What is Exercise Prescription?

The formulation of individualised exercise programs based on exercise frequency, intensity, and duration. At PEAK we implement individualised exercise prescription in line with your previous injury history, current symptoms and future goals.

What Is Included as part of Exercise Prescription With PEAK?

Exercise prescription is implemented as part of many of our services including:

  • As part of in room consultations. Generally exercise is prescribed as part of the treatment or home exercise program.
  • As part of a customised 1 to 1 exercise session. This session is where your Physiotherapist, Chiropractor or Podiatrist will spend 45 minutes with you in the gym supervising your exercise program.
  • As part of our Exercise Led Prevention Classes.

Each of these services include a detailed assessment to ensure an individualised exercise prescription.

Benefits Of Regular Exercise

Exercise prescription can be used to reduce your pain, improve your quality of life and move you towards your goals. Often in life we need to be able to move well, and without pain, to participate in meaningful activities. PEAK’s exercise prescription is delivered by qualified practitioners. This means that it will be customised to your injury history, current fitness level, and be progressed in a safe and supervised manner.

When to Use Exercise Prescription

Exercise prescription can be used to improve health and quality of life for most people. The literature continues to highlight the benefits of regular exercise exposure. Before commencing an exercise program, we recommend that you consult with a qualified medical or Allied Health professional. Some common conditions that we prescribe exercise for include:

Fitness Assessment & Exercise Prescription

A detailed assessment will be performed when you come to PEAK. This takes into account your previous activity and injury history, current fitness level, a musculoskeletal exam and understanding your goals. Your program will then be designed to address all of these factors and move you on a pathway to achieving your goals.
