caroline Quartly & Lindsey MacFee, and will be held at Fitness Connection which is located on South Church Street.

Lower Limb Rehabilitation Class
The class is aimed at furthering your rehabilitation post injury and/or surgery in order to gain the most from your recovery and prepare you for your normal level of activity post initial healing and recovery within the clinic.
Lower limb rehabilitation classes are closely supervised classes by one of our physiotherapists in order to train your strength, balance and joint awareness. The class is aimed at furthering your rehabilitation post injury and/or surgery in order to gain the most from your recovery and prepare you for your normal level of activity post initial healing and recovery within the clinic.
The classes target high end rehabilitation to get you ready to go back to sport. They aim to provide a transition from the clinic to the sporting arena to give you confidence and strength to aid prevention of further injury and to enhance your performance at all levels of competition.
Small groups of no more than 4 people work with the physiotherapist over one hour. You will have your own, unique set of exercises prescribed under the guidance of the physiotherapist to challenge and progress you according to your injury. The facilities involve the use of trampolines and the sprung loaded floor and will include both dynamic and static exercises to challenge power and balance.
Classes are held at "Motions Unlimited" on Mondays and Wednesdays at 12:30 pm.
Motion's provide both showers and changing facilities for your convenience over the lunchtime sessions. The classes at Motions are a great way to test your recovery by performing a wide variety of exercises whilst in a safe environment. The coaching, equipment and venue meant that very specific exercises could be conducted in a controlled manner assisting in quicker recovery.
