Exercise Physiology

Exercise Physiologists are University qualified health professionals that specialise in understand and implementing exercise as a form of treatment. With a thorough understand of injury and disease processes, they use a clinical exercise prescription to implement exercise programs. An individualised, targeted exercise program will improve your fitness, facilitate injury prevention and help your rehabilitation of an injury.

Strength training is an important part of health and fitness, which can help manage many diseases such as Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, and Type 2 Diabetes, but is also essential for injury rehabilitation and prevention.

Allsports Indooroopilly provides one-on-one and group exercise physiology sessions in our fully equipped gym, and a one on one consultancy service to provide a specific home exercise program.

Chronic Disease

The term Chronic Disease is an umbrella term that describes a group of conditions that have similar characteristics of being long lasting and persistent in nature.

Affecting 1 in 5 Australians, these conditions are the leading cause of illness and disability in Australia. Most of these conditions do not have a cure, but can be effectively managed with exercise to improve quality of life and better daily function.

An experienced Exercise Physiologist is the most appropriately trained professional to assist with Chronic Disease Management, as these conditions are often accompanied with pain, decrease mobility and potentially other medical conditions.

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes occurs when the body cannot use insulin to process sugar efficiently. The consequences of high blood sugar are multiple co-morbidities such as heart, eye, foot and vascular disease, possibly even leading to death.

Exercise is the one key factor to managing Type 2 Diabetes. Exercise in conjunction with diet, can be effective in managing Type 2 Diabetes without medication. Exercise improves glycemic control as it increases the sensitivity of insulin and therefore improves the body’s ability to uptake and process sugar.

At Allsports Indooroopilly, we offer age-specific, small group, strength and balance classes that provide effective exercise for diabetic sufferers. Diet is equally as important in the management of Type 2 Diabetes as it manages the blood glucose and controls body weight. Further information can be found through our partnering nutritionist group – Eat Smart Nutrition.

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is the term used to describe when a person’s bone mineral density is lower than normal. It occurs when the body loses bone faster than it can rebuild, resulting in the weakening of the bones themselves. Weaker of brittle bones have a significant increased risk of fracture from what may seem as an inconsequential bump or fall.

There is not cure for osteoporosis, but bone loss can be slowed down or stopped. Treatment is multifactorial, and includes a combination of medication and exercise. Both weight bearing and resistance exercises are important to maintain bone health and prevent further bone loss. These types of exercises are essential as they stimulate the specific bone building cells. Additionally, increased muscle mass will further support the joint and the bone will increase.

Under an Exercise Physiologist, a resistance or strength training program can be prescribed to not only be safe and appropriate, but effective for Osteoporosis and many other concurrent conditions. Particularly for older patients, strength and balance exercises needed to minimise falls risk and reduce the incidence of fractures.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis (or Degenerative Joint Disease) is a condition used to describe the wear and tear on joints (and cartilage) in the body. Cartilage is the joint lining that protects our bone, decreases friction and acts as a cushion. Over time the load on our joints can result in cartilage degeneration, leading to pain and inflammation, which has a profound effect on our mobility, strength, and general function.

There is no cure for Osteoarthritis, however there are ways to effectively manage its symptoms. The severity of dysfunction differs from person to person, and in some severe cases a surgical intervention may be considered. In the majority of cases, exercise in conjunction with appropriate pain management is the gold standard, and should be explored before a more invasive (surgical) option be looked at.

At Allsports Indooroopilly, our Exercise Physiologist has many years of experience, and will prescribe you the most clinically appropriate exercise program to help you manage Osteoarthritis effectively.

Additionally, we have age specific, small group exercise classes that are an effective, appropriate, affordable, and enjoyable way to exercise with supervision. For more information, please visit our All Active Classes.
