What is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist?
AEPs specialise in the provision of exercise for the prevention and management of chronic diseases, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, pulmonary disease, cancer, osteoporosis, arthritis and mental health problems. They also assist in the management of acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries.
What is the difference between an Exercise Physiologist and Physiotherapist?
Both professionals may have a role in your treatment. If you are unsure as to which professional will be able to assist you most with a particular complaint, we would be happy to guide you. Alternatively you can consult your GP.

What should I bring to each session?
When attending your initial assessment, please bring a list of your current medications, as well as any relevant imaging reports, such as x-ray, MRI or ultrasound.
If you require any medication during exercise, such as an asthma puffer, please bring this to each session and make the Exercise Physiologist aware. If you have diabetes, it is asked that you bring along a small carbohydrate snack in case you experience a ‘hypo’.
