Age Well For Life EP can provide exercise advice specific to a range of musculoskeletal conditions and injuries including rehabilitation post-surgery. The prescribed exercise programs aim to address the mechanical component of injury plus retrain functional movement patterns and posture.

Age Well For Life EP's goal is to assist you with returning to activities that are meaningful to you as soon as possible.

Exercise can have many profound positive effects on the musculoskeletal system:

  • Muscle responds to exercise by increasing in size, strength, endurance, speed of contraction, power, stability and flexibility.
  • Bone responds to load bearing exercise by increasing in bone mineral density
  • Ligaments and Tendons respond to exercise by increasing load bearing capacity and tensile strength.

Age Well For Life EP equips clients with the knowledge and tools required to self-manage their injuries long-term.

Age Well For Life EP is trained to deliver specific and precise exercise prescription and programming to treat a range of musculoskeletal conditions such as:

Injuries/Mechanical Musculoskeletal Conditions

Arthritis (Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid

Age Well For Life mobile exercise physiologist can provide convenient, safe and effective exercise therapy to assist in the management of arthritis at home.

The physical therapy prescribed has been proven to reduce joint pain, improve range of motion and delay or prevent damage of affected joints.

Research has shown that range of motion exercises reduce pain as they stimulate motor nerve impulses which inhibit the transmission of sensory (pain) impulses at the spinal cord.

Increases in joint movement /loading increases synovial fluid lubrication which can also reduce the symptoms of arthritis.

Age Well For Life EP can help clients build strength and stability of the muscles surrounding problematic joints, leading to greater functional abilities and reduced pain.

Age Well For Life EP takes a holistic approach toward the management of your condition, taking into account all medications, doctor's opinion and of course, most importantly, our clients subjective reports.

Osteopenia and Osteoporosis:

Age Well For Life EP provides convenient, safe and effective load bearing exercise therapy that aims to increase bone mineral density (BMD) and ultimately reduce fragility and the susceptibility to fracture.

Women lose BMD post menopause due to reduction of estrogen and if BMD loss is severe enough it will result in osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis affects about two in every three women and one in three men over the age of 60. The loss of muscle strength and balance, experienced as people age, also speeds up bone loss through disuse, while also increasing the risk of falling.

More than 90% of hip fractures in people with osteoporosis occur as a direct result of a fall.

In children and in inactive adults with low bone mass, regular correctly prescribed exercise can effectively increase BMD.

In healthy active adults, vigorous exercise helps to prevent typical age-related bone loss.

Chronic Pain (Non-specific Musculoskeletal Pain)

Age Well For Life EP provides safe and effective exercise therapy and pain management techniques that aim to get clients active and pain free.

There is strong evidence to support exercise and physical activity as a proven modality in the management of chronic pain.
