All patients attending SWMS have access to physical activity interventions to help them lose weight.
At SWMS we are aware that patients have variable levels of physical mobility and fitness. The activity advice is tailored to support patients with very low activity levels to those already physically active.
Get Started Activity Classes are weekly classes led by the SWMS physiotherapists, designed to increase fitness in a safe and supported environment. There are two class intensities designed to meet all levels of ability - chair based classes or a moderate intensity circuit class. These classes can provide the confidence and ability to access community based activity programs.
Physiotherapy assessments are 1:1 assessments for those who have physical or emotional barriers to activity which makes physically activity challenging. The physiotherapists will provide individualised home activity exercises for those who cannot access Get Started Classes or community based activities.
