Through functional and physical assessment, we can help to find your current physical capabilities. A graded physical activity program is vital in the implementation of a cardiovascular rehabilitation program. Our team of Accredited Exercise Physiologists are experienced in cardiac rehabilitation and will tailor a graded exercise program for each individuals condition and capacity. We aim to improve function and physical capabilities in a safe and effective manner.
Cardiac rehabilitation can be tailored for a range of different conditions including hypertension, myocardial infarction, coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease, congestive heart failure, and angina. A graded exercise treatment prescribed by our Accredited Exercise Physiologist is highly important in the rehabilitation and management of all cardiovascular conditions.
Pulmonary rehabilitation is an important part of the management and wellbeing of people with chronic respiratory disease who are symptomatic or continue to have decreased function due to pulmonary conditions. Pulmonary conditions can cause severe limitations in a person’s ability to complete even simple activities due to breathlessness and discomfort. Graded exercise programs can improve pulmonary function and allow improved oxygen uptake into the vascular system, reducing the levels of dyspnea experienced.
Pulmonary rehabilitation helps to improve your breathing and wellbeing, aiming to keep you as active as possible and out of hospital. Improving exercise tolerance is one of the key aspects in pulmonary rehabilitation as this allows a continued ability to complete activities of daily living with as minimal limitations as possible. Reversing the cycle of breathlessness and improving function will help not only physical health but also mental wellbeing of pulmonary rehabilitation participants.
A structured, graded exercise program is the most effective way of reducing the activity-induced symptoms of pulmonary disease and increasing exercise tolerance. Our team of Accredited Exercise Physiologists are effective in monitoring oxygen saturation and perceived ratings of breathlessness to find current physical capabilities. Education on pulmonary conditions and structured, science-based exercise prescription are the foundations of pulmonary rehabilitation provided by our team.
Chronic Disease Management
The implementation of a structured exercise program can be used as a valuable and effective tool in the management and prevention of a wide range of chronic diseases and conditions. Physical activity and exercise have been proven as an influential treatment type in reducing pain, increasing function, and improving disability. Providing education on chronic conditions and how exercise can benefit is an important part in chronic disease management, reassuring that life can still be lived to the fullest with a chronic condition.
Some of the chronic conditions exercise physiology has been proven to have a positive effect on include cardiovascular disease, pulmonary disease, musculoskeletal injuries and conditions, metabolic conditions (eg: Diabetes Type I and II), neurological conditions, mental health conditions, and some forms of cancer.
People rarely suffer from a single chronic disease, rather commonly experience a complex combination of multiple chronic conditions. Accredited Exercise Physiologists have the skills and knowledge to help treat and manage multiple chronic conditions, providing a structured treatment plan for even the most complex cases. Through a combination of education about each chronic condition and explanation on how exercise benefits, we aim to develop self-management techniques that sufferers of chronic conditions can use to enhance their lifestyle indefinitely.
