What does an Exercise Physiologist really do?

 

Did you know that this week is Exercise Physiology awareness week?
Pro Exercise SA, thought it would be the perfect time to properly explain Exercise Physiology and the benefits of this Allied Health service.

What is an Exercise Physiologist?

An exercise physiologist is an Allied Health professional who specialises in the benefits of physical exercise to improve patient fitness and general wellbeing or to treat patients with a medical or chronic condition through exercise. Exercise physiologists are knowledgeable about the effects that exercise has on the musculoskeletal system, as well as on the cardiovascular and endocrine systems. 

The benefits of exercise

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.
 

Which patients are best suited to exercise intervention?

  • A history of sedentary behaviours
  • Difficulty maintaining motivation and adherence
  • Physical restrictions or mobility issues
  • Co-morbid conditions

Why a GP may refer you to an Accredited Exercise Physiologist?

  • To improve your quality of care
  • To improve self management
  • To incorporate more preventative services

Pro Exercise SA, offers one-on-one consultations as well as a variety of group fitness classes, which include:
