Exercise Physiologist Rehab Cairns

Exercise Physiology

If you don’t do rehabilitation exercises soon after a major injury, illness, or surgery, you may lose fitness, strength, endurance, and your general health could suffer. This is called “deconditioning” and it can make you more likely to fall, make it harder for you to move around, and make you more reliant on others.

Exercise physiology is a field that uses physical activity and exercise to improve your overall health and wellbeing, reduce pain, and help you function better after an injury, illness, or surgery.

Our exercise physiologists at Royal Rehab LifeWorks Cairns will create a personalised exercise plan for you that includes physical activity and advice on healthy habits to keep you as fit, strong, and healthy as possible.
