What are exercise physiologists?

An exercise physiologist is an allied health professional who develops fitness and exercise programs for preventing and managing chronic diseases and injuries to ensure that the patient recovers their peak physical health. People with chronic injuries or illnesses like heart disease, diabetes and cancer can benefit from this type of therapy.

Type 2 diabetes mellitus, obesity, cardiovascular and pulmonary disease, musculoskeletal injuries, cancer and mental health are all conditions that remain a prevalent issue in Australia despite the advances in treatment guidelines. Lack of exercise can exacerbate the delirious effects of these conditions.

Our exercise physiologists will work with you to develop an exercise program tailored to your individual needs to help you take control of your health. We’re going to go through with you the exercise interventions you should consider implementing to facilitate injury prevention and lead you to follow a healthier lifestyle.

Benefits of Exercise Physiology

Professional athletes and people who regularly exercise not only look healthier but have more energy and a considerably reduced risk of developing any cardiovascular conditions.

Health professionals and researchers are struck by the similarities between the signs of ageing and having a sedentary lifestyle which has led them to conclude that exercise can not only improve your fitness but also slow down your symptoms of ageing. Below you can find a list of just how beneficial exercise physiology can be:

Learn more about your body

A session with one of our exercise physiologists will not only teach you about body parts you never knew existed but will allow you to understand how to maximize their function using a variety of conditioning exercises.

Improve psychological health

One of the biggest benefits of exercise physiology is its impact on your psychological well-being. Multiple studies have proven the outstanding benefits of exercise on your mental health. Our specialists will not only help you achieve your physical goals but will also help with your psychological development by improving:

  • Your mood
  • Coping skills
  • Clarity
  • Cognitive function NDIS funding

Improved cardiovascular health

The term physiology generally refers to talking about the biology of our body – specifically the things we can’t see. Exercise physiology poses numerous benefits to our own physiology, most notably to our cardiovascular health.

Regular exercise can help increase the size of your heart muscle and allow it to function more effectively. In turn, this will help reduce blood pressure and blood sugar levels, improve your cholesterol levels, and decrease your risk of cardiovascular complications.

Learn proper technique

An adequate technique can make or break the function of the exercise. Poor technique when performing exercises or using sports equipment can lead to injury, and pain and essentially waste your time. Our exercise physiologists will use research-based methods to help improve your techniques and optimise your performance.

You’re your own boss

Your exercise physiologist is not your personal trainer. They will not be expecting you to show up at 5 am and shout instructions at you. Instead, they will help you manage your condition through physical rehabilitation. Your individualised management strategies will be tailored to your conditions to ultimately give you a greater sense of control over your body.

Is Exercise And Sports
Physiology Right For You?

Aside from athletic development for those who want to improve their performance during sports, exercise physiology can be used to assist those who:

  • Have an underlying chronic condition – Living with a chronic medical condition can impact your life in multiple ways, from medication management to avoiding your risk of comorbidities. Our accredited exercise physiologists understand these complexities and will prescribe safe and effective rehabilitation programs to help improve your condition.
  • Have chronic pain – Pain that persists for longer than 3 months is referred to as chronic pain. This can occur following a traumatic injury or due to an underlying condition. Our experts will work with you to increase your strength, function, and mobility to help improve your quality of life.
  • Recovering from surgery – Once you have had your intervention with a physiotherapist, they may refer you to an exercise physiologist to enhance your recovery and teach you a variety of exercises to prevent re-injury.
  • Unhappy with their body changes during pregnancy – Exercise is recommended during all phases of life, including pregnancy. However, wrong techniques can prove to be detrimental to you and your baby. Our exercise physiologists will devise various strength and conditioning programs that are safe for both you and your baby.
  • Athletes who want to improve their strength and conditioning – Our experts have the skills and knowledge to devise musculoskeletal rehabilitation programs for athletes who wish to recover from injury faster and learn how to prevent further injury.

  • Lower back pain – Exercise can help strengthen your back, relieve pain, and possibly reduce the need for medications.
  • Weight loss – both aerobic and anaerobic exercises are fantastic to help you lose weight. Weight loss can considerably reduce your risk of developing diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, and musculoskeletal injuries.

This clinic goes above and beyond and I cannot recommend this place enough. I’ve had a grade 3 sprain to my ankle in the past and the physios here expedited my recovery so that I can get back into sports safely. My ankle is stronger than ever and there’s no pain at all despite missing an ATFL. I’ve also had a recent hand fracture and Allen particularly took his time and care to ensure my hand was well supported in the cast. Ifs currently 2 weeks since the injury and I barely feel the pain as the fracture continues to heal. The cherry on top is their friendly nature and that they genuinely care about your recovery.

This is a really great allied health practice. The physios are excellent. They are knowledgeable and friendly and very considerate of comfort. They have treated my busted ankle and my neck and back pain. I used to get the most excruciating headaches but thanks to the physios the pain is so much better and I hardly ever use paracetamol any more. Go and see the team. You won’t regret it!! =)
