For Active Rehabilitation, if you attend 2-3 sessions per week, it would typically take 6-12 months to recover and see visible results.
After every 6 months, our physiotherapist and/or occupational therapist will reassess if an additional 6 months is required or if the senior can transit to Maintenance Exercise.
For Maintenance Exercise, seniors usually attend 1-2 sessions per week.
On average, each session lasts 45-60 minutes.
When you are in recovery, consistency is key. We strongly advise you to attend all sessions to hasten your recovery process, regain mobility and strength, alleviate pain, and improve the quality of life.
