Exercise Right for Kids has been developed to help inform parents, coaches, teachers, friends and family of children who may be living with, or at risk of, a chronic condition to exercise safely for a healthier life.
Children should not be held back from being physically active because of any condition, disability or injury. In fact, exercise can play an important role in helping them manage their quality of life and help ease or treat their condition.
Each condition comes with individual traits and complexities, hence the importance for children to exercise right for who they are.
It is crucial that you get in touch with your local Accredited Exercise Physiologist who can provide expert care and exercise prescription for your child’s condition and physical activity needs.
Together let’s get all Australian kids active and healthy!
Exercise can help children living with a range of chronic conditions, illnesses, and disabilities to improve their quality of life.
Exercise Physiologists are specially qualified to understand the complexities around working with children living with illness and injury. They will work with doctors and other allied health professionals to ensure your child’s safety and well-being. They also have the skills and knowledge to prescribe effective exercise interventions that are individualised to your child’s specific needs.
