WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN MY INITIAL ASSESSMENT? An initial assessment will involve taking a thorough medical history, including previous or current injuries, health conditions and medications. This information is vital in prescribing exercise that is tailored to you.
The assessment is specific to your current condition – which could range from cardiovascular measures through to specific strength and flexibility testing.
You will be guided through an effective way of setting goals and breaking them down into smaller parts to build sustainable and achievable outcomes. These goals will be continually checked and adjusted to ensure that your program reflects your progress and needs at that time.
If required, a structured home exercise program will be developed to ensure that you are getting the most out of your face-to-face exercise physiology sessions.
Most importantly, you will walk away with a clear management plan for your particular condition and feel supported by the fact that your exercise is being taken care of by a professional. Your exercise physiologist will also collaborate with your other treating practitioners to ensure each member of your healthcare team is on the same page.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A ONE-ON-ONE EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY SESSION? Your one-on-one session with an exercise physiologist will involve a tailored clinical exercise session based on your initial assessment and goals. This session allows for maximum supervision and helps to develop good exercise technique and understanding.
Individual exercise physiology sessions are available as 30 and 45 minute appointments – meaning that clinical exercise will always fit in your schedule!
ARE THERE GROUP SESSIONS AVAILABLE? To ensure that your exercise can be completely individualised, supervised and safe, Kimberley - the AEP offers 1:3 and group Clinical Exercise Sessions . These go for 45 and 60 minutes and involve a thorough warm up and mobility component to increase function and manage your condition.
