For many people living with a neurological condition, or a life-limiting brain injury, the journey to recovery is physically and mentally challenging, life-changing and costly.
Evidence shows that exercise is key to helping to maintain levels of ability and can improve long-term progress.
Exercising on a regular basis improves mood, helps with weight loss, increases energy levels, aids sleep, reduces the risk of chronic disease and helps patients to relax. More and more people are seeking the expert, unique and bespoke support they need to exercise during recovery, but it’s not always clear how and where to access it.
Chris Wynne, from The Rehab Physio on the Wirral says: “People living with conditions like this struggle to locate and access the appropriate equipment to meet their needs and allow them to maintain their level of ability, and equally as important – their sense of wellbeing. Often, they don’t know where to turn, which can set them back in their recovery journey. By finding and accessing a specialised gym that suits their needs they can start to rebuild their lives.”
Specialist gyms like this are rare to find, but for many they provide much more than a facility for development – they are a safe and friendly environment where people can thrive and socialise with others who have similar injuries. For people who want to regain their life after injury or illness, this type of gym membership, tailored to individual needs, is often the catalyst for change.
The Rehab Physio is a specialist neurological rehab service, based on the Wirral, providing rehab services to Merseyside, Cheshire and North Wales. They offer exclusive gym memberships, with access to specialist equipment not available in standard gyms and fitness centres. There are no ties or contracts, allowing people to access the support at times when they need it the most.
