Chronic Health Conditions

At our Exercise Physiology clinic in Greenslopes we regularly assist with both the prevention and management of a large variety of different chronic health conditions. Our Exercise Physiologists understand that everyone is affected differently by their chronic health condition, and therefore we design individualised exercise programs which are specific to you. Health conditions which we regularly see at our clinic include, but are not limited to:
