Exercise Physiology is a healthcare profession that specialises in exercise therapy. Accredited exercise physiologists (EPs) hold a four-year university degree and then go on to specialise in a particular field of choice.
Here at Infinite Health, Exercise Physiologists work closely along-side Physiotherapists in carrying out and developing exercise programs for rehabilitation, management and prevention of sports injuries and chronic diseases.
WHAT CAN A EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGIST HELP ME WITH?
1. Optimal Biomechanics: EP’s can teach you how to move as efficiently as possible; whether it’s for everyday life, at work doing manual handling, or playing a sport. This means you will be able to function properly without placing an excessive strain on your joints and muscles.
2. Optimal Performance: EP’s are experts in flexibility, mobility and strength training. Using their in-depth knowledge of this and how the body is supposed to move at its most optimal level, they can help to improve your performance for your chosen sport.
3. Reduced injury risk: At Infinite Health, our Exercise Physiologists specialise in injury risk movement screens, meaning they can assess your level of risk of injury and uncover areas needed to improve upon in order to reduce this. Our EP’s can then use specific corrective exercises for you, based on your problem areas, to improve your level of injury risk.
4. Elite athletes/weekend warriors: If you want to take your training to your next level, to see if your training is appropriate and suitable, or even to see where your current baseline level is at then our Exercise Physiologists can help.
5. Chronic Disease Management: Our EP's also have plenty of experience in helping clients who have diabetes, pre-diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, osteopenia, arthritis, obesity and weight loss.
AEPs are eligible to register with Medicare Australia, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs and WorkCover and are recognised by most private health insurers.
