5 Reasons Why You Need an Exercise Physiologist

Lane Cove Physio has been a great supporter of In the Cove.  They are a Platinum Sponsor and with ITC’s dodgy knee and back we have spent quite a bit of time in their Hydrotherapy pool.  The Lane Cove Physio team has a new addition – Emma Unwin.  Emma is an Accredited Exercise Physiologists.

Will let Emma explain the five reasons you need to make an appointment with her.


We devise Exercise Programmes for Safe and Effective Exercise

Exercise Physiologists are university qualified and educated allied health professionals. They have the expertise and knowledge to design, deliver and assess a safe and effective exercise intervention for a wide variety of the population. They device exercise programs for acute, sub-acute or chronic medical conditions, injuries or disabilities.

We Get You Back on Your Feet

Did you know that Lane Cove has the second highest incidents of falls by the elderly in the Northern Sydney Health District?  Once an elderly person has fallen once or twice they get more and more nervous and lose their confidence. This is where an exercise physiologist can help.  With inactivity comes muscle deterioration and weakening. They will devise a programme to strengthen muscles to help a patient to be more active and not scared of falling.  It is not only the elderly that sees muscle weakening.  Muscle tissue and bone mineral density begin to deteriorate from the age of 30.

We Help You Improve Quality of Life

Research has proven that exercise, at the correct intensity and duration, does improve the quality and duration of life. More importantly, it decreases the incidence of chronic health conditions and obesity.  An Exercise Physiologist will use current literature and evidence to support their interpretation of a condition, when conducting fitness assessments, and generating individualised exercise programs to meet the needs of the client’s goals.

Exercise Physiologists Are All Rounders

We are experienced in creating exercise programs for the gym, fitness facilities, home based, and/or swimming pools. All our programmes aim to improving functional capacity and quality of life.  With Lane Cove Physio’s  on-site hydrotherapy pool and fully equipped patient gym, Emma is well suited to deliver the best outcomes for patients.
