Lower Limb Rehabilitation Class

Class information

Due to social-distancing restrictions we are not currently able to provide in-person groups. We have recorded our exercise classes & provide live online classes to help you continue your physiotherapy independently.  

These resources are designed for current patients of the Locomotor service who have been screened and referred by one of our physiotherapists. All classes include an easier and more challenging version of each exercise so please consider which is most suitable for your level of ability.  

Before you start the class

Before starting any of our programmes we advise you to watch the following presentations:  

A Physiotherapist’s Guide to Exercise: Pain, Effort and Advice (15 minutes): 

The benefits of exercise and how much to do (4 minutes):  

What do I need for the exercise class?


  • A computer or phone connected to the internet.  
  • A bottle of water available and any medication you might need (e.g.  inhaler or GTN spray)  

  • Some videos encourage the use of extra resistance, so small weights (or bottles of water) or resistance band can be useful, if you have any. Please ensure this is in good condition before you use it.   

  • Some videos require a mat/towel, a chair or a small step.  

  • Comfortable loose clothing and trainers are recommended for all videos 


  • Space to exercise where you can see your device. You will need enough space to stretch your arms out and lie on the floor or a bed.   

  • To exercise safely, please ensure the area is clear of any trip hazards such as loose rugs or furniture
