These are our entry level classes. They are aimed at people who are in the rehabilitation phase of an injury, who are new to Small Group Physiotherapy and those whose are still to master basic activation of their core muscles. It is essential to establish a good foundation of core control prior to progressing to more challenging exercises.
These classes are for clients who have established the technique of co-ordinating core muscle activation with breath control and movement. The difficulty level of exercises is increased to include whole body exercises in varied positions to further challenge the core stabilising muscles.
Our advanced classes are for experienced Small Group Physiotherapy clients who have mastered core activation and require high level challenging exercises to continue to build on their whole body strength, control and mobility. This class would be perfect for clients who want to improve their sports performance or as an adjunct to other training or exercise.
These classes are suited to Mums with Bubs from 6 weeks to 8 months and they are a fantastic way to recover from vaginal or caesarean delivery. The classes focus on rehabilitating the muscles involved in pregnancy and delivery and help prepare you for the demands of motherhood and returning to more demanding exercise. We strongly recommend you have a Post Natal Assessment with one of our physiotherapists to ensure correct activation of the Pelvic Floor and Transverse Abdominal muscles.

At Kerin Physio Co, we have a special interest in Women’s health, and offer specific post natal Small Group Physiotherapy classes, designed for the unique needs of a post natal body. As Physiotherapists, we understand the common pathologies relating to your post natal body. Therefore we plan and structure our classes accordingly, to not only improve strength and endurance but also to improve and prevent any injuries you may be experiencing. For post natal mums, the classes help with labour recovery, reduce and repair stomach muscle separation, strengthen the pelvic floor and are tailored towards the physical demands of being a new mum, such as feeding, changing nappies, baby carrying etc.
For pre natal mums, the focus of these classes is to keep your core strong for labour, to strengthen your entire body, to help prevent or reduce back pain and pelvic instability, as well as maintaining strength and endurance in your pelvic floor. There is also a large educational component in our Pregnancy classes as we equip you with skills and knowledge regarding your body to aid you during child birth and beyond.
