Clinical exercise prescription for chronic disease, injury prevention & recovery, general health & fitness, and more.
Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEP) specialise in prescribing and delivering clinical exercise interventions for a broad range of pathological populations. These persons may be at risk of developing, or have existing, medical conditions and injuries.
The aims of AEP interventions are to prevent or manage acute, sub-acute or chronic disease and injury, with the primary goal of restoring optimal physical function, health or wellness. AEPs can also provide services to general or healthy populations who would like health and fitness or sports performance programs that utilise the latest scientific evidence and accommodate for their individual needs.
AEP’s are passionate towards getting you back to doing what you love following the onset of disease or injury. They are qualified to work with a multitude of different populations, from patients who are chronically ill to athletes, meaning they can assist you in achieving a broad range of health, movement, work or performance related goals. AEPs are experts at setting goals to build treatment plans and maintaining motivation.
During your first appointment with an AEP, they will take you through a comprehensive assessment in order to develop a treatment plan based on your unique requirements. This session will involve a questionnaire about your health and medical history, so it would be useful to bring along any relevant scans or blood test results that you may have.
What to wear: loose, comfortable clothing, as you may be asked to do a range of movements, you may not actually be doing any actual ‘exercising’.
After this appointment, your AEP will provide you with a plan of action which may vary depending on your pathology, goals and assessment results.
Subsequent appointments may include working in our exercise room or across at the fully equipped gym.
