Cardiac Rehabilitation Program
Cardiac rehabilitation is provided for any patient with a surgical or non-surgical cardiac condition. The program aims to educate the cardiac patient about safe exercise, diet, medications they may be taking and any mood/anxiety/depression they may be experiencing.
Pulmonary rehabilitation is provided for all patients with lung conditions including COPD and Emphysema. The program uses exercise and education to maximise quality of life for patients suffering from pulmonary conditions, in a safe, professional and supportive environment.
Falls and Balance Program
Falls prevention is a group-based program for any patient who is experiencing falls issues or has a falls risk, either in the community or at home. It provides the patient with Best Practice education, exercise and evaluation to help decrease the risk of falls. The program is structured to make the patient feel safe and to build confidence in exercise and general everyday living.
One in (approximately) every 300 people, are diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease and almost 20% are of working age. Appropriate exercise can maintain function and independence whilst helping to reduce burden of care.
Our Parkinson’s group is targeted at mid-stage disease where patients are still mostly independent. It is based on the principles of higher intensity, large amplitude movements which are shown to be beneficial. Our group classes are led by our Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists and involve speech pathology and other allied health professionals as required.
