What is Strength and Conditioning?

Strength and conditioning is a specialised approach that aims to enhance an individual’s physical abilities and performance, and reduce the risk of injuries. It combines resistance training, cardiovascular exercises, and flexibility protocols to improve muscular strength, endurance, power, speed, and agility. Utilising evidence-based practice, physiotherapists design tailored strength and conditioning programmes to meet the specific needs and goals of the patient, thereby facilitating improved functionality and faster rehabilitation.

The Different Aspects of Strength and Conditioning

Strength and conditioning encompasses targeted exercises and therapeutic activities to enhance muscular strength, endurance, flexibility, and coordination, thereby improving overall physical function and injury resilience. It adopts a comprehensive, patient-specific approach, focusing on maintaining and enhancing mobility, managing pain, mitigating the risk of injury recurrence, and fostering a sustainable, active lifestyle.

The Benefits of Strength and Conditioning

Strength and conditioning in physiotherapy play a crucial role in enhancing the body’s physical resilience, boosting muscle strength, flexibility, and balance, which are essential for injury prevention and faster recovery. Moreover, it helps improve overall physical performance, reduces the risk of chronic diseases, and aids in maintaining a healthy lifestyle, hence improving the patient’s quality of life.

Strength and Conditioning for Elderly:

One of the key factors to ageing gracefully is by staying physically active. This allows you to slow down the physiological process of ageing by reducing your risk of falls, improving your cardiovascular endurance, and bone mineral density, and preventing muscular atrophy.

Because the needs of every individual are different, our Strength and Conditioning programme targets just that, curating an individually tailored service to suit your needs. Whether it is going back to running, losing weight healthily, building bone strength, or starting a physically active lifestyle, we have the adequate equipment to assess your baseline and work towards improving them, thus achieving your goals.

It is an individually tailored service to suit your needs.
