Our Exercise Physiologists deal in the science of exercise in special and chronic disease population and are excellent at helping you improve and maintain your health and general well-being.

In the context of living with a neurological condition or disability, this is incredibly important because lack of cardiovascular fitness, fatigue, weakness and overall endurance capacity can be severely impaired. This is important because deconditioning can lead to further decreased mobility, falls and lack of independence. Not to mention the impact on existing fatigue, anxiety and depression and social isolation which can result from a lack of mobility and community engagement.

Having a neurological condition or disability means that maintaining your general health and fitness is vital but can also present with difficulties. Our EP team are trained especially to you and can help you at your home, our clinic, your local gym or the park.
