Frequently Asked Questions
Here are a few of our commonly asked questions. If you have any more please fill out the form below or contact us at Hunter MoveAbility and we’ll be more than happy to help.
This is the age-old question Hunter MoveAbility receives every day. We at Hunter MoveAbility have spent, ourselves, many years determining how to describe this to our clients. As Exercise Physiologists we are trained to understand your medical history and use this information to provide you with a movement strategy to help prevent, manage and/or overcome your health concerns. This allows you to live with the freedom of knowing your body is working the best way possible to combat your health concerns.
We love saying it’s the art of science! We are science trained to provide clear evidence-based therapy, however, the artistry comes with working with you to paint that ultimate picture of your improved health.
Referrals are welcome, however, not necessary if you are claiming through your health fund or attending on your own accord.
A referral from your Doctor is required when accessing our services under Medicare (EPC), DVA or an insurance claim, such as Worker Compensation or CTP. Discuss your eligibility for this with your Doctor to determine if you can access these funding sources.
Hunter MoveAbility will put you through a comprehensive evaluation in your first appointment. This includes a case history, understanding your reason for attending to us, what you want to achieve, a comprehensive physical assessment, evaluation of your assessment and most importantly, we will put together a management plan to assist you towards your goals!
From this point in time, we work together to put together an individualised program to you, to assist with moving towards your goals. We run through this in our programming session and provide clear and easy to understand information regarding why we have prescribed this unique program for you! Explaining why is the most important part of what we do, so you can understand what is happening to that body of yours and how what you are doing is improving your health. From here we monitor and modify through our work together to obtain the best possible outcome for you!
