Physical fitness plays four important roles in our lives:

  • Supports optimal body function
  • Improves resistance against stress
  • Improves capacity to cope with a busy lifestyle
  • Helps safeguard against diseases

However with the busy lives we lead physical exercise can be inconsistent and our physical condition can deteriorate before we realise it.

A planned fitness program can lead to:

  • Improved cardiorespiratory fitness
  • Improved strength, endurance, power and stability
  • Improved mobility and flexibility
  • Relief from pain conditions
  • Increased capacity to perform work, recreational and life functions
  • Weight control

Role of Physiotherapist

Physiotherapists are experts in exercise programs for both the fit, healthy person who requires specific fitness and injury prevention advice, and for the injured or disabled person who has specific needs and considerations.

The assistance of a professional physiotherapist can:

  • Ensure you adopt a fitness program suitable to your current condition
  • Support you to maintain a more consistent regime
  • Avoid injury which can interrupt your fitness program and life in general
  • Develop a program that is enjoyable and sustainable
  • Tailored to help you cope with chronic conditions
