What is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist?

An Accredited Exercise Physiologist is a clinical exercise specialist. They are university degree qualified health professionals who are experts in using exercise to treat musculoskeletal and other health conditions. Research clearly proves that supervised structured exercise plays an essential role in the management of many conditions including;

  • Spinal (back and neck) pain
  • Sports injuries, sprains and strains
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Shoulder, hip and knee pain
  • Other conditions including diabetes, weight management and cardiovascular disease

Your First Exercise Physiology session – the Biomechanical Assessment

In your initial consultation your exercise physiologist will talk with you to understand your current health and establish goals for your rehab. They will identify the underlying cause of your condition using cutting-edge video analysis and movement screens like the Functional Movement Systems (FMS/SFMA) to highlight movement imbalances and clarify your priorities for correction. They will help you understand how these imbalances are impacting your movement and contributing to your problems, then design a personalised exercise program to correct them.
