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.
