Begining your journey
Your journey with rehabilitation and exercise will often start with a consultation with one of our practitioners such as an Osteopath or Physiotherapist. Both primary health practitioners are trained to examine and understand the mechanics of your body and injuries or limitations and advise how best to proceed with rehabilitation or exercise
Initial case history, examination completed in the consult room as an initial Physiotherapy Consult.
An exercise-based, individualised class taken by a Physiotherapist.
These classes may use Pilates-based exercises and will include rehab exercises. It is claimable on Your Private Health Insurance.
Reassessment of program; outcomes and goals must be done at least every 6 months.
At Move, Exercise Physiology is the cornerstone of remaining well and preventing further injuries or complications after a diagnosis. Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEP) are niche Accredited Allied Health Professional trained in the delivery of exercise programs for any chronic condition.
A consult with an Exercise Physiologist will involve a Case history, examination and discovery completed in consult room as an initial Exercise Physiology session.
The session will include movement screening, assessment and measuring.
The Exercise Physiologist will develop an extensive, complete exercise program; divided into exercises done at the clinic with the EP and exercises done at home and/or with your PT.
Most follow up sessions completed in the gym with reviews completed in the consult room and/ or gym space.
AEP’s are 4 year degree trained and nationally accredited with Exercise and Sport Science Australia (ESSA) and can work with a whole range of conditions. Some of these include back pain, arthritis, cancer, joint pains, osteoporosis and chronic pain.
AEP’s are also experts in managing client’s problems when it comes to rehabilitating a specific injury after diagnosis and initial treatment from an Osteopath, GP or post-surgery. Whether these problems occur due to lack of time, money, or equipment AEP’s are masters of adaptation as usually their clientele have multiple conditions to manage at once.
AEP’s secondary tool of rehabilitating patients is through education. We at Move believe that if you are educated about your condition it goes a long way to changing your mindset about how you feel as well as motivates you to continue the rehab process without falling off the bandwagon. Being clinicians we know that patients get busy and come up with many excuses as to why “I didn’t do my exercises” and we as Exercise Physiologists try to break these barriers down, not because we don’t believe your reasons for not doing your exercises but because we truly want to help you manage and improve your condition.
