Exercise Physiology in Petersham

Exercise Physiology

Failing to engage in rehabilitation exercises promptly following a significant injury, illness, or surgical procedure could result in a decline in your physical condition, strength, endurance, and overall wellbeing. This is referred to as “deconditioning,” and has the potential to heighten the risk of falls, impede your mobility, and increase your dependence on others.

Exercise physiology is a field that uses exercise and physical activity aimed at improving your overall health, reducing pain, alleviating discomfort and helping you do better after you’ve had an injury, illness, or had surgery.

Our team of exercise physiologists will make a plan just for you with exercises and tips on how to stay healthy. This plan will help you stay as fit, strong, and healthy as you can be.
