Book an appointment today, to see how this individualised treatment can help you.
Our ESSA accredited Cairns exercise physiologist designs exercise programmes to support patients with chronic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes or asthma, as well as those recovering from injuries or surgery. The first step is a comprehensive assessment using exercise tests, movement assessments and interview. Health fund rebates are available and NDIS, Medicare and DVA clients are all eligible for this service when you choose Wellness Embodied.
Injuries, poor posture and long term pain lead to poor movement patterns, balance and significant muscle imbalance. Wellness Embodied’s Physiotherapists, together with our exercise physiologist, know that rehabilitation of these issues is crucial for healing and prevention of future pain and issues. At the Rehab Room we combine equipment and expertise in small number (max 5) classes, lasting 55 minutes.

Appropriate rehabilitation of injured areas lowers the rate of future injury recurrence. Muscle imbalances and movement dysfunctions are apparent in most long-term pain conditions. Conservative rehabilitation (ie. EXERCISE) can be just as useful as surgery in treatment of many conditions, including many rotator cuff tears, knee injuries and more.
Our Expert Advice
Physiotherapists, including our expert team at Wellness Embodied, are best placed for advising you on your specific exercise and rehabilitation needs (as well as injury prevention) due to our high-level knowledge of the entire musculoskeletal system. Humans are complex creatures. Pain can be a result of imbalance in many systems- muscle, joint, bone, ligament, tendon, nerve, fascia, dura, autonomic system and more. At Wellness Embodied Cairns, our physiotherapy team prides themselves on our whole-person approach to assess, treat and rehabilitate.
All physiotherapists at Wellness Embodied Cairns are trained in Movement Based Classification and Treatment (MBCT). This is a physiotherapist specific Clinical Pilates modality which involves an accurate physiotherapy assessment to determine the appropriate direction of movement to rehabilitate. Our physiotherapists then test several simple, controlled rehabilitation exercises, before retesting to see if there is a difference. This simple process gives you confidence in our approach as well as allowing us to constantly assess the benefits of our exercise regime.
