Exercise Physiology Service

Regular physical activity is one of the most simple and powerful medicines we have. Our exercise physiologist can assist you to exercise safely and effectively to improve your overall health and function.

At Waves, our exercise physiologists are specialists in clinical exercise prescription, providing tailored advice and exercise support after a diagnosis or change in health status such as diabetes, heart disease, elevated blood pressure or musculoskeletal conditions.

Our supportive team will identify a safe and appropriate starting point for your exercise, and tailor exercise progressions that consider your medical history, medication, functional capacity, and health goals. They will also help you integrate exercise into your day and establish habits to sustain a regular physical activity routine. Some of the common reasons people will see an exercise physiologist are to:

  • Optimise health following diagnosis of a medical condition or change in your health status
  • Avoid or delay the need for medication or surgery
  • Safely get back to previous activities after an illness, injury, or surgery
  • Manage conditions such as back pain or arthritis when exercising
  • Assist with weight loss and altering body composition
  • Learn how to exercise effectively and build confidence and motivation to manage your own program.
