Exercise Physiology is one of the largest growth fields in the allied health industry of the past decade. Exercise Physiologists (EPs) are the specialists in the prescription of a range of specific, targeted exercises to combat a wide array of health and physical issues.
Here at Pinnacle, EP sits perfectly in the mix as we look to improve the health & wellbeing of our patients, long after an injury or a painful episode has passed. We don’t want to just get you out of pain; it’s our obligation as health professionals to work with you to do everything we can to make sure it doesn’t come back.
Exercise Physiology sessions will often follow on from a course of chiro or physio treatment, as we move out of the “Repair” phase into the “Retrain” & “Maintain” phases of your care. Your EP will work closely with our other practitioners to ensure an exercise programme will be drawn up that is perfectly tailored to you. They will then go through this programme with you here at the clinic, and give you the home exercises that you need to do yourself as well.
Our EP service is NDIS approved, and we love helping out people under this plan whether they be self-managed, plan-managed or agency-managed.
How is EP different to Physio?
Good question! Essentially, if there is an injury or a specific diagnosis of something that has been recently damaged (eg. sprained ankle, lower back injury), you’ll need to get a physio or chiro to look at that first to get a proper diagnosis. Once you’re ready to commence exercise rehab for that injury, that’s where EP comes in.
OR, if you’ve got a condition that doesn’t require a specific diagnosis, or you’re just after an expert who can help design a plan to manage a condition such as diabetes, heart disease or other metabolic disorders, EP is the perfect solution.
If you’re unsure whether EP is the right thing for you, feel free to get in touch with us first for an obligation free chat. Email email@example.com and we’ll put you in the hands of the right person to find out more.
