I confirm the information I have provided in this form is accurate. I acknowledge the risks involved when participating in exercise for treatment of my physical condition and/or for achievement of my personal health and fitness goals. I have gained appropriate advice from my Doctor (if necessary) and I confirm that I am safe to partake in exercise. I will inform my treating practitioner of any previous or pre-existing medical conditions that may affect my ability to exercise. I will inform my treating practitioner of any medication that I am currently administering to ensure safe and sustainable exercise is prescribed. I understand my treating Practitioner may take my blood pressure and/or heart rate prior to, during and/or after exercise to ensure exercise is regulated within desired limits.
I understand an initial assessment will be conducted at my first appointment to confirm my current health status with subsequent reviews to be performed at regular intervals to assess my progress. I have been informed and give consent for my Practitioner to contact my other Health Professionals including GP and/or Allied Health to report progress and ensure a holistic and informed treatment plan is developed.
I understand participating in this exercise program may improve my movement quality, and pain free range of motion as well as improve my cardiovascular fitness and everyday functioning.
I understand that I may experience some degree of discomfort during some of the exercises, particularly in the form of breathlessness and a feeling of fatigue in the legs or arms but the exercises will generally be within the my normal range of physical activity. I will decrease or stop exercise if I note abnormal discomfort and will report this to my treating practitioner immediately.
I understand I will be exercising in a clinic with gym equipment and I will ensure to take care when moving around the facility. In the event of an injury my Practitioner will ensure appropriate First Aid care is administered and appropriate medical treatment is made available.
It is my understanding and I have been informed that there exists the remote possibility during exercise of adverse changes including, but not limited to, abnormal blood pressure, fainting, dizziness, disorders of heart rhythm, and in very rare instances heart attack, stroke, or even death. I further understand and I have been informed that there exists the risk of bodily injury including, but not limited to, injuries to the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints of the body. Every effort, I have been told, will be made to minimise these occurrences by assessment of my condition prior to exercise, supervision during exercise and by my own careful control of exercise efforts. I fully understand the risks associated with exercise, including the risk of bodily injury, heart attack, stroke or even death, but knowing these risks, it is my desire to participate as herein indicated.
I understand that exercise will be completed under the supervision of my Practitioner when at the Clinic in a one on one, or in a group based setting depending on my personal preference and recommended therapeutic requirements. I understand my Practitioner may also prescribe me home exercises to independently perform. I adhere to the precautions outlined by my Practitioner to ensure exercises are performed safely.
