Applying clinical guidance and expertise in a non-clinical setting, our Exercise Physiologists provide Income Protection policy holders who have had the misfortune of suffering illness or injury with exercise-based, meaningful activity-specific work-conditioning programs. In an unassuming manner and driven entirely by personal goals in conjunction with the all-encompassing rehabilitation strategy, our programs support a return to health first and foremost – and thereafter a return to healthy work.
Our programs aim to support the earliest safe, appropriate and sustainable return-to-work whilst also educating on self-guided exercise – promoting self-efficacy as well as durability with outcomes. With an understanding of the workplace and job-demands, our rehabilitative exercise programs are tailored and function-specific; however, also support wholebeing health and work towards self-identified, meaningful goals.
The most accepted frameworks for treating injuries post motor vehicle accident indicate that there are three first-line treatments with high-level supporting evidence – reassure and stay active; return to usual activities; and rehabilitation via physical activity. Our programs are thus built on these overarching principles and look to restore our clients to pre-accident capacities and beyond, promoting high-level function and optimising quality-of-life through simple but effective exercise-based, educative programming
When to refer to an Accredited Exercise Physiologist?
It’s recommended that you refer to an Accredited Exercise Physiologist if you encounter any of the following:
When symptom onset is insidious in nature and/or recovery has plateaued
When deconditioning manifests and restored function is required for work and life
When meaningful physical activity is not already a clear and central foundation of the rehabilitation plan
When outcome-orientation and progressive goals are not clearly defined – or not being achieved
When mental illness has been diagnosed
When mental health, energy levels and/or general wellness are impacted
When fear-avoidant behaviours and/or withdrawal from usual activity become apparent
When clear and purposeful empowerment to self-guide rehabilitation is necessitated
