“Your greatest wealth is health”

Accredited Exercise Physiologists are allied health professionals providing exercise and lifestyle therapies to prevent and manage chronic disease, injury, and disability.

An Exercise Physiologist (EP) is a 4 year, University-trained Allied Health professional who is an exercise prescription expert. They will work with you to design a specific exercise program tailored to your injuries, health status and goals.

Our Exercise Physiologists at Sports & Spinal can help your condition by working with you to formulate an appropriate treatment plan to assist in reaching your specific goals.

Sports & Spinal’s accredited Exercise Physiologist can assist with:

  • Strength & Conditioning
  • Women’s Health

Exercise facilitates changes within the body that increases its efficiency. This allows us to be able to manage conditions or diseases, that can cause our bodies to not function to the best ability.

You can expect our Exercise Physiologist to listen to your personal story and ask questions, so they can work with you to guide an appropriate treatment plan. Our Exercise Physiologist will complete a detailed, goal-focused, clinical, and functional assessment.

Treatment will vary and be specific to you but will likely involve modified movement and exercises to build your capacity and function through strength, fitness, balance, and more. Treatment will change and progress while working alongside your Exercise Physiologist. Our Exercise physiologists will provide education on health, conditions, injuries and what to do and what not to do may take place in different environments, including our onsite gym, your regular gym and pools, depending on your interests and goals. Our Exercise Physiologist believes in a multi-disciplinary approach and will work with other health professionals to help manage your condition.

Chris Flavel

Exercise Physiologist

Chris completed a Bachelor of Applied Science (Human Movement) in 2007 at the University of South Australia. Chris has vast experience across all aspects of Exercise Physiology, including chronic disease management, aged care, orthopaedics, student mentoring, and elite athlete conditioning/rehabilitation.
Chris is a husband and father of 4 active kids and has recently moved to the Sunshine State from South Australia with his family.
Chris’ most recent role was that of Regional Manager at an NDIS provider in Brisbane, where he gained valuable skills within the NDIS. Chris is keen to get back to working with clients to provide professional and personal guidance to activity and health.
Chris loves working with clients to achieve their life goals, with a person/individual-centred approach, promoting activity (fun!) rather than exercise (sounds hard!), recognising everyone is different, and one activity/exercise program won’t work for everyone. You have your own likes/dislikes and goals, and he’ll guide you to achieve them.

Chris is available for Exercise Physiology appointments at our Maroochydore clinic.
