Keeping active

Posted July 07, 2022

Physiotherapy plays an important role in helping people achieve an active lifestyle. Being active means different things for each person we support.

David Williams loves his new exercise routine. After two years of doing the same thing day in and day out, he needed something new to keep him motivated, happy and healthy.

‘It was getting boring,’ David says, ‘but my new exercises make it fun again.’ David’s physiotherapy assessments are funded through his NDIS package. His Li-Ve Tas team worked with his support coordinator to get the extra funding for his recent assessment. To help David stay interested and engaged, the new exercise program is based on keeping fit so he can do the things he enjoys most.

‘I feel stronger when I do my exercises’ David says, ‘they help me stay strong so I can play basketball with my friends and go swimming every week.’
