Exercise Physiology in Newcastle NSW
Exercise physiology involves the prescription of tailored exercise programs to help manage an array of injuries and health conditions. Exercise physiologists (EPs) are allied health professionals who have completed at least 4 years of university education and are accredited by Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA).
Exercise physiology services can be accessed directly and rebates are available from most health funds. Your GP may also refer you to us for exercise physiology, usually as part of an Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan, which may subsidise part of the treatment cost.
Exercise Physiology for Medical Conditions
Exercise physiologists are highly trained in human physiology and possess a thorough understanding of the metabolic changes associated with various medical conditions. It is increasingly common to be referred to an exercise physiologist for management of the following chronic conditions:
- Heart disease.
- Peripheral vascular disease.
- High blood pressure.
- Multiple Sclerosis.
- Parkinson’s Disease.
And many others!
Exercise Rehabilitation of Injuries
Exercise physiologists often play a key role in rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries.
If you’ve had an acute (recent) injury, it’s usually best to see one of our physiotherapists for a diagnosis and treatment. However, for more long-term, chronic or recurring injuries, exercise physiologists are perfectly placed to provide an optimal rehabilitation program.
