Services

DVA

At Core Health and Rehabilitation we work with individuals through the Department of Veteran Affairs by using exercise rehabilitation to help manage a variety of conditions. Our experience is in exercise treatment for arthritis, low back pain, chronic pain, nerve pain, injuries, post traumatic stress disorder and other mental health conditions. We also use exercise in the management of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and lung disease.

Our exercise programs are tailored to suit each individual and their goals. We work with you to develop a treatment plan specific to your condition, severity and goals. Our hope is to equip you with the skills you need to reach your goals and ultimately be able to effectively self-manage your condition. We also work in collaboration with other health professionals to ensure wholistic care which then leads towards the best outcomes for each person. Our facilities can cater to both low-impact rehabilitation and strength training, depending on the type of care needed and client goals. We welcome individuals of all ages and exercise abilities within the DVA white and gold card holders.

NDIS

Our Exercise Physiologists at Core Health and Rehabilitation have extensive experience providing exercise services to individuals within the NDIS. We pride ourselves on inclusive care and endeavour always to cater to each person’s individual needs. Our job as Exercise Physiologists within this space is to assess current movement ability, identify areas that may need improvement and then develop a specific exercise program to target these, therefore working towards ultimately achieving better quality of life.

We cater to all ages and a wide range of physical and mental disabilities, including but not limited to:

  • Stroke

  • Autism

  • Downs Syndrome

  • Cerebral palsy

  • Traumatic brain injury

  • Spinal cord injury

Our goal is to use exercise as a way to highlight and strengthen each person’s abilities rather than focusing on the disabilities. We will work with you to reach both your exercise goals and those goals set in your NDIS plan. We also collaborate with other health professionals involved in your care to ensure our treatment complements others, therefore giving you the best chance of success.

MEDICARE

Under Medicare, individuals with chronic disease are eligible for 5 subsidised consults with allied health professionals. This is called a Team Care Arrangement (TCA) and the 5 visits can be spread between a/an Aboriginal Health worker, Audiologist, Chiropractor, Diabetes Educator, Dietician, Exercise Physiologist, Occupational Therapist, Osteopath, Physiotherapist, Podiatrist and Speech Pathologist.

At Core Health and Rehabilitation, we provide Exercise Physiology services under the TCA provided by the GP. We have experience working with a wide variety of chronic conditions and circumstances in this space, including low back pain, diabetes, arthritis, chronic musculoskeletal pain or injury and joint replacement surgery.

In your first consult we gather information on your condition, medical history, previous injuries, previous exercise history and your goals. From there we develop a specific exercise program to manage your condition and help to achieve those goals. We work collaboratively with you in this process to ensure the program given is both interesting and manageable; we want to design a program that you will enjoy and stick to in the long-term. In these session we also endeavour to provide education on how to self-manage your condition so moving forward you are better equipped to continue with health management and exercise.

GROUP PROGRAMS

Core Health and Rehabilitation also offers different group programs for those who struggle with motivation and would like to socialise with others while exercising. Currently we have two groups on offer, an Over 60s group and a Diabetes group. Both group programs run for 8 weeks, with an exercise session each week. Before starting in the group you will have an individual consult with the Exercise Physiologist to chat about your conditions, previous injuries and exercise history. The exercises during the group program will be tailored to suit your abilities, so no matter how unfit you think you are this group will still be perfect for you.

In the Over 60s program you will be able to meet others around the same age while completing weekly exercise sessions which are held on Mondays 8am-9am. Each week we will deliver education and resources that you will be able to take home on a variety of topics, including the benefits of exercise, heart and lung health, motivation, arthritis, low back pain and fall prevention.

The Diabetes group is for individuals with both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes who are looking for some more guidance around exercise and would like to meet others with diabetes. Throughout the program we will discuss the importance of exercise with diabetes, healthy diet, how to implement exercise at home, possible complications of diabetes and how to manage diabetes long-term. At the end of the program you will go home with an information pack that will help you continue to manage your diabetes. 

RETURN TO WORK

Whether it is employer or self directed, we can help get you back to work sooner through exercise intervention. Working with your exercise physiologist on a work task focused program will not only help you with your recovery time, but reduce your risk of re-injury as well as improve mental readiness for return to work. ​
