Exercise Physiology in Healesville

 

At Better Exercise Physiology we treat pain and injuries using exercise as therapy. We work to increase your strength, fitness and mobility to put you back in control.

 

We will teach you how to do the RIGHT exercises with PROPER technique.

 

Injuries we specialise in:

Chronic and complex low back pain

Neck and shoulder injuries

Hip and knee replacements

 

We also see patients with wide range of complex medical conditions including diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

 

 

What You Can Expect From a Course of Treatment?

1. A Full Assessment of your posture, movement and muscle function

(we identify exactly what needs fixing)

2. From there we develop a specific exercise program for you to continue at home

(importantly we teach you correct technique)

3. In follow up appointments we revise and progress your program

(the end result: you’re in control of your injury)

FAQ’S

Q. What does a typical session look like?

A. The initial session will include a thorough assessment. We will also develop an exercise program that addresses your issues, be it weakness, over recruitment, decreased activation, incorrect sequencing or any other movement dysfunction you may have.

Q. How long does a course of treatment last?

A. This depends on the nature of your injury. Simple cases may take as little as 4-6 weeks with more complex injuries taking longer. Either way, you should expect to see a significant improvement within the first few sessions.

Q. How does an Exercise Physiologist differ from a Physiotherapist?

A. Exercise Physiologists are the highest trained professionals specialising primarily in exercise. We teach you to treat your own condition. Unlike physiotherapists we do not do hands on work (massage and adjustments) and refer on when this is needed.
