Veteran Exercise Programs

How we can help.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) fully fund entitled Gold and White card members referred to Capital Rehab Professionals via their GP to receive the highest standard of care, support and exercise prescription from our qualified Exercise Physiologists. 

 

Our Physiologists assist with the management of; 

* chronic disease (including arthritis and cardiac conditions)

* pre-post surgery / injuries

* develop better mental wellbeing and social connections​

* increase your energy and productivity

* build stronger bones, muscles and joints.

* help reduce pain

* increase function.  

 

The initial assessment involves discussing an individual treatment plan which aims to achieve optimum outcomes and ongoing benefits in everyday activities. We develop an individual exercise program and encourage a healthier lifestyle, assistance to move better, be stronger and more resilient. We help set treatment goals and discuss realistic and meaningful activities according to your needs. This may involve private exercise assistance, hydrotherapy, small group clinical pilates classes and / or our DVA group class.   

 

Our specially developed DVA group classes are run for 1 hour twice per week. These sessions are designed so each member can follow his or her customised program with supervision of our Exercise Physiologist and benefit from exercising with peers, often ending with a chat and coffee after class.
