Referrals

We accept referrals for Exercise Physiology from your GP or specialist and for Medicare, DVA, TAC and WorkCover patients. We offer bulk billing for patients who have a Team Care Arrangement plan from their Doctor. Self-referrals are also welcome.

Where do I start with Exercise Physiology?

The first step is to do an Initial Assessment. This assessment will include a discussion around your medical history, lifestyle and a postural and movement assessment. Together with your AEP you will discuss your goals and develop a progressive treatment plan to best achieve these. Based on this assessment; you will then undergo clinical exercise interventions in either a 1:1 or group setting, depending on your needs. All sessions delivered by an Accredited Exercise Physiologist are eligible for private health rebates, depending on the terms and conditions of your coverage with your private health provider.

Chronic Disease Management

A chronic medical condition is one that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer. A referral from a GP will entitle you to up to 5 sessions partly covered by Medicare.

In these sessions our Exercise Physiologists will assess your individual needs, and then tailor an exercise and lifestyle modification program to assist you. Within your sessions, you will experience 1:1 supervision where you will undertake an exercise routine that has been specifically designed to treat and manage your medical condition or injury as well as discuss any problems or barriers you are experiencing outside your scheduled sessions and how to overcome these. A large focus of the session will be to give you the education and tools which enable you to make positive lifestyle choices in your everyday life.

TYPE 2 DIABETES MANAGEMENT

Type 2 diabetes is a ‘lifestyle disease’ which is characterised by elevated levels of blood sugar. It is also strongly associated with high blood pressure, high cholesterol and weight gain and if untreated can lead to further medical complications. Lifestyle modification (diet and exercise) is shown to be the most effective method of treating Type 2 Diabetes, as well as having many other positive effects on you health, wellbeing and quality of life.

Our program will assist your Type 2 Diabetes by:

  • Stabilise blood glucose levels
  • Improving you activity levels
  • Reduce your waist girth
  • Reduce your blood pressure
  • Improve nutritional habits

Our program begins with an Initial Assessment, where your health, strength, movement and physical activity levels will be determined. You will then move into a group class, with a maximum of 3 clients to one Exercise Physiologist. These classes aim to improve your blood glucose levels through individualised clinical exercises.

Please see your GP for a referral to receive Medicare rebates.
