Actively Aging

Improving Your Health Through Activity And Education

As you age, common home chores such as reaching, lifting or gardening can become difficult if you no longer have the physical strength or flexibility. This weakness and stiffness can lead to injuries, incapacity and a loss of independence. But the good news is that to avoid this situation, all you need to do is add some structured activity into your daily life in the form of specific exercises as well as prolonged, sustained movement such as walking or swimming. Essentially, what keeps you active is ‘activity’ itself!

By committing a small amount of time everyday to some form of structured exercise, you’re investing in a ‘superannuation fund’ of health and wellbeing for a happier, healthier, independent future. You’ll feel better in every way!

Contact Proactive Physiotherapy Clinic today and find out how our fun and interactive exercise programs can become an important part of your ongoing health and well-being.

Proactive Physiotherapy is open for face-to-face visits and group exercise classes.

Your safety is our top priority. We have developed a protocol to ensure that all government recommendations including physical distancing and cleaning are adhered to. We have COVID-safe cleaning procedures in place, we are vetting everyone who comes into the clinic for any symptoms of illness, and we are maintaining social distancing where it is appropriate and possible.

To help minimise any risks, please do not come into the clinic unless you are a patient, parent of a minor who is a patient, or translator or carer for a patient attending the clinic. If you do not wish to come into the clinic, but still require some assistance, please call 40840602 to organise a telehealth appointment.

We look forward to assisting our clients, old and new, in these unusual times and will temper our approach to community safety as the COVID situation fluctuates.

Thank you for your understanding.

Julie Faulks and the entire Proactive Physio team.
