Accredited Exercise Physiology

Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) are university qualified allied health professionals that work with people to prevent and manage acute, sub-acute or chronic medical conditions, injuries or disabilities. These interventions are provided by health and physical activity, education, advice and support, and lifestyle modification with a strong focus on achieving behavioural change.

This includes but is not limited to people with the following conditions:

  • Cardiovascular (hypertension, coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease, myocardial infarction / heart attack, heart failure)
  • Metabolic (obesity, dyslipidaemia, diabetes mellitus)
  • Neurological (Acquired Brain Injury including Stroke and Traumatic Brain Injury, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy and all other conditions)
  • Musculoskeletal (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, pain / injuries)
  • Cancers
  • Respiratory / Pulmonary (asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis)
  • Mental Health

Exercise Physiologists can assist with these conditions by designing, delivering and evaluating the following interventions in a group or individual setting:

  • Comprehensive assessment
  • Falls prevention
  • Balance and mobility
  • Strength and conditioning
  • Aquatic therapy / swimming
  • High level mobility i.e. returning to sport / running / recreational activities
  • Cardiovascular retraining
  • Functional capacity assessment and conditioning (activities of daily living, work, driving)
  • Health education, lifestyle intervention, advice and support

Exercise Physiologists at Alliance Rehabilitation are accredited through Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA), the peak professional body and sole accrediting authority for Accredited Exercise Physiologists.
