Exercise Physiology at Synergy Healthcare

Man working with physical therapist on his kneeExercise physiology is the study of the acute responses and chronic adaptations to a wide variety of exercise conditions. In addition, many exercise physiologists study the effect of exercise on pathology. That is, mechanisms are closely studied whereby exercise can reduce or reverse disease progression.

Exercise physiology uses exercise as a form of natural medicine. Its goal is to assist patients suffering from an array of diseases to improve, reverse or assist in the management of their condition.

The discipline involves the use of resistance, flexibility and aerobic training to enable the patient to reach optimal health.

Benefits of Exercise Physiology

  • Education – You’ll discover parts of your body that you never knew existed. You’ll also learn how to maximise them. We’ll teach you the skills to move efficiently and effectively.
  • Great techniques – Proper technique can optimise performance, minimise pain or injury and help you become stronger, faster.
  • Hands-off approach – We’ll teach you to manage your condition through exercise and proactive strategies. This approach helps you to feel in control over your body and a sense of accomplishment as you progress.
  • Evidence-based – Our strategies are derived from rigorous scientific research. Synergy Healthcare uses proven scientific reasoning to justify our recommendations and techniques.
  • Reasonable expectations – When it comes to exercise, we’re often our own worst enemy. We tend to see exercise as black or white. People often end up either overdoing it or doing nothing at all. We don’t want you to do too much too soon and end up injured. Through our practical and experienced guidance, we’ll design the right plan for you.
