Where the expertise of an Exercise Physiologist can help
Exercise Physiology is a specialised field that focuses on how the body responds and adapts to physical activity. We can help with:
Medical Conditions: People with chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, or respiratory issues may benefit from exercise physiology.
Rehabilitation: Individuals recovering from injuries or surgeries often require tailored exercise programs to regain strength, flexibility, and function.
Weight Management: For those aiming to lose or gain weight, an Exercise Physiologist can create a personalised exercise plan that complements dietary strategies.
Athletic Performance: Athletes may consult Exercise Physiologists who can assess their current fitness level, identify areas for improvement, and design training programs to enhance performance while minimising the risk of injury.
Chronic Pain Management: Exercise Physiologists work with individuals experiencing conditions such as arthritis or back pain, developing tailored exercise programs to improve mobility and reduce pain.
Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing: to evaluate cardiovascular and respiratory function during exercise and develop targeted interventions where required.
Stress Management & Mental Health: Exercise Physiologists can collaborate with mental health professionals to design exercise programs that complement psychological interventions.
Preventive Health: By engaging in regular physical activity, individuals can reduce their risk of developing various chronic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers.
Functional Movement Screening: to identify movement patterns that may contribute to injury and prescribe corrective exercises.
Lifestyle Modification: Guidance on incorporating regular physical activity into daily routines, along with advice on nutrition and stress management.
Exercise Physiology is about leveraging the principles of exercise science to promote health, prevent and manage diseases, and enhance overall well-being. It's a holistic approach that considers individual needs, medical history, and goals to create personalised and effective exercise plans.

Frequently asked questions
What appointment should I book?
If you are a new client, you have a new issue or you haven't seen us in a while choose an "Initial appointment". This allows the clinician more time to go through your issues and formulate the plan to get you better faster!
Do I need a doctor's referral?
No. You do not need a doctor's referral. However, if your condition is complex and chronic, you may qualify for some medicare funded physiotherapy and this will require your GP's assistance. Simply ask them to help organise a Medicare Care Plan to assist with your physiotherapy costs.
What will happen during my first appointment?
The Exercise Physiologist will ask you questions about your goals, your injury, your surgery, etc. They will assess your posture and your movement habits. They will then create a plan for moving forward and start some treatment or prescribe a movement if time allows.
Do you have hicaps/health insurance onsite?
Yes. Simply bring in your card for processing at the time of your consultation.
Do you bulk bill?
We have recently introduced a bulk billing care pathway for those referred under a Medicare Care Plan. After your initial consultation, you will be given the option to use one of our physiotherapy assistants to complete your rehabilitation at a bulk-billed rate. To learn more, ask at your initial consultation.
Do I need to bring anything with me to my assessment?
Simply bring any scan or X-ray results, instructions from your surgeon, and be dressed for movement or prepared to undress for assessment. Bring your questions and a clear intention of what you are hoping to achieve with our help.
How many sessions will I need?
This is highly dependent on your goals and your starting place. Chronic conditions will require more work and more visits. Relatively new injuries are usually more responsive to treatment and we work off a 4 - 6 visit program. The frequency and amount of sessions are highly related to your goals and your ability to work independently or not.
What will my treatment involve?
Your treatment usually involves a blend of mindset drills, emotional awareness exercises, movement prescriptions, breathwork, hands-on manual therapy, etc.
