Exercise Physiology

Excersise Physiology

Working with you to tailor exercise plans to suit your needs.

Based at UniSA’s City East, City West, and Magill campuses, the Exercise Physiology Clinic offers specialist exercise prescription services to the community to assist with the management and prevention of chronic health conditions, musculoskeletal rehabilitation, medical conditions, disabilities and mental health conditions.

Exercise physiology services are provided by final year undergraduate exercise physiology students under the supervision of accredited exercise physiologists, or directly by accredited exercise physiologists.

Appointments are essential (please note in most cases for Accredited Exercise Physiology services, a referral from your General Practitioner or medical specialist is required).

Services

Our services are beneficial for the management of:

  • cardiovascular disease/dysfunction
  • chronic fatigue pathologies
  • hormonal dysfunction
  • metabolic disease/dysfunction
  • musculoskeletal disease/dysfunction
  • neurological, psychological and respiratory diseases

We offer practical exercise advice and programs that will equip you with the skills to maintain appropriate exercise habits, long term. Changes to everyday behaviour including the addition/modification of physical activity habits are not easily achieved. Our staff recognise this and will assist by helping to identify and work around any barriers in order to achieve your specific health goals.

Our service is tailored to suit your individual needs and preferences, and is designed to be performed by you from home or within an exercise training facility.

Please wear comfortable, non-restrictive clothing and suitable footwear to your appointment, and bring any relevant medical information with you such as specialist or x-ray reports (not films).
