Exercise Physiology

iNform’s Exercise Physiology services are for those that require special care. Our team will work with you to find ways so that you can increase your physical activity to reach your goals regardless of your current health and fitness.

“What is an exercise physiologist??” you may be asking yourself?

An accredited exercise physiologist (AEP, or EP) is an Allied Health professional who specialises in the use of exercise to help patients get fitter and healthier.  Exercise physiologists undergo 4 years of university training plus ongoing accreditation requirements, qualifying them to be able to treat clients with medical conditions through exercise prescription and rehabilitation plans.

iNform’s Exercise Physiologists are experienced in treating conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, chronic and persistent pain, cancer and depression and can help you find the best way to exercise and take charge of these so that you can focus on living your life.

Our Exercise Physiology services are covered by many private health funds giving you greater accessibility to these specialised services. If you currently suffer from a chronic health condition you may also qualify for Medicare or DVA rebates.

If you feel as though iNform’s services best suit you, then please call or email us so that we can help you build the health you deserve.

Exercise Rehabilitation

When NO PAIN IS THE ULTIMATE GAIN

There is no better known way to rehabilitate yourself from an injury than exercise. If you suffer from pain or injury that is either acute (injury caused by a specific event) or chronic/persistent (occurs over a long period of time), then ‘exercise rehabilitation’ is for you. Due to the complex nature of pain and injuries, an exercise physiologist will walk side by side with you and coach you to better health.

If you have come to us via your health practitioner, we will liaise with them on your behalf to put together an exercise solution that will work best for your body.

So please don’t persevere in pain, contact us today by email or phone so we can offer you a fresh hope for a pain-less tomorrow!

Exercise Physiology Return to Work Services

iNform’s exercise physiology return to work services provide a safe and welcoming environment with an emphasis on empowering the individual to manage their injury and safely returning to work.

SUPPORTING RETURN TO WORK THROUGH QUALITY MOVEMENT

Key focus points of iNform service delivery include:

  • Encouraging behaviour changes and health outcomes to improve and maintain function in order to support the return to work process.
  • Empowering injured workers with knowledge and skills such that they are able to manage their injuries independently and reduce associated treatment costs.
  • Managing co-morbidities and pharmacological interactions with exercise in an ageing workforce.
  • Increasing access to appropriate exercise support services, and providing self-management options.
  • Assessing, retraining and reinforcing correct function and improving overall job fitness.

Chronic Disease Management

If you currently have a chronic condition such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis or osteoporosis you are in good hands with iNform’s Exercise Physiologists. Our Chronic Disease Management program will work closely with your GP and your other health professionals to ensure that you have the best quality of care.

Our Exercise Physiologists will put a plan in place to help you gradually build your activity in surroundings you feel comfortable in, and to gain a better understanding of your condition and how exercise can help you live a healthier and more fulfilling life.

If your GP feels that you would be suited to this program, Medicare or DVA rebates may well apply. Under the appropriate referral your consultations with an Exercise Physiologist may be partly or fully subsidised.

If you currently have type II diabetes, we also offer Medicare subsidised group services that provide a cost effective way to exercise in a supportive environment (see Diabetes Group Class).

Please feel free to contact us today to discuss how we can help you better manage your health conditions.
