Exercise Physiology

An Exercise Physiologist improves the general fitness (strength, cardiovascular, flexibility and posture) of a patient who has become deconditioned due to their spinal condition or musculoskeletal injury.

Exercise physiologists have post graduate university qualifications in exercise therapy for individuals recovering from injury, pre or post operatively, or to assist in chronic medical conditions such as Diabetes.

Most patients are keen to improve their quality of life through exercise, but most will lack the knowledge, structure and guidance to start. An Exercise Physiologist can instil confidence through education so the deconditioning process is reversed without making your injury or condition worse.

For patients with private health insurance, please check with your health fund to see if you are covered for exercise physiology.  Workcover may also cover fees, with prior approval from insurer.  Please speak to your treating practitioner or phone 9596 7211 for further information.
