Exercise Physiology Services in Kalgoorlie

Exercise physiology is an integral part of Allied Health. Exercise Physiology combines the science of human physiology (body processes) with the science of exercise to create movement strategies to assist with a range of health conditions. Exercise Physiology can be used to improve the quality of life for people of all ages, backgrounds and health profiles.

“Exercise as medicine” is also a great way to think of what our exercise physiologist offers. Exercise, whether it be resistance, aerobic, balance, flexibility or other forms of training can be used as a great way to manage and treat chronic and complex conditions such as:

  • Diabetes and obesity
  • Mental health issues (depression, anxiety)
  • Musculoskeletal injuries (pre/post-surgery rehab)
  • Neurological conditions (stroke, Parkinson’s, MS)
  • Aging (balance, falls risk, prevention of muscle and bone loss)
  • Cardiovascular (heart attack, arrhythmias, Hypertension, CVD)
  • Pulmonary (Cystic fibrosis, asthma, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
  • Paediatrics (Cerebral palsy, ADHD)
  • Cancer (delivery of exercise during treatment to aid therapy effectiveness and after treatment to regain function, strength, bone mass, fitness)
