Discover the benefits of exercise physiology

Clinical exercise physiology offers numerous benefits, whether you’re a keen athlete, a person with chronic pain or a severe injury, or just want to feel fit and healthy in your body as you live your busy life.

Exercise physiologists specialise in delivering exercise and behavioural change to try to prevent and manage conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, depression and arthritis. By using exercise and movement as an intervention method, exercise physiology can help treat long-term injuries, manage acute and chronic conditions, and give you more control over your body.

We take a holistic approach to our exercise physiology treatment, helping patients find the right exercises, habits and behaviours to transform their lifestyle and maintain long-term activity that supports their overall physical and mental wellbeing.

How exercise physiology can aid in injury treatment and rehabilitation

Exercise physiology is crucial to the successful rehabilitation of an injury. You need comprehensive treatment if you’ve recently injured yourself during sport, exercise or day-to-day repetitive strain. Comprehensive treatment doesn’t just treat the injury; it focuses on strengthening techniques to manage any future pain and strain.

Through clinical exercise physiology, you can take control of your body’s recovery and movement, deal with both old and new injuries, and understand how to manage them better in the future. In managing chronic and ongoing pain, exercise physiology may provide a rehabilitative path to lessen pain and provide effective and self-directed pain management in the future.

The exercise physiologists at MediSport Clinic will help create a personalised exercise regime to suit your specific condition or ailment. Our team will work with you to understand your lifestyle, fitness goals and favourite types of physical activity and help you forge a healthier path ahead.
