Regain strength and condition following illness or surgery on our personalised reconditioning program

Different circumstances and medical illnesses can result in what’s known as “deconditioning”, or a decline in physical independence. Staying physically active can help improve and maintain independence, and enhance your quality of life.

Our reconditioning program is designed to strengthen muscles, maintain balance and improve overall physical function to improve your ability to return independently to your normal activities of daily living.
