Osteoarthritis symptoms can be helped by increasing your levels of physical activity and strengthening your support muscles.

The trick is finding someone who understands your condition, who can help guide you, motivate you, and set up a plan that will work.

Introducing our Exercise Physiologist Adelaide team, Courtney, Lara and Jack, who consult across all our clinics.

Exercise Physiology uses the physiological adaptations of exercise to help treat, manage and prevent chronic conditions that will impact on an individual’s health and well-being.

The benefits of exercise are numerous, and have been extensively researched and proven for many types of arthritis conditions, particularly knee arthritis and hip arthritis.

An exercise physiologist is specifically trained to prescribe the correct type of exercise based on the chronic condition present, and specialises in the treatment of that condition, the management of that condition and the prevention of further chronic conditions in a safe, supervised environment.

If you know that this sounds exactly what you need, then contact us on 1300 189 289 and book an appointment to see one of our team and get started with a plan to get you back on track right away.
