Exercise Physiology & Physiological Assessment
Exercise Physiologists know all about anatomy and how each part of the body works by itself and in conjunction with other body parts. They guide patients through therapeutic exercise, aquatic therapy, learning to walk, using prosthetics/orthotics and developing a lifelong exercise regimen. They then choose exercises that will achieve specific strength or mobility enhancing goals, without causing the patient pain or further damage. Exercise Physiologists emphasize the psychological as well as physical benefits of therapeutic exercise for rehabilitation.
Exercise Physiologists regularly conduct physiological assessments to cater to those competing in all sports and activities, at all levels, from keen amateurs to potential Olympic medallists.
By assessing blood lactate thresholds, they can establish training zones for metrics such as power and speed, then as your numbers improve, update your training program. This allows for you to receive a tailored training plan for your specific needs, in order to reach your desired goal.
