Neurological rehabilitation delivered as a circuit class offers supervised therapy in a group format, with a focus on improving performance of everyday movement tasks. Neuro rehab circuit classes can help improve arm and hand function, strength and posture, balance, navigating steps and stairs, turning in small spaces, walking indoors, or walking longer distances.
Neuro rehab classes differ from general exercise programmes. There is a distinct focus on intensive, repetitive practice, of functional tasks and exercises that are continually progressed as the individual’s function improves. Rehabilitation addresses components of strength, balance, flexibility and fitness while primarily focusing on specific training of everyday motor tasks.
Group training provides additional benefits by way of peer support and social interaction. There are benefits gained by watching other individuals completing similar tasks and learning from them. External feedback is a key factor in improving performance which will be provided by the Physiotherapist.
Walking, Balance & Strength – Neurological Rehabilitation Circuit Class
Neuro rehab classes cater for 6 to 8 participants. There are 8 to 10 exercise stations for participants to rotate through. The Physiotherapist tailors each exercise at each station to the individual to achieve the right challenge to ultimately improve walking, balance and strength. These classes can provide benefit if attended regularly or as an 8 or 12 week block.
