Our Exercise Physiology programs for injuries are individually tailored, considerate of the injury recovery processes while encompassing a whole of person approach. The rehabilitation plan built around uncomplicated physical activity.
Mental Health / Illness
The therapeutic benefit of exercise for mental health has been widely documented in research as being both preventive and rehabilitative. It has the capacity to reduce depressive symptoms, while improving concentration, alertness and sleeping patterns. Exercise also can improve overall quality of life through social interactions, purposeful activity, meaningful use of time and self-empowerment.
Exercise also helps to reduce the secondary health issues and concerns which have a higher prevalence alongside mental health conditions. Our programs act as an excellent complement to other mental health interventions.
Chronic Health Issues
Physical inactivity is a known and strong risk factor for increased weight gain, cholesterol, blood pressure and blood glucose levels, all of which significantly heighten the risk of onset of a number of diseases such as:
- Heart disease
- Respiratory diseases
A very strong body-of-evidence shows that implementing manageable physical activity routines can reduce the onset, development and/ or progress of these diseases while reaping the additional benefits exercise offers.
Our programmes are oriented towards education and empowerment, as much as exercise-specifics ensuring that self-management of long-term health is achievable.
