Building Healthy Communities - Exact Physiology “together we’re better”
January 30, 2019
My health for life partners with health professionals within our region to provide patients and individuals the opportunity to participate in an evidence-based lifestyle modification program.
Exact Physiology is a multidisciplinary team consisting of accredited Exercise Physiologists, Accredited Practicing Dietitian and Allied Health Assistants. They provide tailored meal and exercise plans to individuals with chronic health conditions.
Their participants that go through the My Health for Life program all report loving the accountability. They check their progress and strategies if things haven’t worked as well as they wanted, then they share ideas, past experiences and even team up to support each other.
Fellow peers in the program have also been strong influencers for changes to individual health behaviours as positive relationships develop with others who are in a similar situation.
Exact Physiology philosophy is “together we’re better” which is a notion to having a group of participants who share similar goals in order help each other achieve individual outcomes. They also run specialised classes focusing on diabetes and hydrotherapy. The My health for life program allows Exact Physiology to provide more information to a larger range of diverse people which is more cost effective. Enabling them to promote positive health behaviours to better manage chronic conditions through diet and exercise techniques.
The Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN supports local providers to present the The My Health for Life program. This is funded by Queensland government which makes it free for all participants.
