Exercise physiologists are university-qualified allied health professionals who specialise in the delivery of exercise, lifestyle and behaviour modification programs for the prevention and management of chronic diseases and injuries.
They provide services to clients with conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, depression, cancer, arthritis, COPD and many more.
Exercise physiology is available for anyone wanting to change their exercise behaviour. An initial assessment is 60 minutes and a review is 30-60 minutes, depending on the exercise prescription required. It is recommended that you wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing to the assessment.
Before commencing most programs you must complete a pre-exercise screening tool form as part of the BCH intake process and be assessed by an exercise physiologist or physiotherapist for the most appropriate exercise prescription.
Exercise physiologist-led programs include:
- Falls prevention
- Remedial gym
- Stroke group
- Living Longer, Living Stronger
- PD Warrior
- Parkinson’s group
- Tai chi for arthritis
- Life! program
