Exercise Physiology

Manage your health with movement!

Accredited exercise physiologists specialise in clinical exercise interventions for people with a broad range of health issues, both physical and psychological. Those people may be at risk of developing, or have existing, medical conditions and injuries. The aims of exercise physiology interventions are to prevent or manage acute, sub- acute or chronic disease or injury, and assist in restoring one’s optimal physical function, health or wellness. These interventions are exercise-based and include health and physical activity education, advice and support and lifestyle modification with a strong focus on achieving behavioural change.

Our exercise physiologist has over 7 years of experience, and will help get you back to moving with confidence, enjoying activities of daily living, and hobbies/sports.
