Your NDIS expert

Exercise physiology

Now, I’ll admit, I’m a bit of a granny. You’ll catch me in the swimming pool getting my aerobics on because it’s easier on my joints. My exercise physiologist suggested it, and I haven’t looked back. As for how exercise physiology fits under the NDIS well, that looks different for different people and can include things like pain management, strength training, and mobility enhancement.

Let's delve into how exercise physiology can align with NDIS goals for participants and their families:

1. Pain Management: We all know pain can be a real downer, right? But with the guidance of an exercise physiologist, you can learn techniques and exercises that can ease that discomfort and give you more of those good days.

2. Strength Training: It's not just about lifting heavy weights at the gym. Strength training can be tailored to each individual's needs. Whether you're aiming to lift your grandkid or simply open a jar of pickles, these professionals have got your back!

3. Mobility Enhancement: Being able to move around freely can make such a difference. With the help of an exercise physiologist, you can work on your mobility, making daily tasks and activities easier and more enjoyable.

4. Cardiovascular Health: Keeping your ticker in top shape is crucial. Exercise physiologists can suggest heart-friendly exercises that'll leave you feeling more energised.

5. Breathing Easier: For those who struggle with respiratory issues, these professionals can offer exercises to improve lung capacity and breathing techniques, so you're taking in the world with fuller breaths.

6. Tailored Programs: What's fantastic about exercise physiologists is that they don't offer one-size-fits-all solutions. They'll assess your needs and create a program just for you, ensuring it's both effective and safe.

7. Education: Alongside the physical aspects, they'll educate you about your body, how it moves, and how to look after it. Knowledge is power, and with it, you can take control of your health journey.

8. Boosting Mental Health: Let's not forget the mind in all of this. Regular movement and exercise, tailored to you, can give your mental health a boost, reducing stress and upping those feel-good vibes.

Exercise physiology can be such an asset in anyone's NDIS journey, helping you tap into the best version of yourself, physically and mentally. So, whether you’re chasing the feeling of a post-workout high or just wanting to move with a little more ease, it's worth exploring how this service might fit into your plan.
