This video is intended for gym / fitness  instructors who are supervising Redwood Physiotherapy patients for strength and conditioning programmes. It outlines all the exercises used in gym rehabilitation programmes for the injured person at Redwood Physiotherapy Clinic.

The video demonstrates the modifications to standard gym exercises that makes these exercises suitable to the injured population. This programme was utilised in Barry Donaldson’s PhD (2010) which studied the effects of a 6 month non-aggravating periodized gym strengthening programme versus usual surgical advise post Lumbar discectomy.
