AAP is Work Cover accredited to undertake rehabilitation services. The difference between AAP’s and typical commercial gymnasiums is that AAP have staff that are Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEP) ensuring they have relevant clinical experience. The facilities are set up for rehabilitative purposes; ensuring patients can undertake their sessions in a comfortable and professional setting with relevant equipment.
All assessments, personal one on one exercise sessions and supervised group sessions for WorkCover patients are quoted to case managers on an individual case basis. AAP encourage case managers to approve these sessions as they are crucial to ensure that safe and effective exercise is prescribed to the injured worker, while assessments allow progress of the injured worker to be effectively measured and reported back to case managers.
Gym memberships at AAP is also available to WorkCover patients after approval from their case manager is given.
