Our Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) specialise in clinical exercise interventions for clients at risk of developing, or living with, chronic and complex medical conditions and injuries. We provide physical activity education, advice and support on lifestyle modification to assist the restoration of our client’s optimal physical function, health and wellbeing.

We achieve this through a range of programs, supported by robust quality assurance. Our exercise physiologists target and treat both the physical and psychological barriers that contribute to poor recovery and return to work outcomes. Evidence based interventions focus on physical activity, developing independence and symptom management strategies.

Our Exercise Physiology services deliver:
  • Work Related Activity Treatment: Conducted in gym, home or workplace settings, focusing on the performance of activities specific to the injured employee’s job tasks.
  • Functional Recovery Programs: Focusing on upgrading functional capacity, return to work, health and well-being and promoting independence.
  • Hydrotherapy: Water-based treatment programs post-surgery or when weight-bearing exercise is difficult, to support clients to progress to land-based activity.
  • Understanding Pain Workshops: Employees with a strong understanding of pain experience more positive recovery, return to work and pre-injury duties outcomes.

Our exercise physiologists have expert knowledge in the treatment of common motor accident injuries, spinal cord and brain injuries, cancer, mental health conditions, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, with strong experience supporting injured CTP and Life Insurance clients.

The government now recognises the need for increased support and treatment for patients who suffer chronic disease. Exercise physiologists are among the allied health professionals able to provide Medicare services to people with chronic and complex illnesses. The Enhanced Primary Care Plan (ECP) supports the use of exercise physiologists through Medicare. Rebates are also available through the department of Veteran Affairs and select private health insurers.
