Excellence in Physiotherapy and Pilates

PhysioXtra is an Authorised Power Plate Centre.

Developed to optimise the effects of ACCELERATION TRAINING™, the Power-Plate® machine is one of the most exciting technological advances in the fields of sports medicine, athletics, health and fitness.

ACCELERATION TRAINING has more than 30 years of practical and scientific research to support its efficacy. It has become increasingly clear that this training technique is valid, effective and will be used more and more.

 

Using the principles of ACCELERATION TRAINING, the Power-Plate® machine can help people to:

  • accelerate recovery from injury.

 

Individual Power Plate sessions of 1/2 an hour are:

  • programmed to suit your individual needs

No prior exercise experience is necessary.

At PhysioXtra the Power Plate is also integrated into our Physiotherapy and Pilates classes where appropriate.
