MIND Exercise Physiology Services
Our world is ever-changing and constantly evolving. Our culture is shifting and advancement in technology is making everything conveniently accessible. There is little demand for movement or any physical effort beyond a touch of a screen.
So, it makes sense that we aren’t moving as much as we should be, and as a direct result, our bellies get bigger, we injure easily, chronic health problems occur and we constantly feel sluggish, unhappy and in pain.
Where does an Exercise Physiologist fit?
An Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) is a university- qualified allied health professional that specialises in providing individualised, effective movement interventions.
We’ve heard it before; exercise is medicine and through the influence of movement a MIND Exercise Physiologist provides people with the tools for success and empowerment. And, in a world where comfort is safe, we help people push the boundaries, overcome, and manage trauma, pain, injury, self-doubt and chronic disease.
Here are some reasons to see a MIND Exercise Physiologist:
We begin ageing the moment we are born. Unfortunately, we can’t change that, but we can create the right environment for your body to develop, maintain and feel good.
Chronic Disease Management:
By understanding the complexities living with a chronic condition has a MIND AEP uses their knowledge to help reduce risk factors, manage comorbidities, improve limitations in movement and safely improve quality of life to gain independence.
Chronic Pain Management:
We learn to tolerate pain and assume it’s a natural consequence of ageing and life but it’s a message altered by our system to indicate danger. We load dysfunction and wonder why our movement problems aren’t solved or promote more discomfort.
It’s because “pain is not the problem, it’s the signal” and a MIND Exercise Physiologist can provide strategies and education to help individuals conquer their trauma to improve overall function.
Injury Prevention & Rehabilitation:
Life is unpredictable and sometimes unfortunate events occur that cause injury to any of these structures, so we require rehabilitation. A MIND Exercise Physiologist is well equipped to handle restoring the body to its original state through movement intervention. They also provide blueprints to ensure prevention strategies are implemented to reduce the risk of further injury.
Fundamentals & Foundations:
We are movement creatures, designed to walk, run, jump, climb, and throw. By helping reinstate our foundations and biomechanics we allow our body to be more efficient. A MIND Exercise Physiologist helps improve posture, walking ability, muscle sling connections and restore neuromuscular patterns.
Performance is achieved when we have mastered our interaction with our environment, the ability to control and move our mechanical system, and then control load or effort into our action. A MIND Exercise Physiologist can implement change and find the missing link to ensure your optimal performance is being achieved.
Connection between Physical and Mental Health:
Exercise is natures mood booster that promotes the secretion of our ‘happy hormones’. Exercise is such a powerful tool to help prevent and manage mental health conditions and our Exercise Physiologists are uniquely qualified to establish engaging programs that improves self-confidence and provide social connections through a sense of community.
“The only bad workout is the one that leads to injury”.
Exercise should be an experience that future proofs your body and establishes connections well beyond an 8-week challenge. Programs designed should help you move with how nature intended and provide you with the education and awareness to self-manage.
A MIND Exercise Physiologist understands the importance of movement integrity and training with an integrated approach to help you create a strong, robust architecture that reduces aches and pains, deconditioning and other risk factors associated with dysfunction and inactivity.
