The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) can sometimes be a little confusing to navigate for those who can access the benefits. Here at the Biomechanics, we are an accredited NDIS provider and can support you with our Exercise Physiology services. Our services can assist in creating resilience, improvements to your condition and improved ability to complete daily activities.
As an Exercise Physiologist we are qualified to provide evidence based exercise prescription for those with chronic health conditions that are covered through the NDIS system. We have completed study with specific relation to musculoskeletal, metabolic, neurological and cardiovascular conditions.
It is important for those living with chronic health conditions to strive towards reaching personal goals to improve self-efficacy, mood and overall mental health. Fletcher & Banasik (2001) outlined that “regular physical exercise can prevent or improve many chronic health conditions”. They further go on to report that exercise self-efficacy is an important predictor of the adherence and maintenance of exercise/activity behaviours (Fletcher & Banasik, 2001). Exercise has also been seen to have significant affects on our mental health. Individuals who exercised had a 43.2% fewer days off work for mental health reasons than those who did not exercise, regardless of the type of exercise undertaken (Chekroud et al., 2018).
We will focus on developing meaningful goals for each individual client and assist with improving skills of daily living. Each of our clients is important to us and we ensure that we work together to attain goals that are important to them. Creating structure and routine around exercise can assist with adherence to an exercise program and thus build individuals confidence that they can increase their physical levels independently.
It is important to treat each individual as a human being before labelling them as their condition or a particular set of circumstances. Acknowledging the person in front of us and truly understanding them assists with creating the individualised care they need (Godfery, Young & Shannon et al, 2018). This is extremely important amongst our NDIS community, as we like to promote individuality and expression of their personality.
