A New Lease On Life
Exercise is medicine for your body and mind at any age!
Exercise Physiologists are university trained allied health professionals, who use exercise to manage and prevent chronic disease, disability and injuries.
There is evidence that exercise helps with many conditions, including but not limited to, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, musculoskeletal pain and injury, osteoporosis, cancer, lung conditions and mental health.
Our Exercise Physiologists at Link HC will design, deliver and evaluate an exercise plan specific to you, taking into consideration any conditions you may have, to help you work towards your goals.
Exercise Right Week is held 20-26 May 2019 and the theme this year is Active Ageing! We want to reinforce the importance of regular activity throughout all stages of life.
Take, for example, our wonderful client Rosemary. She first saw a Link HC Exercise Physiologist six months after suffering a stroke. Despite huge improvements in that initial period, Rosemary continued to have some weakness on the right side of her body, low endurance and didn’t feel steady walking in public without her walker. So much so, she wasn’t leaving her home very often and felt depressed.
After some one-on-one exercise sessions, Rosemary gained the confidence to attend our Prescribed Exercise Program. She now confidently walks with a walking stick – sometimes without! She enjoys getting out of the house and completing regular exercise.
“I feel very nurtured, with improved confidence and less depressed. I still would like to be able to walk more, but that is coming. I also don’t want to have another stroke!” Rosemary says.
Did we mention Rosemary is 76 years young?! It’s never too late to start an exercise regime, and our Exercise Physiologists at Link HC are available to guide you.
