New members are required to attend a half hour assessment at the practice prior to joining the class. To get the most out of the class, it is important that you have a good understanding of what the basic underlying core muscle contractions involve. These can be very subtle and at times some independent practice is needed prior to being safe to join a group class.
During the assessment our physios will take a brief history of previous injury or issues and check your movement patterns to assess your individual areas of weakness. We will also use real time ultrasound to scan your core muscles and ensure that you are able to engage them appropriately. You can see the muscles working on the screen and we will teach you a few of the basic exercises so that when you join the class it is not all new or confusing to you.
Occasionally under special circumstances, we may allow you to join the class prior to the assessment being undertaken, however you will be required to be assessed by one of our physios prior to subsequent sessions. Please contact the practice on 9976 3540 to enquire or book an assessment.
