Kidney (renal) rehabilitation physiotherapy service

Exercise for patients with kidney disease

The kidney (renal) rehabilitation physiotherapy service at Guy's and St Thomas' helps patients with kidney disease start exercising regularly. They also help patients who are on dialysis exercise during their dialysis treatment.

  • Renal rehabilitation class – a 12-week programme of exercise for those with kidney disease. By the end of the programme you should feel informed about recommended types of exercise and be able to carry out an exercise programme at home.
  • Exercise and dialysis – for patients receiving dialysis at Guy's and St Thomas' dialysis units. We can help you take part in exercise during your dialysis session. As well as the benefits of exercise, exercise during dialysis has been shown to help with a more effective dialysis treatment.
