Exercise Physiology Sydney

At MetroRehab Hospital, we understand that after a major illness or surgery, it’s common to have issues with pain, weight gain, and functionality. Get your body moving and exceed your expectations with our popular exercise physiology program.

What is Exercise Physiology?

Exercise physiology is an allied health discipline offered as part of the MetroRehab Hospital day rehabilitation program in Sydney. Based on the global benefits of exercise, exercise physiology can improve your general health and wellbeing to support you to achieve your personal goals.

If you have experienced a major trauma, illness or surgery, it is likely you will find that the lack of movement can cause poor fitness, reduced strength and endurance and a decrease in general health. This is called ‘deconditioning’ and it can increase the incidence of falls, reduce your mobility and independence. Exercise physiology plays an important role in addressing the effects of deconditioning, while building your strength and confidence.

Is Exercise Physiology Right for Me?

Everyone can benefit from a little exercise! Exercise physiology, however, is tailor-made specifically for those that have overcome major trauma, post-operative surgery or those with neurological conditions like multiple sclerosis, a brain injury, or a stroke.
