Empowerment Through Exercise: The Empirical Evidence
At Guardian Exercise Rehabilitation, we utilise a contemporary and evidence-based approach to health care, which centres around enhancing our clients’ confidence in their health.
As demonstrated within our daily improvement statistics, our clients have overwhelmingly developed increased confidence to engage in normal daily activities both at home and vocationally. These improvements are multifactorial and individualised, and go further than simple improvements in muscular strength or fitness – but also enhanced self-efficacy and health literacy, which ultimately provides the foundational confidence to engage in exercise-based interventions in order to achieve their return to quality of life goals.
We also passionately and collaboratively pursue the goal of self-management, which is highlighted within our independence statistics. In order to achieve self-management of one’s rehabilitation, we again look to enhance our clients’ self-efficacy and health literacy through the provision of a variety of health information sheets contained within My Health Portal. Furthermore, the recent introduction of our Pain Management Guidebook provides a robust and all-encompassing resource for clients experiencing chronic pain to better understand their pain and assist in increasing their confidence to engage in exercise.
The clinical challenges faced within the personal injury space are well-reported, and utilising these contemporary resources, alongside effective and graded exercise programs with a dynamic client-centred goal setting approach, assisted in achieving positive client experiences and outcomes. We are proud of the positive impact we are having on our clients’ lives and their recovery journey, and these latest results highlight the importance of truly adopting a biopsychosocial approach by utilising exercise and physical activity interventions integrated with high quality resources to empower our clients in achieving sustainable and meaningful self-management of their rehabilitation.
