What is an Exercise Physiologist?
Exercise Physiologists are university qualified Allied Health Professionals who provide specialist treatment through exercise prescription. They have extensive knowledge of the human body and movement analysis for special populations and injury management.
An Exercise Physiologist is a qualified specialist in the management and treatment of chronic injuries and also deliver strategies for disease prevention. The main benefit of engaging an Exercise Physiologist is that they educate clients on the most effective methods to manage an injury long term. This is achieved through exercise prescription that is specifically designed to the individual.
