Innovative exercise centre for people with spinal cord injury or a neurological disability opens in Canberra. The NeuroMoves gym offers a range of exercise services tailored to work around specific disabilities to enhance function and mobility. “Each person sets individual goals and works with a team of therapists,” NeuroMoves manager, Leah Sholer said. “We offer a fun environment and way for people with disability to get out, work out and socialise,” she said. “NeuroMoves can help those with a physical or neurological condition, such as spinal cord injury, acquired brain injury, stroke, transverse myelitis, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease and cerebral palsy.”
The gym, which is located at the Flynn Community Hub is a registered NDIS provider.
Spinal Cord Injuries Australia (SCIA) members can take advantage of a free consultation to see how NeuroMoves can benefit them with the exercise regime. Non-members with a disability, their immediate family and carers can also join for free.
