If Kieser Geelong is good enough for the Cats, it’s good enough for the city, says manager Richard Wallace.
“We’ve got players from the Geelong Football Club using the facilities who have been referred in by their medical team,” the Belmont physio says.
“The next person to get on the machine might be an 80-year-old lady.”
Richard has worked in physiotherapy for 15 years, including a stint as sports physio and rehab manager at the Western Bulldogs.
He lived “on and off” in Geelong before moving permanently when Kieser opened its Newtown centre three years ago.
“There was a great opportunity to enjoy the coastal lifestyle that I love,” he says.
“We used to take some Bulldogs players into the South Melbourne Kieser centre and I could really see the difference it made to their strength and performance.”
Swiss boxer Werner Kieser invented the rehabilitation method in 1966 after using strength training to overcome his own injury.
Today, more than 600 members of all ages practice Kieser’s method at the Geelong centre, both to recover from injuries and to become fitter.
The program not only helps people get over injuries, it prevents them from happening again by strengthening weakened muscles.
“We’re particularly well known for our spinal program,” Richard says. “We’re getting a lot of GP, surgeon and specialist referrals to manage a huge range of injuries or surgeries.”
All instructors at the centre are qualified in physiotherapy, exercise physiology or exercise science, Richard says.
“We get a lot of Deakin University graduates come and work with us.”
