How does exercise physiology help you?

Exercise Physiology is client focused exercise based care. Just like medicines are prescribed for various conditions, Exercise Physiologists use exercise as medicine to address your underlying problem, so it’s time to get your body moving! We take the time to listen and understand what is causing your pain or pathology, what it is stopping you from doing and getting you back on track.

What is exercise physiology?

AEP’s (Accredited Exercise Physiologist) are university qualified professionals that use exercise as medicine to help manage or prevent clinical conditions, reduce pain, strengthen your body, improve your functionality and decrease sedentary activity.

An AEP has extensive knowledge of the pathophysiology of many different clinical conditions, as well as knowledge of how different modes, frequencies and intensities of exercise can have positive physiological changes within the body.
