What is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP)?

AEPs are university qualified allied health professionals equipped with the knowledge, skills and competencies to design, deliver and evaluate safe and effective exercise interventions for people with acute, sub-acute or chronic medical conditions, injuries or disabilities (ESSA).

What is the difference between Exercise Physiologists and Physiotherapists?

Exercise physiologists tend to work in the long-term management of chronic conditions, whereas a Physiotherapist works more in the acute management phase. Physiotherapists have more diagnostic skills and can provide hands-on treatment for their clients if necessary. For best client outcomes we always recommend a multidisciplinary approach.
