David Lloyd Maistone Gym


The major perk of being apart of David Lloyd Gym, is that we can offer our patients rehabilitation exercise using the gym equipment. This will allow our therapist to offer not only treatment but can be coupled with specific physical therapy after. This is only on offer for patients under our care plans.

How does the program work?


An exercise program can work in many ways. It can cater to improve flexibility, increase strength, improve mood, boost energy and control weight. A program allows you the patient to have a structured plan that focuses on their main goals. To provide structure to the exercise program, the F.I.T.T Principle to training will be used which stands for Frequency, Intensity, Time and Type. These main principles are regularly controlled to provide adequate adaptations to your strength, flexibility and weight to reach your main goals.

Why do you need an exercise program?


At SMSM Therapy a holistic approach to treatment is very important. An exercise program can enchance your recovery time when having chronic or acute pain. Exercising can strengthen weakened muscles after injury and stretching can allow the muscles to relax.

How does it work?


Once posture is analysed manually and through pictures, your practitioner will assess areas of asymmetry (imbalance) and provide a specific exercise to provide balance to the area. Body-weight, resistance bands, and gym equipment exercises are provided to our patients subject to care plan. You also can purchase your set of therabands at the clinic or they are free as part of your care plan.
