The program aims:

Reconditioning is a process that aims to maximise your recovery and restoration of independence after illness or injury.

Reconditioning is suitable for those who have been: Unwell, had any debilitating injury, have recently been bedridden, experienced reduced exercise capacity, limited in activities of daily living, or who are experiencing generalised weakness.

Who can benefit from this program?

  • Post-surgery: Following surgery, general reconditioning can help regain strength, improve flexibility, and restore mobility, facilitating a smoother recovery process.
  • Post-injury: Whether recovering from a sports injury, a fall, or any other physical trauma, general reconditioning can address muscle weakness, pain, and limitations in movement, promoting healing and a return to normal activities.
  • Hospitalisation: After a prolonged stay in the hospital, general reconditioning can help rebuild physical strength and endurance
  • De-conditioned individuals: For those who have been inactive for an extended period, general reconditioning offers a gradual and safe way to rebuild physical fitness, improve strength, and boost energy levels.
  • Older adults: Maintaining physical activity is essential for healthy aging, and general reconditioning programs can help older adults improve balance, strength, and flexibility, reducing the risk of falls and promoting independent living.
