Exercise Physiology & NDIS

Exercise interventions, as delivered by Exercise Physiologists, provide a range of physical, mental and psychosocial benefits to people with a disability. Exercise improves cardiovascular fitness, neurological function, muscular strength and balance, decreases symptoms of mental illness including depression and anxiety, and can assist to foster social connections and belonging. Ultimately, this can lead to improved quality of life, and life expectancy for NDIS participants.
