Exercise Physiology

Is Exercise Physiology For You?

Exercise Physiology at PridePlus is for everyone who wants to maximise their body’s performance. That’s all of us, right?

Our Exercise Physiologists (EPs) are exercise experts. By applying their scientific knowledge, our EPs are able to use the right exercise to treat disease, injury or pain when we are suffering. Yes, used correctly, exercise is a ‘drug’ which can enrich our lives by optimising performance and reducing wear and tear.

This performance enhancement might be what you’re looking for in the sporting arena or perhaps you’re looking to improve the quality of your daily live. Either way, our highly-trained and experienced EPs will work with you to tailor a program to suit you. Your exercise prescription or program will take into account your injury history, medical conditions and personal activity history. We will work with you to challenge you when needed, support and educate you and above all, help you achieve your goals.

When seeing our EPs at PridePlus you will have access to our modern gym equipment for use one-on-one with our EPs or within small, supportive groups. That choice is yours to make.

How Can Exercise Physiology Help?

Our EPs are university qualified and accredited by ESSA (Exercise and Sports Science Australia) to provide their care within a variety of frameworks. You can see our EPs without a referral or alternatively access funding (if eligible) via team care arrangements and referral from your GP. Most private health insurers recognise the benefits of Exercise Therapy in treating and preventing disease so rebates are often available. Check with your own health fund.

Our EPs can help you with:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Falls and balance
  • Mental health and wellbeing
  • Musculoskeletal injuries, aches and pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Chronic disease
  • Diabetes
  • Pre- and post-surgery rehabilitation
  • Pre- and post-natal bodies
  • Persistent or chronic pain
