Chronic Disease Management

The term Chronic Disease is an umbrella term that describes a group of conditions that have similar characteristics of being long lasting and persistent in nature.

Affecting 1 in 5 Australians, these conditions are the leading cause of illness and disability in Australia. Most of these conditions do not have a cure, but can be effectively managed with exercise to improve quality of life and better daily function.

An experienced Exercise Physiologist is the most appropriately trained professional to assist with Chronic Disease Management, as these conditions are often accompanied with pain, decrease mobility and potentially other medical conditions.
