Exercise Physiologists are university qualified allied health professionals. They program, deliver and evaluate safe and effective, evidence-based exercise interventions to assist in the management of a variety of medical conditions, injuries and disabilities.
Exercise Physiologists work with a range of people; from healthy individuals looking to increase their exercise, to those with medical conditions that may benefit from exercise management. Some categories of conditions commonly treated by Exercise Physiologists include, but are not limited to:
- Mental Health
They conduct clinical exercise assessments, which allow for the monitoring and confirmation that individuals have a safe response to exercise. Exercise Physiologists will also provide education around exercise to enhance confidence in the ability to regain control and independence.
You do not need a referral to access Exercise Physiology services! Your private health insurance may provide cover, however, we recommend you check your insurance policy to confirm. Alternatively, if you are someone who has a chronic health condition, you may be eligible to access the service through Medicare and we suggest you discuss this with your GP. As an allied health profession, Exercise Physiology is also funded and accessible through the NDIS, DVA, work cover and third party schemes.
If you are interested in finding out about how Exercise Physiology may help you, we invite you to call the clinic or book online!
