Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist?

An Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) is an allied health professional that specialises in the prescription of exercise and movement for the prevention and management of chronic diseases and injuries.

An AEP will be university qualified for a minimum of four years, and is required to meet professional standards and continuing education requirements in order to remain accredited by Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA)

What does a typical initial consultation with an AEP include?

Typically, an initial session with our AEPs may include:

  • an initial assessment and thorough history to define your current health state and exercise background
  • physical assessment to determine some objective measures such as blood pressure, heart rate, body composition, exercise tolerance and muscle strength will be undertaken (if appropriate)
  • a complete targeted exercise session in our clinic

We will also aim to educate you on how Exercise Physiology can help and how it relates to your condition or presentation, and we will assist you with strategies to empower you to meet your exercise, health and wellness goals.

Do you communicate with my doctor or other allied health providers?

With your consent, we can discuss our recommendations and exercise prescriptions with your GP, Specialist, Physiotherapist or Personal Trainer/Coach.

Communication with your care givers is important, to ensure a collaborative approach to your management. Think of us as working as a multidisciplinary team, with one common goal: to help improve your life.

Can I claim your services through Medicare?

An individual may be eligible for an Chronic Disease Management (CDM) plan (formally an Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan) if they have a chronic condition or injury that has been, or is likely to be present for at least 3 – 6 months.

This includes but not limited to musculoskeletal injury, accidents or post-operative care, as well as chronic disease management.

If you have a chronic medical condition, you may be eligible to obtain an CDM plan through your doctor.

Can I claim your services through Workcover?

Yes we can – Individuals with a referral from their doctor engage in an assessment and our AEPs can prescribe an exercise program tailored to meet their needs, with the end goal to return to work safely as quickly as possible.

Can I claim a private health rebate on your services?

We do accept private health claims for exercise physiology services – check with your selected private health provider to see if you are covered.

Do you accept Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) cards?

If you have a DVA Health Card – All Conditions (Gold Card) or Totally & Permanently Incapacitated (Gold), or for specific conditions (White Card), the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) will fund exercise physiology services available through DVA arrangements that meet clinical needs.

This includes an assessment with suitable exercise programming and prescription to meet the individuals needs.
