NDIS - What We Treat
NDIS - What our NDIS Penrith Providers Treat
Our physiotherapy and exercise physiology practitioners in Penrith focus on the management of many conditions and disabilities for those with NDIS support. We focus on the symptoms and the future health risks many individuals with disability may suffer from - almost all of these are related to being sedentary and not participating in physical activity and exercise.
NDIS management of autism spectrum disorder
Much of the research shows that exercise helps to manage both the symptoms of autism spectrum disorders and the future health risks associated with sedentary behaviour. These symptoms that may benfit from regular exercise include improved attention and concentration, reduced negative and repetitive behaviours, improved social and emotional regulation and skills. Further, individuals with autism also find balance, postural stability, gait, joint flexibility, coordination and movement speed challenging. These challenges can be reduced by increasing levels of physical activity and may lead to better: overall physical endurance (e.g strength and aerobic fitness), independence and function for daily tasks and improved self-confidence and self-esteem.
