Atkins Health “Secret Recipe”

To understand the way the Atkins Squad like to work is really quite simple. We work off capitalising on three key principles when assessing and 3 key principles when prescribing. When assessing we are looking for the needs of our clients, the systems that are affected (neurological/ musculoskeletal/ skeletal/ hormonal/ psychological etc)  and the movement patterns that occur as a result. We then educate our Friends (clients) on what we have found. Educating them up, to make them the professional at their own condition.

Next is the exercise prescription. We then create an individualised, personalised program with both visual and written aids to capitalise on the three main principles on ensuring results. They are: Compliance – a program is only effective if it gets done, Quality & Technique – a movement (exercise) is only as effective as the delivery, and progression – a program is only able to be designed for where your currently at it is impossible for us to know how quickly or effective the exercises will be for the individual so monitoring progression to speed up slow down or completely change our tact is extremely important to ensure results.

And that’s it, that’s the secret to the Atkins Health Squad’s constant success for our friends (clients).

Tasman Health Care will have it’s very own rehabilitation Suite situated at 115 Nerang St (just next door) by mid 2020 where you will be able to team up with Atkins Health on your treatment journey. In the mean time Atkins Health Physiologists can be found at Runaway Bay, Robina, Benowa, Canungra and Varsity Lakes.
