What Is Exercise Physiology?
Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) are nationally accredited 4-year university qualified allied health professionals who specialize in musculoskeletal assessment and the delivery of exercise, lifestyle and behavioural modification programs for the prevention and management of chronic diseases and musculoskeletal injuries. AEPs provide physical activity, education, self management and behaviour modification advice for clients with a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries and for clients with chronic conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, arthritis, cancer, COPD, depression, anxiety and many others.
AEPs are internationally recognized as allied health professionals and in Australia are eligible to register with Medicare, Department of Veteran Affairs and with a number of the major private health insurers. At a state level, AEPs are able to provide services under the various Workers’ Compensation schemes and Compulsory Third Party Insurance schemes.
AEPs are committed to providing outcome focused and individualised exercise and education services to assist in the management of sub-acute and chronic musculo-skeletal injuries, degenerative conditions, chronic pain, chronic diseases and psychological disorders. We will liaise closely with your doctor and other medical or allied health professionals involved in your treatment to improve your condition as effectively as possible.
