These interventions are exercise-based and include health and physical activity education, advice and support, and lifestyle modification, focusing on achieving behavioural change.
At IOT, our exercise physiologists form an integral part of our multidisciplinary team. They work closely with our physiotherapists and occupational therapists to ensure each participant has a tailored approach to achieving their goals. Exercise physiology interventions aim to:
Prevent or manage acute, sub-acute or chronic disease or injury
Assist in restoring one’s optimal physical function
In the 2019 NDIS Support Catalogue, Exercise Physiology was included in the Improved Daily Living Skills Category in addition to the Improved Health and Wellbeing Category, creating more opportunity for choice and control for NDIS participants. This allows IOT participants to maximise the funding available in their plan with maximum return for benefit. With all your practitioners under one roof, IOT is active in managing NDIS Plans to ensure the participant receives the benefit from all the professions involved.
