The East Bentleigh Rehabilitation gym is another way that we have improved the services that we can offer to our patients at SSPC. The gym is fully equipped for all SSPC patients who need extensive rehab exercises to return to 100% health. You are now able to get a program designed and monitored by a physiotherapist specific to your needs. Our rehab gym saves paying high prices for a gym membership at a big chain and receiving exercises that don’t particularly suit your specific requirements.
Yes. A session involving physiotherapy and then a rehab session in the gym working on exercises designed by your physiotherapist will cost an extra $20 on top of your consultation fee.
Yes, the rehab gym is specifically for SSPC patients. Anyone who is not a current patient will require a prior appointment to see one of our Physiotherapists and have a Gym Assessment to determine a safe and effective exercise program for you.
Your program is written and demonstrated by a physiotherapist and then any physio or or exercise physiologist in the gym will be available to help you out if you have questions. The rehab area is not always supervised so you will often complete your session unsupervised, however there are ALWAYS physiotherapists in the immediately adjacent treatment areas who can answer any queries or questions you have. If in doubt you should always drop down to the reception desk and ask for assistance.
At Parkdale there is a smaller rehabilitation area designed for within treatment rehabilitation only so all your Rehab needs can be attended to.
