Frequently Asked Questions
What is an Exercise Physiologist?
An exercise physiologist is a university-trained allied health professional that looks at the physiology of physical exercise by studying the acute responses and chronic adaptations to exercise in individuals.
When can I return to sport?
Clearance to return to sport will be determined by your allied health profession, doctor or surgeon.
Returning to sport early can delay healing and prolong recovery, so your exercise physiologist will consider how you progressed in your rehabilitation and transitioned from physiotherapy into an exercise physiology program.
Sometimes bracing or taping may allow an early return to sport. However, as a rule most soft tissue injuries and bone injuries will take at least six weeks for scar tissue to mature or bone to strengthen. Therefore, caution is required and is best discussed between your exercise physiologist, doctor, and coach.
What do I need to bring to my appointment?
Any relevant forms, referrals and scans will need to be brought to your initial assessment. Upon booking, it would make your experience much more efficient if you can advise us if your treatment is being handled by insurance, you have a care plan from your doctor or if you are paying privately. Please ensure you wear comfortable clothing, suitable for active movement and exercise to your appointment.
