1. Exercise performance tests
Feel like you have reached a plateau but you don’t know what is limiting you? Exercise performance tests provide an insight into our physical, cardiorespiratory and metabolic function to give you a benchmark of your current fitness and to ensure we are on the right track with our training program. To maximize your performance, optimize your training with scientific data, don’t leave it to chance.
2. Strength and conditioning
Improve your sports performance by enhancing your physical capacities such as sports specific strength, speed, muscular endurance, aerobic power, agility, stability, and mobility.
Prehab, also known as ‘preventative rehab’, is a proactive approach to prevent injury. By identifying and correcting muscular imbalances and weaknesses that lead to movement compensation, we can potentially reduce the risk of injury and avoid pain.
4. Exercise rehabilitation
Injury can be frustrating and debilitating.
We help to restore the functional ability and quality of life of those who sustain acute or chronic injuries through physical treatments, exercise therapy, and management strategies.
5. Chronic disease prevention and management
Chronic diseases are medical conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, osteoarthritis, stroke, obesity, asthma and etc. We adopt an integrated care approach to prevent and manage conditions through patient education, exercise-counselling strategies, exercise prescription, and medical nutrition therapy.
6. Weight management
By assessing lifestyle behaviours, including physical activity patterns, eating habits, stress levels, and readiness to exercise, we help you to achieve and maintain good health through individualized exercise programs and management strategies.
7. Dietetic and nutrition consultation
Diet and nutrition play an essential role in our health and performance. By assessing your nutritional status, we develop individualized nutrition care plans based on your medical conditions, nutritional goals, and preferences.
8. Treatment and management of the foot and ankle
Having good foot health is essential for an active life. From identifying, treating and managing foot and ankle injuries and conditions caused by chronic diseases such as diabetes and arthritis, the podiatrist carried out a range of non-surgical interventions, for instance, shoe insoles/orthotics and tailored footwear advice. The podiatrist is also here to provide support in the recovery and rehabilitation process of the lower limbs.
