    An exercise physiologist will assist you in finding the correct balance through effective exercise prescription and rest. Despite traditional beliefs that exercise should be avoided, research has shown that regular physical activity reduces impairment and improves joint function. The benefits of seeing an accredited Exercise Physiologist is that they are experts in designing exercises to reduce inflammation, pain and improving range of motion through increased muscle strength, flexibility and weight control.
