What NDIS Exercise Physiologists Do

Our ESSA registered exercise physiologists are tertiary trained allied health professionals who understand how specific exercises can be utilised to increase overall health, strength and well-being. They work with people of all ages to treat a broad range of physical health conditions including physical injuries and musculoskeletal conditions, mental illness and chronic health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, osteoarthritis and stroke.

Our NDIS registered exercise physiologists understand the influence that a healthy musculoskeletal system has on the brain, cardiovascular and endocrine systems. Looking at the participants current physical condition and working with them to tailor an exercise program that will increase strength, mobility and independence. They can also provide health promoting education, occupational (daily activity) health assessments and injury prevention protocols.

A valuable contributor to our multi-disciplinary team, they deliver positive outcomes whilst managing immediate and longer-term risks. 

Each participant is assessed independently, before being offered specific recommendations and interventions targeted at improving that person’s physical strength, mobility and independence. 

Our Exercise Physiologists Treat:

  • Diabetes

  • Cancer

  • Depression

  • Asthma

  • Cardiovascular diseases

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Osteoporosis

  • Obesity

  • Stroke and other neurological illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease or Multiple Sclerosis

  • Musculoskeletal injuries

  • Muscular deterioration

  • Stabilisation and protection of vulnerable joints

  • Pain management

This list is not exhaustive, and it may be better to get in touch with our exercise physiology team and ask about how they might be able to help.

The NDIS is only available to those under the age of 65, who have an assessed and diagnosed disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities.

Book An NDIS Registered Exercise Physiologist

Once NDIS approved, most participants will work with an NDIS Planner and/or Local Area Coordinator to develop a support plan. Each participant develops an individualised plan that identifies the specific outcomes they wish to achieve, the disability supports that will be funded by the NDIS and other supports they require; often an occupational therapy assessment (click here) can aid in this process of identifying needs.

The NDIS is unique in that participants are now given choice and control over the supports that they receive. If funding for “Improved Daily Living” is included in the plan, then this often means that exercise physiology is covered. The next step is to speak with My Care Provider to book an appointment.
