WHAT IS EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY?

An Exercise Physiologist is like a mechanic for the body! Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) specialise in clinical exercise prescription to persons at high-risk of developing, or with existing, chronic and often complex medical conditions and injuries. As tertiary qualified Allied Health Professionals, AEPs display a diverse range of knowledge and skills, working across a variety of areas in the health and exercise, and sports science fields.

Our aim as an AEP is to prevent or manage chronic disease or injury, and assist in restoring one’s optimal physical function, health and wellness. We also place a strong focus on condition self-management, educating and empowering each patient to better understand and treat their own injuries and ailments.

WHO DO WE PROVIDE SERVICES TO?

Restart provide movement-based therapy to any person dissatisfied with living a life of pain, disability and limitation. 

Our patients often come to Restart with a goal of being able to sleep through the night without pain; to play with their children without becoming short of breath; or learn the best type of exercise to better manage their blood sugar levels following a recent diabetes diagnosis.

The beauty of the service we provide is through our understanding of the uniqueness of the human body, and that no two individuals are the same.

This forms the basis of our philosophy here at Restart, and is reflected in our exercise prescription.

You may be eligible for funded care at Restart should you fulfil the criteria for funding through one of the following schemes:

  • Chronic Disease Management Medicare Team Care Arrangement Scheme,
  • Private Health Insurance rebates (check with your provider),
  • Entitled Department of Veterans Affairs card holders for clinically necessary treatment on a valid D904 referral,
  • Return to Work Rehabilitation through WorkCover QLD, and CTP Insurance Claims,
  • National Disability Insurance Scheme for disability services,
  • My Health for Life group-based health program,
  • Pre-employment Functional Workplace Assessment.
