After you have an injury your body may have lost conditioning and strength, making you vulnerable to re-injury. 

Exercise rehab is a step-by-step process that helps you regain your strength, mobility and balance. 

Here is a summary of an example of our approach:


Start to Move

Add easy movement to challenge the healing area, with support at first if necessary. Supervised exercise one on one with your physio or exercise therapist in the studio and home exercises. Therapeutic Movement phase.


Get Back to Everyday Movement

Make sure you are confident to use the previously injured or painful area in an optimal way during your daily, sports and dance activity. Functional Movement phase.

We offer low impact exercise and graded resistance training, so you can fully heal and then maintain and improve your physical fitness and muscle balance, in a safe, supportive environment.

At Activate our Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologist integrate Pilates training principles and exercises into their exercise rehabilitation for specific conditions. Traditional Pilates exercises may often need to be modified to allow for pain free graded injury rehab.

We facilitate your health fund claiming on the spot via our HICAPS system. Just bring your card with you. Claiming is available if you have Physiotherapy included in your health fund policy. Whilst we endeavour to have a Physiotherapist  or Exercise Physiologist on with a Pilates instructor in the exercise studio, supervising the sessions, we are unable to guarantee it in all cases. Most health funds require direct Physiotherapist’s supervision for claimable sessions. Please contact your health fund for all regulations and requirements regarding claiming and your individual policy.
