What is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist?
Did you know that often you can help yourself treat your symptoms through exercise? An exercise physiologist is an university qualified allied health professional that is trained in designing and delivering safe and effective exercise interventions for people with chronic medical conditions, injuries or disabilities. Services delivered by an AEP are also claimable under Medicare and private health fund rebates.
How is an Exercise Physiologist different to a Physiotherapist?
Physios generally focus on the diagnosis of acute injuries as well as helping to treat pain and restoring function. Exercise physiologists use evidence-based movement and exercise intervention for chronic disease prevention and management, musculoskeletal injuries and weight management. Exercise physiologists often work as part of a team of doctors, physiotherapists and other allied health professionals to ensure the best results for their clients.
