What’s the difference between physiotherapy and exercise physiology?
Good question! There’s a lot of overlap between the two, but basically physiotherapy tends to intervene earlier in the process in order to make an accurate diagnosis and determine the need for other services such as imaging or surgical consultation.
Exercise physiologists design exercise and movement programmes with a view to improving health & wellbeing and rehabilitating certain injuries or surgical procedures. Generally speaking, patients tend to start with a physiotherapist then transition to an exercise physiologist once we’re happy that no further manual therapy or diagnostic procedures are required.
However, lots of patients do commence with exercise physiology without first seeing a physiotherapist if they already know that their condition simply requires an exercise programme. For example, if their GP or specialist has referred them directly to this, or if they know that their condition has already had the hands-on manual therapy treatment that it requires.
