Exercise Physiology

What is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist?

Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) are university qualified allied health professionals who are registered under the peak professional body of Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA). AEPs are equipped with the knowledge, skills and competencies to design, deliver and evaluate safe and effective exercise interventions for people with acute, sub-acute or chronic medical conditions, injuries or disabilities.

These conditions include, but are not limited to:

– Musculoskeletal

– Cardiovascular

– Metabolic

– Neurological

– Cancers

– Kidney

– Respiratory / Pulmonary

– Mental Health

– Other conditions which there is evidence supporting an improvement in the client’s clinical status.

How are AEPs different to Physiotherapists?

This is a frequently asked question. There can be some overlap between our worlds but, like most things, we work better together. Some key differences between the two professions is that AEPs do not provide hands on treatment or diagnose your condition. AEPs alternatively, specialise in long-term exercise prescription and management of chronic conditions.
