The Benefits of Group Physio and Rehab

Posted on 6th July 2017 by

A recent study from Canada has highlighted the benefits of attending group physiotherapy, for patients following a total knee replacement.

The study demonstrated that patients who participated in group-based physiotherapy after joint replacement surgery achieved statistically and clinically important improvements in mobility and function, and with similar satisfaction levels as patients who receive one-on-one therapy.

It’s not only following surgery that people can benefit from physio and rehab in a group setting, anyone recovering from an injury can reap the rewards!

Having our group rehab sessions now in full swing at goPhysio – here’s some thoughts as to why group physio can have such a positive impact!

  • Connection with other people – Often, when you’ve had an injury or a recovering from surgery, it can be a very lonely time. In a group situation, you can gain positive connections with others, working towards a common goal and helping support each other.
  • Amalgamating social and exercise – Sharing an experience with others brings a social context to rehab. This can help increase enjoyment and motivation, key indicators in longer term success and outcomes.
  • Context – Everyone has days they may struggle or relapse slightly, but you’re not alone. Sharing stories or experiences with other people helps give context and perspective to your recovery and helps ‘normailse’ things. You will also get words of encouragement when others notice how well you are doing (when it may feel to you that progress is slow).
  • Commitment and motivation – Exercising as part of a group helps you commit to your goals, you are more likely to help support your peers and be motivated to continue.

And if group rehab isn’t your thing, we also offer a 1-2-1 rehab serviceĀ so you can be provided with a structured rehab programme to go and do in your own time at home or in the gym.

    I like how you mentioned that you can connect with other people during a group rehab session. It makes sense how you could create positive connections with others, and work towards a common goal while helping each other. My grandmother just had a total knee replacement surgery done. Checking into a group physiotherapy session could be a good option for her.

    Agreed. There’s a lot to be said about the power of group effort. We see the same kind of effects in group personal training as group physio sessions. People make more of an effort, are more motivated and also hold each other accountable.
