Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEP’s) are tertiary qualified allied health professionals. AEP’s use exercise as a form of rehabilitation and lifestyle therapy to prevent and manage chronic diseases, injury and disability.
Exercise Physiology differs from Physiotherapy in that AEP’s deal with sub-acute patients and use exercise as the main form of treatment.
At Groove Health, we have a team of Exercise Physiologists all accredited with Exercise and Sport Science Australia (ESSA) & registered with Medicare. Our AEP’s specialise in exercise interventions for chronic conditions (including arthritis, osteoporosis, cardiopulmonary diseases, diabetes and obesity), musculoskeletal rehabilitation, postural control, workplace conditioning, strength and conditioning as well as improvements in sporting performance.
Our AEP’s carry out fitness testing and can create you a tailored exercise and lifestyle program. We will show you safe and effective ways to exercise to help you achieve your goals. Patients at Groove Health are often discharged from Physiotherapy to Exercises Physiology after their acute rehabilitation, for larger, compound exercises, functional strength, and ongoing conditioning and fitness.
At Groove Health our Exercise Physiologists provide the following services, all of which can be claimed through Private Health:
