AEPs specialise in working with people living with a wide variety of health conditions, including cardiovascular, neurological, metabolic, musculoskeletal, respiratory and mental health conditions.

At Gen Health, our exercise physiologists use  evidence-based practice to guide and inform treatment. They stay up to date with the latest research and use this knowledge to guide individualised treatment plans.

What should I expect at my initial appointment?

An initial appointment with an AEP revolves around gathering information about you and your current state of health and wellbeing. A thorough subjective assessment is carried out to understand you and your lifestyle, gather information about past and present medical conditions, and set goals for treatment.

Objective measurements will then be taken to set baseline measurements for treatment and track progress. There are many different types of objective measurements that can be taken.

These may include:
