Let one of our Accredited Exercise Physiologists help you on your journey to a healthier and more functional life. We are located at Peninsula Sports Medicine’s Langwarrin & Rosebud locations.

 

WHAT DO WE DO?

Accredited exercise physiologists specialise in clinical exercise interventions for people with a broad range of health issues. Those people may be at risk of developing or have existing medical conditions and injuries.

Exercise physiology interventions aim to prevent or manage acute, sub-acute or chronic disease or injury and assist in restoring one’s optimal physical function, health or wellness.

These interventions are exercise-based and include health and physical activity education, advice and support and lifestyle modification with a strong focus on achieving behavioural change.

REHABILITATION

Whether you are trying to return to work, sport, are preparing or recovering from surgery, or want to feel like yourself again, we offer individualised home and gym-based plans to assist you with these goals.

We specialise in rehab for:

  • Chronic pain, including lower back pain
  • Hip & shoulder instability/pain
  • Pre & post-op hip & knee replacements
  • Poor mobility
  • Chronic injuries
  • Pregnancy & postnatal
  • Cardiac patients

 

WORKSAFE & TAC

Where a GP has written a referral letter to us requesting Exercise Physiology services for your rehabilitation, those with a recent or existing claim are likely to be funded by Workcover or the TAC for between 5-10 sessions. Once we receive your letter, we will send the appropriate paperwork to Workcover/TAC to approve services.
