Project Description

Exercise Physiology guides you to improve the way your body moves, switches on and supports itself. This will be through corrective exercise and body awareness, health guidance, advice and support for lifestyle modifications, and a strong focus to help you achieve sustainable results. EP’s specialise in clinical exercise and nutrition prescription for people with chronic injury and medical conditions.

How can Exercise Physiology help

  • When exercising and moving about in our everyday lives without postural correction, we unknowingly reinforce faulty movement patterns which result in pain, injury or prevent us becoming stronger.
  • Exercise Physiology is perfect to teach your body to be strong and stable in all the ways you move…from picking things up, walking up and down stairs, how you exercise, and to even off-set extended sitting at work.
  • Together, we can build your posture and core strength, improve the mechanics of how your body and joints move, correct any faulty movement patterns, and work on the ‘causes’ that are keeping you stiff, in pain, and preventing you from becoming stronger…Put simply you will feel and move better than you do right now.
  • Your improved movement and stability will help you to ‘hold’ your Osteopathic and Massage adjustments for longer. We work together here at Perth Osteo so you can have the best experience and the most positive outcome.

Your Exercise Physiologist will…

  • Help you with simple steps to create a stronger, more flexible and resilient body.

  • Strengthen weak core muscles and improve postural imbalances.

  • Thoroughly assess to ensure the safety and appropriateness of exercises, and your ‘movement’ capacity.

  • Make training fun, and develop effective programs with ‘personalised’ and ‘detailed’ attention for ‘your’ body and ‘your’ needs -> maximises your results + creates new lifestyle habits in your health and fitness.

  • Help you prepare for or even prevent surgery.

  • Assist rehabilitation and advise you following the acute stage of injury, surgery, or during recovery to restore your functional capacity and well-being. e.g. knee replacement or post heart attack etc.

  • Re-program your brain and body to move with ease and strength.
