Exercise Physiology and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
As of 2021, there are around 4.3 million Australians who have a disability. Within the next five years, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will provide more than $22 billion in funding a year to an estimated 500,000 Australians who have permanent and significant disability. For many people, it will be the first time they receive the disability support they need.
Are you the holder of a self, plan or agency-managed NDIS treatment plan seeking capacity building support?
Since 2018, we have helped a wide variety of NDIS patients achieve significant improvements in their health and function, thus reducing the impact of their disability on their day to day life.
Exercise Physiology is proven to be beneficial for a wide range of disabilities including:
- Autism spectrum disorder,
- Mental health and psychosocial challenges, such as anxiety, depression and Schizophrenia,
- Neurological conditions, such as Motor-neuron disease and Parkinson’s disease,
- Multiple sclerosis,
- Spinal conditions, such as Spina bifida,
- Down syndrome,
- Stroke and Acquired Brain Injuries,
- Paraplegia, and assistance with prosthetic limbs.
As an NDIS-registered provider, we accept and help NDIS participants as part of their treatment plans, including:
- Self-managed treatment plans,
- Plan-managed treatment plans,
- NDIS-managed treatment plans.
The focus of your appointments is to provide you with the skills to reduce the impact of your disability to improve your quality of life and ability to perform activities of daily living. We achieve this by understanding the nature of your condition and applying evidence-based treatment to best suit your needs.
We can assist patients with NDIS plans with the inclusion of:
- Capacity building supports – Improved Health and Wellbeing,
- Capacity building supports – Improved Daily Living, and/or
- Daily activities, assessment, therapy and/or training.
“Physical exercise is good for your mental, spiritual and physical wellbeing. This is why I always try to make it to my weekly sessions with Restart Exercise Physiology. I am a 60 year old female who struggles daily with her mental health. Thank goodness I have found Luke at Restart his kindness and understanding gets me past my front door to my Friday class. His knowledge of the human body is insightful and he always adds wit and humour to any task he sets before me.
I 100% recommend joining the Restart team to improve your life and physical fitness. After every session I always feel better and am glad I have spent another hour of my life with a wonderful caring person”
