Exercise Physiology

About

We have a team of Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) on hand who are available to provide exercise and lifestyle therapies for the prevention and management of chronic disease, injury and disability.

AEPs provide support for people with conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, mental health problems, cancer, arthritis, pulmonary disease and more. Our AEPs are registered with Medicare Australia, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs and WorkCover and are recognised by most private health insurers.

Our Exercise Physiologists can assist you to:
  • Overcome persisting pain caused by injury or overuse
  • Improve your heart health
  • Rehabilitate following a cardiac event
  • Control your diabetes
  • Prevent pre-diabetes from progressing to full diabetes
  • Improve your recovery following cancer treatment
  • Improve your general health and wellbeing.

AEPs also provide training in safe manual handling; perform functional assessments; carry out sub-maximal and maximal fitness tests; perform body composition tests and musculoskeletal assessments; and provide lifestyle education to help people manage their health conditions. Source
