For many – Exercise Physiology is an unfamiliar term – the most common question is to ask if I am a physiotherapist.  That is ok – I love to tell people about exercise physiology and how fantastic it is. So welcome!

Just as a Doctor will prescribe a pill, I will prescribe exercise at the right intensity, frequency, type and no of times according to the health conditions needing to be addressed. I not only prescribe exercise, but I also look at the big picture, to help you in your journey back to where you want to be. Exercise physiology is all about evidence based practice – but our bodies are complex and sometimes – you need to look at the bigger picture.

See this awesome testimonial – this really is exercise physiology at work –

The first person to finally fix my back pain after seeing GPs, four different physiotherapists, two chiropractors, a musculo-skeletal physician and a spinal surgeon.

Sue has a very down to earth, scientific, practical approach and, in my case, a prescribed exercise program and massage have finally allowed me to live without pain. I’ve been able to stop the painkillers and enjoy my children, husband and life again. I am so glad I found Sue and am forever indebted to her! I highly recommend Sue.

As an exercise physiologist – I will take a lot of time – looking at the whole of you. If you come in for back pain – I will be looking at your ankles and your knees as well as your back.

I am an  accredited in Exercise Physiology and Sport Science and have over 11 years experience in the health and fitness industry.

I hold a BA in Exercise and Sport Science and a Masters in Clinical Exercise physiology (Rehabilitation)  and whilst I have a broad scope of practice, my specialties are:

    • Chronic back pain – pre/post surgery or surgery prevention
    • Knee pain – pre/post surgery or surgery prevention

If you feel you just can’t loose weight – no matter what you do – call me. I can test your resting metabolic rate with a simple breathing device to measure how many calories your body burns at rest – from this you know exactly your food requirements for weightloss – it takes the guess work out of weightloss.

This information together with the right exercise program will set you up to achieve for the long term.

The test is known as indirect calorimetry is well established and widely used to measure metabolism, and is recommended for the treatment of obesity and management of weight by the World Health Organization, Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly known as American Dietetic Association), and American College of Sports Medicine.
