Keeping Active

As we age keeping active is even more important to ensure we maintain our independence and quality of life.

Body Fit offers a program specifically designed to help maintain or improve your:

  • Balance
  • Endurance
  • Strength
  • Bone Density

This program is ideal for those clients who are:

  • At risk of falling
  • Suffering from Osteoarthritis
  • Suffering from a chronic condition (back pain, diabetes, respiratory conditions, fibromyalgia)
  • Recovering from surgery

Each program developed is created specifically for each client to achieve individual goals.

Below is a guide of what a client program could include:

  • A Risk Assessment
  • Education
  • A home visit to perform an assessment of the client’s home and to provide appropriate recommendations, structures and strategies to minimise risk and make the home environment as safe as possible
  • Outcome measures are recorded to determine and revisit the effectiveness of the client’s program
  • Individual program is set and monitored by physiotherapist in either a 1:1 or group environment depending on the client’s needs and wishes
  • A self-guided home exercise program is designed for ongoing use and can be reviewed by the physiotherapist at the client’s discretion
