Exercise Physiology is the use of clinical exercise prescription for the treatment and rehabilitation of a broad range of chronic diseases and musculoskeletal injuries.
Exercise Physiologists take a holistic approach to disease and injury management, with a focus on achieving a Client’s personal goals and Return to Work goals. CHG’s Exercise Physiologists are university qualified allied health professionals who hold their Accreditation with Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA).
The chronic diseases an Exercise Physiologist can treat include:
- High Blood Pressure
- Musculoskeletal Pain
- Cardiovascular Diseases
In a workplace injury, an Exercise Physiologist could be involved after the acute stage of healing, when the body tissues can be safely loaded with resistance.
Exercise Physiology services can be delivered privately with private health insurance rebates, as well as through Medicare via a chronic disease management plan, and also as part of the multidisciplinary treatment approach in a workplace injury claim.
The benefits of Exercise Physiology include:
- Improved Strength
- Improved Endurance
- Reduced Weight
- Pain management
- Improved mood
- Reduced deconditioning
CHG Exercise Physiology services are mobile and operate across all our clinics (Mile End, Gillman and Elizabeth Vale), as well as onsite in a workplace, or at a Gym in the community.
