What is Exercise Physiology?
Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) are allied health professionals who work to prescribe exercise to help people with injuries, persistent pain, chronic disease, depression and weight management.
How do we do this?
We first take an extensive history to learn about your current health and physical activity status. This can include information about medical conditions, surgeries, previous injuries, medications, diet and stressful influences. Making your exercise physiologist aware of these influences may help us keep you safe and help your treatment to excel faster. We look at a range of factors such as posture, muscular strength and endurance and much more to provide you with a plan to get you on the way to your highest potential health. Your treatment is individualised and targeted to reduce pain and promote movement. We will discuss exercise options as well as a range of other strategies aimed to get you on track as quickly as possible. Lastly you will be given a treatment plan which will help you become the master of your own health.
Is Exercise Physiology safe?
Exercise physiology is generally very safe. Our team of health professionals here at No Boundaries Health and Osteopathy are highly trained at recognizing patients at risk of complications that could arise. We conduct a thorough pre-screen before initiating treatment. If you have any questions or concerns our team will be happy to discuss these with you beginning the consultation.
