What is Exercise Physiology?
Exercise physiologists study the effect of exercise on the body, the mechanisms by which exercise can reduce or reverse disease, support optimal health and aid in recovery.
We believe exercise is medicine and prescribe exercise to treat, or prevent health conditions and injuries in the same way a doctor might prescribe medication.
Pear exercise physiologists are the leading experts in Australia on how exercise can support women through pregnancy, birth, menopause, injury rehabilitation, surgical rehabilitation post mastectomy and hysterectomy.
Our appointments include exercise delivery, education and support to help you both within the gym and at home.
At Pear we offer specialised exercise physiologist services for women who are pregnant, a new mum, dealing with cancer or a chronic disease or any general women’s health conditions.
What to expect at your first appointment?
When attending an exercise physiology appointment we ask that you wear comfortable clothing you can move well in, closed in shoes and bring clean grippy socks for use on the Pilates equipment.
At your first appointment with our exercise physiologists we take any relevant medical history, clinical care plans, look at how your body is moving and work with you one on one with our equipment.
We will also give you a homework exercise program to begin using PhysiApp, where you can follow your exercise program via videos and record your progress.
We will come up with a plan together, with review appointments, home programs, small group classes providing a combination of support for your movement and health goals.
