What to expect from your initial appointment
When attending an Exercise Physiology appointment, we ask that you please wear some comfortable clothing you can move well in, closed in shoes & bring clean grippy socks for use on the Pilates equipment.
At your initial or class prescreening appointment with our Exercise Physiologists we take any relevant medical history, if you are pregnant or recently postnatal we will record how many weeks, if you are receiving treatment for cancer we will record your clinical care plan, look at your biomechanics (ie how your body is moving) and work with you one on one with our equipment.
We will also send you home with homework exercise program to begin. No scribbled stick figures here, we use PhysiApp, a free download for IOS & Android to follow along with your homework exercise program via videos & to record your process.
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. #exerciseismedicine
What is Exercise Physiology?
Exercise Physiologists use exercise to help manage, or prevent, illness, injury & disease. We prescribe exercise in a rehabilitation setting, using Pilates equipment, and work from acute rehabilitation after injury or surgery all the way through to returning to sport & performance.
Exercise physiologists study the effect of exercise on the body, and the mechanisms by which exercise can reduce or reverse disease, support optimal health, and aid in recovery from injury or surgery.
At Pear, work in Women's Health, and our Exercise Physiologists have a great understanding of changes in your body brought on by pregnancy, birth, menopause, injury and surgery. In particular we work with these patient populations:
Our appointments include exercise delivery, education and support to help you both within the gym and at home. Don't be scared off by our title, we work with you where ever you are starting when it comes to physical activity and exercise.
