Why?

Older individuals who live a sedentary lifestyle are at risk of sarcopenia, which is the decreased size and weakness of muscles. This can lead to a decrease in function, poor health and a higher risk for falls and injury. Studies have shown that older people who train 3x per week at home doing bodyweight exercises were able to increase muscle mass and prevent loss of functional strength

How often?

3 sessions per week (approx. 45mins per session) for 10weeks

How many?

Week 1: 2 sets of 12 repetitions

Week 2-4: 3 sets of 10 repetitions

Week 5-7: 4 sets of 10 repetitions

Week 8-10: same as 5-7 but the quicker pace

We can see you in our super clean clinic, or if you are self-isolating with your pain, injury or concern during these difficult times. Physiotherapy is considered an essential medical service and by helping people with their acute injury, chronic pain and rehab, we are able to take some pressure off our doctors and hospitals. If you are self-isolating or would prefer to stay home, we can offer you our Home Visit Service, our innovative Virtual Physio Consult or Telehealth Physio Consult. We will still deliver the same quality service to help you understand your problem and reach your health goal.
