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. Exercise Physiologists use movement and exercise in conjunction with specific education and motivational guidance to treat and manage your conditions.

Sports & Spinal’s accredited Exercise Physiologist can assist with Diabetes & Obesity, General Health & Wellbeing, Mental Health Issues, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Neurological Conditions, Strength & Conditioning, Women’s Health, Aging, Chronic Pain, Fatigue, Cardiovascular, Pulmonary, Paediatrics and Cancer.

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.

Finally! Winter warming recipes will be making their way back into the kitchen. As it gets cooler, it can be tempting to overindulge ourselves with big warming meals. 
 
Here’s a healthier version of a winter favourite for you to try this season! 

Ingredients 
🥧30g butter 
🥧2 tbsp plain flour 
🥧1 1/2 cups curry sauce (red curry) 
🥧200g sweet potato, cut into 1cm pieces 
🥧1/2 bunch broccolini, trimmed 
🥧4 cooked chicken drumsticks 
🥧1 cup fresh coriander leaves 
🥧5 sheets ready-rolled puff pastry 
🥧1 egg, lightly whisked 
🥧sesame seeds 
 
Step1 
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove from heat and whisk in curry sauce. Return to heat and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until sauce comes to the boil. Simmer for 1 minute. Set aside to cool. 

Step 2 
Cook sweet potato and broccolini in separate microwave-safe dishes on HIGH (100%) power for 2 to 3 minutes and 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, respectively, or until just tender. Chop broccolini into pieces. 

Step 3 
Preheat oven to 220°C. Remove chicken meat from bone and shred. Stir chicken, sweet potato, broccolini and coriander into cooled sauce. 

Step 4 
Use a 10.5cm cutter to cut 12 circles from 3 sheets of pastry and use to line 12 x 1/2-cup muffin pans. Divide filling among pastry. Use an 8.5cm cutter to cut out 12 circles from remaining pastry. Brush 1 side of circles with egg. Place, brushed-side down, on top of pies. Press edges to seal. With a sharp knife, cut 2 slits in the top of each pie. Brush with a egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds. 

Bake in a 220°C oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until puffed and golden - then dig in!

@sportsandspinalspringfield Testing out their strength with their VALD tech 💪🏻

The team took it upon themselves to have some friendly competition with their new VALD technology and we love to see it! 

In this video the team tested both the clinician and admin team members grip strength with the new VALD Dynometer! 

Did you know that Grip Strength can be used to assess general overall upper limb strength and assess for asymmetries? This can be a very useful monitoring tool for those with upper limb injurious or concerns. Additionally, higher scores are also associated with:

- increased longevity,
- decrease risk of cognitive decline and dementia,
- decreased falls risk and,
- may also be a reliable predictor for stroke and heart disease.

Our VALD technology can be used for so much more and provide you with a great amount of information to assist you in your rehabilitation and health journey 🫶
