What is an Exercise Physiologist?
All our Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEP’s) are university qualified allied health professionals. We specialise in the prescription and delivery of safe and effective exercise and lifestyle modification programs for the prevention and management of chronic diseases, disability and injuries.
We prescribe exercise as medicine across metabolic, neurological & musculoskeletal conditions as well as a variety of other health circumstances including oncology, mental health/wellbeing, respiratory diseases & human development across the lifespan from childhood to old age.
Keep reading below for some health related examples & further details below (including cancer management, joint pain, diabetes).
Accredited Exercise Physiologists are recognised by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners as the most appropriate allied health professionals to prescribe exercise.
The profession of Exercise Physiologists is governed by Exercise & Sport Science Australia (ESSA). Our association assures that we meet strict professional standards, ethics, accreditation, and continuing education.
Our services are claimable under compensable schemes such as Medicare and covered by most private health insurers. When it comes to the prescription of exercise, Accredited Exercise Physiologists are the most qualified professionals in Australia.
Do I need an Exercise Physiologist?
Just as you should only trust a licensed builder to work on your house, you should trust an accredited exercise professional to prescribe a safe exercise program for your body. An AEP will assess, educate & guide you on how to reach your health and fitness goals. It is recommended by numerous organisations & research studies to seek expert advice from a qualified health professional prior to commencing an exercise program for the purpose of managing an injury or acute/chronic disease (such as a broken bone or diabetes). We use an evidence based practice approach to create a safe & effective exercise regime for you.
Our expertise can also be valuable for those wanting to continue safe physical activity whilst recovering from an illness or injury, if you want to know how to move in the most effective way to achieve your goals or if you just need a little help getting started, you may benefit from seeing an AEP.
