There’s a lot of reasons to see an AEP,
but here are some of the most common
Chronic pain is classified as pain that if it persists for longer than three months or beyond normal healing time. AEPs are trained in a range of pain management techniques and will prescribe exercises to help improve your quality of life.
A physiotherapist generally diagnoses and manages the acute treatment of an injury. After the first phase of treatment, your physio may refer you to an exercisephysiologist. They will further assist with your recovery and reduce your risk of re-injury.
Exercise is a powerful tool for both preventing and managing mental health conditions like depression and anxiety. Exercisephysiologists are uniquely qualified to prescribe exercise to those living with mental illness.
There’s additional factors that you need to considered if you’re living with (or at risk of developing) a chronic condition. These include the impact of medication, risk of comorbidities and limitations to range of movement. An AEP understands these complexities. They have the skills and knowledge to prescribe safe exercise interventions that are tailored individually for your needs. If you have a chronic disease, it’s also a good idea to chat to your GP before exercising. They may refer you directly to an exercisephysiologist to help you get active safely.
