What is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist?
An ESSA (Exercise and Sport Science Australia) Accredited Exercise Physiologist is an Allied Health Professional, and is the most qualified exercise professional, specialising in prescription of clinical physical activity, lifestyle and behavioural modification in the prevention and management of chronic diseases and injuries. Exercise Physiologists assist wellbeing for those with conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, arthritis, depression, obesity, injury, COPD, hypertension, cancer, hypercholesterolemia (high cholesterol), asthma and many other health conditions.
ESSA is the Exercise Physiologist’s Professional Body and they use strict criteria to ensure all their members have a combination of a university Human Movement Science Degree and extensive practical experience before they can become accredited. More information can be found at www.essa.org.au
