What services are offered?
The Exercise Physiologist will always commence with a one on one consultation to review your medical history, physical limitations and personal requirements that assist with prescribing a suitable exercise plan. The plan may include regular reviews, regular functional re-assessments, in clinic and or home based exercise programs. Each plan will vary and will be individually tailored to personal requirements.
Health & fitness assessments
If practical to do so, our Exercise Physiologist will undertake base line measures of functional variables such as aerobic fitness, strength, flexibility, joint range of motion, balance, core strength and resting metabolic rate, to help monitor progress, review program effectiveness and assist with motivation.
Individual follow up consultations
Reviews are undertaken as necessary and allow for progress and / or modify the initial plan.
Home exercise plans
Programs are tailored to suit individual needs and goals, and will be practically applied to your daily life.
