We will teach you how to monitor your body’s response to exercise and how to properly judge exercise intensity so you can stay within safe limits when exercising independently.
All our treatments are evidence-based and driven by assessment, and will be individualised to fit your unique needs.
When you join the Clinic, you will meet with one of our clinical exercise physiology students, who will work with you to design an appropriate assessment plan for your condition. Your assessment plan will include at least two sessions to evaluate your current fitness by measuring your heart and lung function, muscle strength, coordination and balance.
Following these exercise assessments, we will meet with you to discuss our findings and to explore treatment options. Our registered clinical exercise physiologists and students work alongside colleagues in allied health to prescribe you with safe and effective exercise. If you are under specialist care, or you require an on-going treatment plan to maintain your current health and wellbeing, please contact us and arrange an appointment.
