What does an exercise physiologist do?

An Exercise Physiologist is a university qualified, allied health professional who has studied the physiology of exercise and it’s impact on chronic conditions, injuries and performance.

They take into account any diagnoses you have from a GP, medical specialist or physiotherapist, make a thorough physical assessment of your strengths and weaknesses, and prescribe specific exercises to improve your health. Exercise physiologists identify any movement patterns – such as bending, lifting, posture or gait – that may have caused or could impede your recovery.

All our Exercise Physiologists are  Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) and NDIS registered. They have many years experience using exercise therapy to improve daily functioning and health for people of all ages and abilities.
