During your initial consultation, the most important process is to map your past. We do this by understanding your barriers to movement and health.
2. Pain - chronic and acute
4. Limitations or difficulties undertaking daily chores and tasks
5. Lifestyle and work history
Once this process is completed, patients are clinically tested. This allows the prescription to be within your capabilities. Overloading the body (appropriately) is important as it allows our bodies to adapt to exercise. The testing results set our baselines and allows us to drive physiological change such as:
1. Decreasing your blood sugar levels (BsL/HbA1C)
2. Improving cholesterol levels
3. Decreasing chronic pain levels
4. Improving cardiovascular risk markers such as weight or blood pressure
5. Decreasing CK levels
6. Improving muscle size (hypertrophy) and function
7. Improving efficiency of respiratory muscle (lungs, diaphragm)
8. Improved athletic performance
9. Decreasing fatigue
10. Improving subjective measurements of depression and anxiety
Programs are achievable, needs based and are purpose designed. Clinical testing allows this to be done with precision and is a big part of ExHealth's philosophy. We use a range of clinical equipment.
Patients develop SMART goals (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and TIME BASED). Our role in helping you improve your health is to educate you on the most effective self-management strategy. All programs can be conducted onsite, at home, within your local gym. Equipment is not a prerequisite.
The patient intervention model at ExHealth Rehabilitation Services is our differentiating point. Patients are EMPOWERED and INSPIRED. This is undertaken by working closely with patients, assisting them through each stage of change. They understand their conditions and understand time frames for clinical changes to occur.
From service fees and consultation times to best practice evidence and working professionally with a mentor, ExHealth has created its care model around you the PATIENT.
ExHealth believes that it is important to have a BALANCED conversation about exercise and exercise therapy. It treats each patient as an individual and programs are "hands on" as such therapy models are designed to offer patients REAL functional outcomes and ACHIEVE key learning objectives.
