Exercise Physiology in Adelaide

Physical activity plays a pivotal role in remaining independent throughout life. Exercise is the foundation for maintaining muscular strength and improving balance, thus reducing the risk of falls and allowing everyday activities to remain manageable. As you get older, exercise becomes even more important in relation to maintaining a healthy heart, muscular mobility and reducing muscular aches and pains.
Some people are confused when it comes to exercise and often believe it is not for them, however exercise is for everyone and studies have shown that usually the unfit experience the greatest benefits. Exercise has a role to play in everyone’s life no matter how small.

Exercise can have the following benefits:

  • Increased bone strength
  • Improved functional capacity
  • Increased joint range of motion and decreased pain
  • Improved physical fitness and sense of well being
  • Increased muscular strength
  • Improved glucose regulation (very favourable for diabetics)
