Regular exercise is a healthy habit that benefits your overall physical and mental wellbeing. It’s also an effective way to manage symptoms of multiple sclerosis and other neurological conditions.

Creating a fitness regimen that works for your current symptoms and mobility level can be a challenge on your own. Our experienced exercise physiologists have a deep understanding of neuro conditions and can help you safely push your boundaries. We will work with you to develop the best possible exercise regimen to meet your needs.

How exercise physiology can benefit you

How you can benefit from a personalised exercise program:

  • maintain your mobility and independence
  • manage your symptoms including spasticity, stiffness, pain and anxiety
  • improve your strength
  • improve sleep and mental health.

Your program could include things like:

  • Visiting the gym to use specialist equipment so you can build your strength safely without worrying about falls.
  • A home visit for a one-on-one exercise session.
  • A home visit to train your carer/family member so they can help you exercise at home when it’s convenient for you.
  • Help to apply for equipment to increase your independence in exercising.
  • A virtual group exercise program to help you enjoy community and social interaction from the convenience of your own home.

Where do you offer exercise sessions for people living with MS and other neuro?

You can work with an exercise physiologist one-on-one or in a group setting at our wellbeing centres at Lidcombe (NSW), Footscray (Vic) and Hobart (Tas). Our neuro specialised gyms are spacious and well-equipped for people with mobility restrictions.

If you’re located nearby, we offer a home visit service for eligible clients. Alternatively, you can work with our exercise physiologists via Telehealth or through scheduled online programs.
