How Exercise Physiology can help people with disability
Living with a disability can affect everyone in many different ways. We understand this can also create barriers or hurdles that people with disability must overcome. Exercise can help reduce these barriers and improve
- Independence– Do everyday activities with less need of assistance
- Empowerment– Be able to try new things you thought you couldn’t do!
- Quality of life– Bring enjoyment back into your life by feeling and moving better
Here at Effect, we understand and appreciate the importance of feeling strong in your body and getting the most out of your life.
You can see one of our practitioners in a one-on-one setting or small group sessions. Our Exercise Physiologists understand the NDIS completely. We tailor your treatment/exercise to your needs, communicate with people in your NDIS support team and help you achieve your goals.
We work with your Support Coordinator and other parties in the NDIS to optimise your plan to provide you (or your child) with amazing outcomes.. It is important to get your planner to allocate funding to the category of “Improved Health and Well-being”, “Improved Daily Living” or “Core Supports” – This is the category for Exercise Physiologists. If you are unsure of your funding your Support Coordinator can contact us directly.
We have Exercise Physiologists who specialise in working with children with various disabilities. We enjoy seeing children improve in developmental milestones and create confidence in their own abilities to participate in school and extracurricular activities. At Effect Exercise Physiology we understand how important school participation is for children with disabilities so we have before and after school appointments available (these are very popular times so call ASAP to reserve your child’s appointment today!).
