Exercise Physiology or Physiotherapy – what is the difference?
Exercise Physiology is sometimes confused with Physiotherapy. Whilst we may offer many of the same services there are some distinct differences. Similar to Physiotherapists, Exercise Physiologists can provide treatments for muscle and joint problems however, Exercise Physiologists can also provide treatment for chronic conditions such as diabetes and cancer, that are not traditionally treated by Physiotherapists.
Do I need a referral to see an Exercise Physiologist?
No, you do not need a referral! You can book in for an obligation free, initial assessment to see how one of our Accredited Exercise Physiologists can help you. Please note a GP referral is required if you are being seen under an EPC plan, DVA, TAC or Work-Cover scheme.
Private health insurance rebates may apply for exercise physiology services, please contact your health fund for details.
