ENHANCED PRIMARY CARE PLANS AND CHRONIC DISEASE MANAGEMENT
A chronic disease is considered to be any ongoing health condition that has been present for more than six months. The number of Australians that are suffering from chronic disease and chronic health issues is growing every year, with the number of Australians suffering from chronic disease expected to reach a staggering twelve million by the end of 2021.
The most common types of chronic disease, and which account for over ninety percent of chronic disease cases, are:
- Back pain
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder
- Diabetes (I and II)
- Heart Disease
- Kidney Disease
The list above is only small, and there are dozens of other conditions that are also considered to be chronic disease concerns. One of the only therapies that has been proven, in the most rigorous of research, to help to manage chronic disease is regular physical activity and exercise.
