How can an Exercise Physiologist help you?
Have you heard about Exercise Physiologists, but never really known what they do or whether they could help you? This article will give you an excellent understanding of the profession and whether they could make a world of difference to your life.
Exercise Physiology numbers have grown substantially in South Australia over the past 5 years following the introduction of local University degrees. This has meant that regional areas such as ours are starting to hear more and more about this profession and are lucky enough to now have 2 working in the community.
Often country areas can have a lack of options and resources when it comes to education and support around exercise, pain management and healthcare. This leads to the same cycle of poor outcomes and high levels of chronic health conditions such as heart disease, Type 2 Diabetes and persisting pain.
However, the introduction of Exercise Physiology means that the residents of Port Lincoln and surrounding towns now have a new and exciting option to help them live longer, healthier and happier lives. A recent report by Deloitte (2016) found that for every dollar spent on Exercise Physiology services, the consumer received $10.50 worth of value in improved wellbeing, greater productivity, and reduced health expenses.
