Evidence-Based Care Plans
Following the initial appointment, the Exercise Physiologist will develop a comprehensive, evidence-based exercise program. The exercise program will be tailored to suit the client’s individual needs, taking into account any contributing lifestyle and health factors, such as:
- Living situation
- Social life
- Current activity level (as well as previous activity levels)
- Access to exercise equipment
Subsequent appointments will generally include going through the exercise program, as well as prescribing an at-home, independent program for between visits.
When is an Exercise Physiologist Recommended?
Exercise Physiologists often work hand in hand with Physiotherapists and in many cases clients will benefit from the expertise of both.
A Physiotherapist will often provide specialised care in response to an individual’s specific injuries or rehabilitation goals. An Exercise Physiologist will provide an extra dimension to the rehabilitation and look at an individual’s overall health, fitness and wellbeing.
What Can I Expect When I Book an Appointment?
Like all of our mobile services, our Exercise Physiologist provides home visits with Trust, Compassion and Care. An initial appointment will involve:
- A functional assessment
- Discussion of key areas of physical fitness (such as oxygenation levels etc).
- Short term and long-term goal setting
Goal setting can relate to any area of physical fitness that the client wants to improve. For example, an Exercise Physiologist might work with someone on weight loss, but that person may also want to improve their cardiac health. An Exercise Physiologist can provide support for both.
