Musculoskeletal Injury

According to the latest research and evidence the vast majority of acute, sub-acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries alike should be rehabilitated with a consistently clear core focus of structured, graded exercise, coupled with education and guidance. Targeted exercise aims to improve movement-tolerance, range, endurance, strength and ultimately restore functionality and improve symptoms. Our programmes embrace the transition from patho-anotomical injury-management, with a true application of the biopsychosocial approach and a rehabilitation plan built around uncomplicated physical activity

Mental Health/ Illness

The therapeutic benefit of exercise for mental illness is rehabilitative, reparative and preventative; it has long been known and is robustly documented in research and practice. Exercise has far-reaching capacity to improve depressive symptoms, mood, alertness, concentration and sleep patterns. Exercise can also contribute to overall enhanced quality-of-life through facilitating social interaction and providing meaningful use of time, purposeful activity and empowerment. Exercise is also the foundational mechanism to address secondary physical health issues and concerns which are of concerningly increased prevalence alongside mental illness. Our programmes act to synergise and complement traditional mental health interventions – such as psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy

Job Analyses

Job Analyses may also be referred to as a Job Dictionary, Duties Manual or Duties Register. This involves an assessment in the workplace and ensuing report to document the duties and physical and/or psychological and cognitive demands of a role, in order to provide employers with resources to assist them in return to work planning for injured employees. It can be tailored, depending on the needs of the organisation

Injuries and Illnesses we consult

Cardiometabolic disorders

Physical inactivity is a known and strong risk factor for increased: weight gain, cholesterol, blood pressure and blood glucose levels, all of which significantly heighten the risk of onset of a number of cardiometabolic diseases – including heart disease, stroke and diabetes. A very strong body-of-evidence shows that implementing manageable physical activity routines can reduce the onset, development and/ or progress of cardiometabolic disease, through eliciting a myriad of physiological benefits. Our programmes are oriented towards education and empowerment, as much as exercise-specifics; thus, ensuring that self-management of long-term health is achievable

Exercise for Cancer

Exercise is proven to provide many benefits before, during and following cancer treatment. Latest research shows strongly that people with cancer who engage in structured exercise experience fewer and less severe treatment-related side effects and report improved quality-of-life. Industry recommendations are that exercise should be embedded as standard practice in cancer care, to specifically facilitate improved physical function, attenuated fatigue, alleviated psychological distress, promoted wellbeing and minimised development of secondary health conditions. Our programmees aim to provide support and education to safely meet exercise guidelines in an individualised way that will provide positive impact for wholebeing health

Worksite Assessments

This is an assessment completed in the workplace – most commonly with the worker and employer present – to assess the duties and physical demands of the worker’s usual role, in order to assist with planning the rehabilitation goal and subsequent graduated Return to Work Program. This assessment is also useful in examining a worker who is on alternative or restricted duties, and it may also include review and recommendations regarding the work environment. A report will then be provided with assessment findings and recommendations. The Worksite Assessment may be completed as part of a Rehabilitation Program, or as a one-off service for a compensable claim
