What is Exercise Physiology?
Not many people know what an Exercise Physiologist is, we are often mistaken for physiotherapists or personal trainers. In fact Exercise Physiology is the study of how the body responds to exercise when injured or in the presence of chronic disease. Accredited Exercise Physiologists are university qualified and recognised by the government as allied health professionals, who provide exercise and lifestyle therapies to help you rehabilitate your injuries, best manage your chronic conditions and reach your health and fitness goals.
Accredited Exercise Physiologists are required to meet high professional standards and complete continued professional development in order to be re-accredited annually with Exercise & Sports Science Australia. Accreditation is vital to maintain registration with Medicare, the Department of Veterans' Affairs, Private Health Insurers and Work Cover.
