The idea behind “Group Therapy” is for our clients to exercise in small groups, under the guidance of a physical therapist, thereby making physiotherapy fun, motivating, and economical.
Here are some of the questions one may have about “Group Therapy”:
1. I can exercise at my regular gym or at home. Why go to a physiotherapy clinic for a fitness class?
Physiotherapists study the structures & mechanics of the human body, as well as, Exercise Physiology for at least 4 years. So, their in-depth knowledge of sports performance and endurance would enable them to design highly-suitable exercise-plans. In comparison, most gym trainers would have only completed a few short, certificate-level courses.
Therefore, exercising under the skilled guidance of a physiotherapist would make your fitness goals more sustainable and safer than a run-of-the-mill gym trainer.
2. What are the benefits of group-exercise?
- It is motivating
Exercising with people who have similar goals and who encourage each other, can be extremely motivating.
- Makes you accountable in your fitness journey
Have you ever said to yourself, “I know I should be going to the gym, but…” or “I know I should be doing my physiotherapy exercises, but…”
Being part of a fitness-class is a great way to increase your internal drive to exercise. This is because you become accountable to your classmates, instructor, and most importantly, to yourself to show up each week and participate whole-heartedly.
- Benefit from expert supervision
When people exercise on their own, they are likely to do so incorrectly or skip the ones that they don’t particularly enjoy.
In our small-group setting, the physiotherapist would tailor the class to include the most beneficial and relevant exercises for that specific group. Also, he/she would be providing supervision at all times, so that the correct techniques are used.
3. Where would these group exercise sessions take place?
The exercise sessions would be conducted at our sports and rehab gym, known as “Trans-Form”. It is a 700sft fully-equipped gym attached to Jaya Physio Clinics’ Madhapur branch.
