What Is An Accredited Exercise Physiologist?

Accredited Exercise Physiologists are university qualified allied health professionals equipped with the knowledge, skills and competencies to design, deliver and evaluate safe and effective exercise interventions for people with acute, sub-acute or chronic medical conditions, injuries or disabilities. Pathology domains covered by the services of AEPs include cardiovascular, metabolic, neurological, musculoskeletal, cancers, kidney, respiratory / pulmonary and mental health, and any other conditions for which there is evidence that exercise can improve the client’s clinical status. Our Exercise Physiologists provide support for people with:

  • Obesity
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Osteoporosis and Arthritis
  • Mental health conditions
  • Cancer and cancer treatment recovery
  • Chronic pain and fatigue
  • Post-surgical rehabilitation (ACL reconstruction/hip and knee replacement)
  • Neuro muscular exercise therapy (multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease)
  • Pulmonary disease and more
At Fit To Live, we have your post-surgery rehabilitation covered. Once we reduce inflammation and pain, improve mobility and restore function, the next stage of rehab will focus on redeveloping normal movement patterns and increasing strength and stability in the surrounding joints.


What Can An Exercise Physiologist Help Me With?

Research has proven that exercise, at the correct intensity and duration, does improve the quality and duration of life. More importantly, it decreases the incidence of chronic health conditions and obesity. Through Exercise Physiology you can be tested and provided with exercises to help with the management and prevention of chronic health conditions, rehabilitation, disabilities and mental health conditions.
Prior to engaging in exercise, our Exercise Physiologists conduct a comprehensive biomechanical and postural assessment. The assessment is designed to identify any range of motion restrictions, postural imbalances, muscular weakness and functional limitations. Assessment outcomes identify crucial elements that require rehabilitation to reduce your risk of injury or developing muscular pain. Our practitioners have developed unique exercise programs delivering effective patient outcomes. We help you reconnect your body with exercise improving your quality of life.

Remember, ageing is inevitable, disease and pain is preventable.

Exercise: Falls & Prevention Program

At Fit To Live we understand the importance of exercise in older adults. More than 1/3rd of Australians over the age of 65 will have a fall each year resulting in physical or psychological injury. This can lead to a loss of confidence and fear of a recurrent fall resulting in inactivity which further increases the risk of falling. Key Risk Factors For Falls:

  • Muscle weakness and reduced lower limb strength
  • Reduced reaction time
  • Impaired balance and gait
  • Visual impairment
  • Chronic condition influence e.g., uncontrolled diabetes can increase vision impairment and reduce sensation in feet

We have designed a falls prevention program specifically tailored around these risk factors to assist in the prevention of falls in older adults. Along with your Exercise Physiology group sessions we have tailored a home program to be conducted daily.
