At Exercise for Rehabilitation and Health, we understand that focusing on your goals and building your capacity for the activities you love is most important! We aim to work collaboratively between yourself and other supports to ensure best care and some fun along the way!
There are two areas in which Exercise Physiology can be funded. These include:
Capacity Building - Improved Daily Living
Capacity Building - Improved Health and Wellbeing
Essentially, we want to help you improve your skills and your ability for independence. Exercise Physiologist’s can provide support for goals which encompass:
Improving strength or fitness
Increasing participation in community activities or sports
Improving your mobility or balance
Improving or maintaining your overall health inclusive of weight management
We pride ourselves in communicating with other supports, and have onsite collaboration with Physiotherapy available. We work with participants who are both self-managed and plan-managed. It is important to note that we are not currently NDIS registered, and cannot assist with NDIA-managed plans.
Specialty areas within our clinical team include:
· Neurological disorders
· Complex and persistent pain
· Metabolic condition management (such as Diabetes and weight management)
· Musculoskeletal management
Alongside our specialised Exercise Physiology team we also have a team of Physiotherapists who we work collaboratively with, to provide comprehensive and individualised care. We take pride in our collaborative approach to care, as well as the overall experience that our NDIS participants have with us.
Our facility is wheelchair accessible with ample parking available. We have eight treatment rooms and a large clinical gym space which allows us to provide both private settings and social settings for participants. We have three private waiting areas which each have their own touch including a tropical fish tank, natural light and an array of plants and comfortable seating. We have a trained intake team as well as a client experience team that go the extra mile to ensure that everyone's needs are met on their journey with us.
What will an Exercise Physiology session look like?
Often in the first session, it is about getting to know you and your goals. The plan goals you have set out for yourself are a great start, but it is important that we find some smaller goals to tick off that help add to your bigger goals. There may be a few surveys or questionnaires to be completed that will help identify your progress along the way, and we will do a physical assessment to see how you move, and learn more about what it is you would like to achieve in the long term. Then we work with you to decide how often it is we will be working together, when we will be reviewing your progress, and how we can help when it comes to your overall plan being reviewed.
