Finding the best dietitian and nutritionist Melbourne

Becon Health is especially proud of offering dietary health services. With professional nutritional practice not being regulated by the law in Australia, it is essential that you get help only from the accredited professionals. Finding a nutritionist Melbourne the traditional way may, thus, prove to be a way more difficult task than you imagined.

Not so at Becon Health. Our nutritionists are skilled professionals, accredited by the Nutrition Society of Australia (NSA). It is the only body in Australia whose credentials are recognised nationwide and, as such, a guarantee that your nutritionist is a true professional.

The situation is similar for people looking for a dietitian Melbourne. Dietitians are another group of professionals specializing in healthy eating, but their scope of work is somewhat different than that of a nutritionist’s. Firstly, dietitians are qualified to provide medical advice. Accredited dietitians (see below) help people suffering from various health conditions, including diabetes and heart diseases.

How to know if a dietitian is accredited?

The Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA) is the only institution in Australia that issues accreditation to dietitians. The APD credential guarantees two things. First, that the dietitian holding it has at least a Bachelor degree in a related field and second, that they participate in ongoing education programs. All APDs are obligated to provide impartial service and hold true to the DAA Code of Professional Conduct and Statement of Ethical Practice.

The APD credential is recognised by the Australian Government, Medicare, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and most private health funds.

What are physio exercises?

Many health conditions call for physiotherapists’ help, as a healthy lifestyle takes both exercise and diet into account. At Becon Health, you will find a number of skilled physios specialised to deal with injuries, illnesses, disabilities, and sports.

Physiotherapists do much more than just design exercises for their patients. They also offer advice and education on how to improve your overall lifestyle. Those professionals maintain health of people of all ages, facilitate recovery, and enable their patients to operate their lives as conveniently as possible.

Physiotherapy benefits all age groups as it is aimed at improving a range of conditions including:

  •   Neuromusculoskeletal (i.e., back pain, arthritis, sports injuries) 

  •   Cardiovascular (i.e., chronic heart disease, post-heart attack rehabilitation)

  •   Cardiorespiratory (i.e., asthma, cystic fibrosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)

  •   Neurological (i.e., stroke, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord damage)

  •   Orthopaedic (i.e., osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, rehabilitation after orthopaedic surgeries) 

  •   Paediatric (i.e., supporting a child’s development, preventing conditions) 

  •   Pain (management and prevention of pain) 

  •   Occupational health (support of the workers’ health, reduction of safety risks, prevention of work-related diseases) 

  •   Cancer

  •   Sports

Physiotherapist apply a range of approaches to tackle the challenge. In some cases, exercising is not enough, while in others it is not even possible.

Some conditions, notably those causing pain, call for different methods. E.g., physios may also address acupuncture in order to help manage sprains and strains, neurological conditions, and arthritis. A physiotherapist may also apply hydrotherapy to help patients with orthopaedic conditions, sports injuries, and different types of pain. Finally, physios also promote healthy and active ageing among older people. Physiotherapists often work in residential aged care settings and pay home visits to their patients.

What is occupational therapy? 

Occupational therapists are health professionals specialising in helping patients regain their ability to perform everyday activities. The patients may have lost those abilities for a number of reasons, notably mental, emotionally disabling, and physical conditions.

An occupational therapist does not work alone. They are a part of a rehabilitation team that usually includes a psychologist and a physical therapist. In some cases, a physical therapist or a social worker is also included.
