EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY – THE AMS APPROACH

The AMS Exercise Physiology approach offers patients with an unique entry point for reconnecting their body with movement based interventions. Prior to engaging in exercise, our Exercise Physiologists conduct a comprehensive biomechanical and postural assessment. The assessment is designed to identify any range of motion restrictions, postural imbalances, muscular weakness and functional limitations. Assessment outcomes identify crucial elements that require rehabilitation to reduce your risk of injury or developing muscular pain.

Why AMS? Patients get to take advantage of our unique programs run within our boutique exercise studio in Parramatta. You will receive an exceptional level of care by our university qualified exercise professionals benefiting from a faster recovery time.

EXERCISE IS MEDICINE

At AMS our core focus is movement. Our team practise what they preach and believe the key to optimal health is through integrating active movement. Our practitioners have developed unique exercise programs delivering effective patient outcomes. We help you reconnect your body with exercise improving your quality of life.

Doctors and specialists are recognising the important role exercise plays in treating, managing and preventing various chronic conditions. Exercise is a powerful tool that can improve your bone health, blood lipid profile, aerobic fitness, level of strength and reduce pain. Remember, ageing is inevitable, disease and pain is preventable.

CHRONIC DISEASE MANAGEMENT

At AMS, our movement specialists have experience working with complex clients diagnosed with multiple chronic diseases. Exercise forms a significant component of treating various conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease.

Your doctor will determine whether you fit the CDM eligibility and can organise a referral to see one of our Exercise Physiologists. Our practitioners are all registered Medicare providers and are available to help you today.

PRE AND POST OPERATIVE REHAB

Implementing a specific pre-operative exercise program will significantly enhance your post-operative recovery. Our programs focus on improving your flexibility, balance, strength, proprioception and pain management prior to surgery.

At AMS we have your post surgery rehabilitation covered. You will commence intensive physiotherapy to reduce inflammation and pain, improve mobility and restore function. On progression, you will transition from physiotherapy to exercise physiology. This stage of rehab will focus on redeveloping normal movement patterns and increasing strength and stability in the surrounding joints.

MEDICARE AND HEALTH FUND REBATES

The Chronic Disease Management (formerly Enhanced Primary Care or EPC) enables Doctors to refer clients to various allied health providers such as Physiotherapy and Exercise Physiology. The CDM usually involves a multidisciplinary approach to patient care which is instigated by your Doctor. Clients may be eligible for five supervised sessions with our Exercise Physiologist.
