Over 50's Exercise Classes

Research shows that strength-based exercise programs designed specifically for the over 50’s can result in improvements in a variety or areas. These classes aim to achieve a reduction in falls, improved health, quality of life and fitness. Aubin Grove Physiotherapy runs circuit-based exercise classes 3 times per week.

Remedial Massage

Remedial massage therapy involves the assessment and treatment of soft tissue dysfunctions, to assist in rehabilitation, alleviation of pain and injury management. Massage therapy may also be beneficial as a preventative strategy to promote normal muscle contraction and reduce the likelihood of injury.

Remedial massage therapy aims to:

  • Restore and maintain normal muscle length
  • Reduce pain and muscle tension
  • Promote normal joint position and mobility
  • Increase the flow of blood to muscles
  • Promote the formation of healthy scar tissue

Each massage is tailored to suit individual needs, and will consist of an assessment (to identify musculoskeletal dysfunctions and determine the client’s health status) and appropriate hands on treatment.

Your remedial massage treatment may consist of a combination of the following techniques:

  • Swedish Massage
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Neuromuscular techniques (eg. trigger point therapy)
  • Myofascial release techniques
  • Muscle energy techniques
  • Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation
  • Positional release techniques
  • Mobilising techniques
