Conveniently Active

I recently made a post on social media explaining how important it is to modify exercise programs according to your individual needs. There are national exercise guidelines set for Type 2 diabetes, which are very effective for those who don’t have any other barriers. However, a lot of people find that adhering to national exercise guidelines to be very difficult. This blog is to show what the guidelines recommend to be most effective exercise prescription for type 2 diabetes prevention/management….and how we can modify these if the guidelines are not suitable for an individual.


I have had many clients ask me about whether or not prehabilitation (prehab) is worth while prior to getting a joint replacement, and my answer is always (well most the time, everyone is different) YES!

I am going to use Total Knee Replacements as an example for this blog, but prehab is important for other joint replacements such as hip and shoulder as well.

Meet Wayne!!
Wayne has been suffering from osteoarthritis in his knee for many years. Over the past year his pain has been getting worse and worse, to the point that walking down stairs is near impossible and his knee will give way occasionally when walking.

Wayne went and saw a knee orthopedic specialist who recommended he have a Total Knee Replacement.

Falls and What we can do to help prevent them
A lot of people think that as we get older we can relax a bit more and not have to exercise or do as much physical activity.
However this is not true.
It is more important than ever to exercise as we age, with exercise being one of the most important things we can do for ourselves.
Within Australia, as many as 1 in 3 individuals aged 65 years and older have a fall each year1. As we age we are more at risk of falling, which can result in significant injury.

Happy Clients

Rhiannon was bright and vibrant which meant it was soooo good going to the Gym each day on a rehabilitation program. Her results were amazing and I thank her for her persistence in getting me back on my feet to now being able to represent Australia in my chosen my sport.
I loved the variety & many changes to my gym sessions that mad each day go by so easy. Rhiannon's' ability to get me motivated of which was the hardest thing - as I required so much help to get through each day.

I am a Service Veteran who has had a lower back and posture problem for several years now. My GP referred me to Rhiannon of Conveniently Active twelve months ago and I have been seeing her regularly in this time.
The knowledge and experience she has in treating the underlying causes of problems and then prescribing the necessary physical exercises has seen a remarkable improvement in my condition.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Rhiannon to anyone who may require similar treatment both for her methods and caring manner in which she treats her clients.

Wendy

 

Hi, my name is Wendy and I am writing this testimonial for myself and my younger sister, Kristie who has a disability. A few days before the 29th June 2018, my doctor made an appointment for myself and Kristie and said we 'had to go'. At the beginning, i was not sure if I really wanted to begin a weight loss journey or even increase my bodily movement. After visiting Rhiannon on the 29th, I figured that I would do the core exercises and stretches given to me, but that they would not do much at all. Fast forward two months and after at the next appointment with Rhiannon, Kristie and myself had lost two centimeters and two kilos. This was GREAT news for both of us. This was the start of my weight loss journey and the start of a new lifestyle. Kristie and I both walk every morning before food and do our exercises most evenings. With the ongoing support and assistance from Rhiannon, I have lost 14 kilos to date and 5 centimeters. Kristie has lost 14 centimeters and 6 kilos. We will be continuing to visit Rhiannon in the following year, with mum and will be updating this testimonial every so often. We cannot thank Rhiannon enough for her help and support and recommend her services to as many people as possible. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
