Exercise Physiology Camberwell

Exercise Physiology at Upwell, Camberwell

 

At Upwell, we know that no two bodies are the same. Exercise physiology applies the science of getting you fit and healthy with the peace of mind that your injuries and medical conditions will be closely taken into account. An exercise physiologist is different to a personal trainer – they are a university qualified allied health professional, who specialises in the prescription of exercise for various health conditions. This expertise enables you to reach your health and wellness goals efficiently and effectively.

 

If you know that you need to get active, but aren’t sure where to start, then exercise physiology might be for you. At Upwell, we believe that careful and considered movement is the best form of medicine – especially when it comes to managing a musculoskeletal condition or injury. We also know that you need the optimal dose to get results. Consider your exercise physiologist to be your specialist when it comes to moving safely and maximising your wellbeing.

 

Gone are the days of ‘one size fits all’ exercise prescription, without addressing muscular imbalances, biomedical health markers, and what makes you unique. At Upwell, in addition to your comprehensive initial assessment, you will have access to the some of the world’s best healthcare technology including an anti-gravity treadmill designed by NASA, on-screen 3D modelling for patient education and a personalised, interactive rehab exercise application for use on mobile devices – providing a rich and inspiring clinical exercise experience.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN MY INITIAL ASSESSMENT?

 

An initial assessment with an exercise physiologist at Upwell will involve taking a thorough medical history, including previous or current injuries, health conditions and medications. This information is vital in prescribing exercise that is tailored to you. The assessment is specific to your current condition – which could range from cardiovascular measures through to specific strength and flexibility testing.

 

You will be guided through an effective way of setting goals and breaking them down into smaller parts to build achievement and motivation. These will be continually checked and adjusted to ensure that your program reflects your progress. If required, a structured home exercise program will be developed to ensure that you are getting the most out of your face-to-face exercise physiology sessions.

 

Most importantly, you will walk away with a clear management plan for your particular condition and feel supported by the fact that your exercise is being taken care of by a professional. Your exercise physiologist will also collaborate with your other treating practitioners to ensure each member of your healthcare team is on the same page.

 

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A ONE-ON-ONE EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY SESSION?

 

Your one-on-one session with an exercise physiologist will involve a tailored clinical exercise session based on your initial assessment and goals. This session allows for maximum supervision and helps to develop good exercise technique and understanding. Individual exercise physiology sessions are available as 30 and 45 minute appointments – meaning that clinical exercise will always fit in your schedule!

 

ARE THERE GROUP SESSIONS AVAILABLE?

 

To ensure that your exercise can be completely individualised, supervised and safe, Upwell offers 1:3 Clinical Exercise Groups with our exercise physiologist. This goes for 45 minutes and involves a thorough warm up and mobility component to increase function and manage your condition.
