Common Questions About Exercise Physiology

An Exercise Physiologist can help your condition by working with you to formulate an appropriate treatment plan to assist in reaching your specific goals. Exercise Physiologists use movement and exercise in conjunction with specific education and motivational guidance to treat and manage your conditions.

You can expect your Exercise Physiologist to listen to your personal story and ask questions, so they can work with you to guide an appropriate treatment plan. Your Exercise Physiologist will complete a detailed, goal-focused, clinical, and functional assessment. This may include the Exercise Physiologist observing how you move, how strong you are, what your balance is like, as well as other specific assessments.

Treatment will vary and be specific to you but will likely involve modified movement and exercises to build your capacity and function through strength, fitness, balance, and more. Treatment will change and progress while working alongside your Exercise Physiologist. Sessions may take place in different environments including your home, gyms, or pools, depending on your interests and goals.

Sometimes, the treatments may leave you feeling a little tired or sore. If that is the case, it’s important you let your Exercise Physiologist know. That way, they can modify your treatment to get the best results for you.
