EXERICISE IS MEDICINE
Exercise Physiologists are university trained allied health professionals that have a unique skill set in prescribing exercise to individuals with injuries, chronic disease and disability. An exercise physiologist will provide safe and effective exercise interventions based on your individual needs, promoting quality of life and overall health and well-being.
Clinical exercise is used to treat and prevent many health conditions including but not limited to the following:
o Pain management
o Heart disease
o Respiratory conditions
o Musculoskeletal conditions
o Stroke o Multiple Sclerosis
o Parkinson’s Disease
o Falls prevention
o Mental health
Exercise Physiologists also work with the healthy population and those with sporting injuries helping get athletes and individuals back to sport or pre-injury fitness levels.
At KO we see individuals funded from Medicare, NDIS, TAC and WorkSafe as well as privately paying individuals. What to expect in an assessment: An exercise physiologist will first take an extensive medical history and assess how your body functions in order to deliver a program individualised to your specific needs and goals. They will look at your current treatment plan from other health professionals if you have one to help assist with reaching these goals or a healthy lifestyle change.
Exercise Physiology is available in One on One or Small Group Sessions Prior to commencing our Group Sessions, a one-on-one consultation with one of our Accredited Exercise Physiologist is required. This is to ensure that a specific program appropriate to your goals is established prior to your first group session.
