EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY

Exercise Physiologists (EP’s) are university qualified practitioners who champion the field of exercise prescription. Exercise Physiologists specialise in the treatment and management of both acute injuries and chronic disease. Exercise Physiologists draw on a thorough understanding of your body and individual condition to prescribe safe and appropriate movements so that you can function better, sooner and for longer.

The scientific research supporting movement and exercise therapies is overwhelming and is changing the landscape of our current medical practices as we learn more about the incredible power of the brain, body and mind to heal itself faster with more lasting effects. To stay on top of the latest medical science EP’s must adhere to strict on-going learning requirements in order to remain accredited.
