Logan City Council Leisure Centres

Individual Services

Exercise can be used as medicine to help to prevent and manage a wide range of chronic conditions. If you’re living with a chronic condition, injury or illness, an Accredited Exercise Physiologist can help you get moving again. They understand the challenges and will work with you (and your doctor) to prescribe safe and effective exercise interventions.

We offer a range of allied health programs and classes that will enable you to lead a healthier life.

Work Cover

Exercise Physiologists play an important role in helping workers stay at work or return to work after an injury.

They can help in the following ways:

  • Treat and manage the injury/illness
  • Assist with rehabilitation strategies at home and at work
  • Support people to remain at work or return to work in a timely manner
  • Provide clear communication with treating medical doctors/specialists, the employer and all relevant parties involved in the claim
  • Provide information to minimise risk in the future

Exercise Physiologists can provide rehabilitation on a range of work-related injuries. Their specialised treatment can bridge the gap between the acute stages of injury and a safe and sustainable return to work.

Pre-employment functional assessment (PEFA)

A pre-employment functional assessment (PEFA) is an evaluation of an individual’s physical capacity to safely perform the critical demands of their employment role. The role may be proposed or existing.

Hiring the right candidate for the job

PEFA assists employers in identifying if a potential or existing employee has the capacity to perform the functional demands of a role.

Meeting OHS legislative requirements

PEFA focuses on assessing an individual’s specific ability to safely perform the requirements of a role. It is more targeted than a ‘general’ screen of movement and subjective factors.

Help identify risk

PEFA will improve an employer’s ability to identify functional deficits that can be appropriately managed through risk management practices.
