Allied Health Case Management Description
Soon after starting a new fitness regimen there is an adaptation phase. Whether your program is designed to improve stability, agility, strength, cardiovascular fitness or lose weight, your body and mind will need a period of time to adjust.
Adaptation can stress muscles and the mind, requiring additional support. If this occurs you may require intervention from various medical and allied health providers such as your general practitioner, physiotherapist, massage therapist, podiatrist, dietitian and/or psychologist.
You personal trainer is in an ideal position to provide allied health case management services and liaise with your treating medical and allied health providers to ensure you receive the best combined approach.
Your personal trainer can make enquiries on your behalf, explain your program and goals, discuss suitable exercises, incorporate exercises prescribed by your other providers, intervene early, monitor your progress and responses, provide observations, advocate your interests and explain to all parties, the approach being undertaken by your team.
By engaging your personal trainer to attend your relevant medical and allied health appointments, you can achieve a uniform and consistant approach to achieving your goals.
