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.

WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF US

I had a remedial massage by Kim whilst holidaying at Broadbeach. I was treated professionally from the time of booking to the time of walking out the door after the best massage I have ever had. Kim also gave me tips on how to manage my issues. If I lived on the Gold Coast -I would without a doubt be one of her loyal clients.Unfortunately I don't -but I would definitely highly recommend Kim and this practice.Thank you again for looking after me.Kind regardsMargaret D
I’ve had a really great experience at Raw Therapies. I saw Scott and feel he genuinely cares about my lower back issues. He’s now on a mission to help me overcome my pain issues and really is going above and beyond to assist me. My experience at Raw Therapies has been much more helpful than other physios or chiropractors I've seen in the past and would strongly recommend to anyone.
I had an initial appointment with physio Marina for sciatic pain, she was wonderful, figured out the cause of my pain, created a management plan for me, gave me treatment and answered all of my questions. Very efficient but I didn’t feel rushed, and she was very personable and easy to talk to. I also found the front desk staff friendly and booking process easy. Would highly recommend!
Thoroughly enjoyed my pregnancy massage with Adrian this week. Professional and knowledgeable. Best pregnancy massage I’ve had yet. The whole team were friendly from the moment I walked in the door! Thank You.
I have been seeing Adrian for my massage for the last 2 years. He is simply incredible. Not only does he work so well with understanding my body and its needs. He also has the most gentle healing energy that leaves me feeling like I’m floating through air afterwards. I’m so grateful to have found Adrian and would recommend him as a 10/10
This was my first visit here. I saw Alex, I highly recommend him as he has a lovely demeanor and makes you feel comfortable immediately.He educated me and the treatment he provided has had results only hours after.I will be back.Kim Ford
I have been visiting this clinic for a few years now and have never been disappointed, always accomodating and happy to help. The care and service by Nick and Marina is exceptional and I always leave feeling brand new!
I have been brilliantly treated for over 2 years by Adrian the best ever Masseur.Simply The Best, Better Than All The Rest,Better Than Anyone, Better Than Anyone my Body has ever met.Seriously as a mature age person, with some difficult medical & physical issues, having had Massages once a week even, for many years, Ado is so Caring, Experienced, Knowledgeable, In Tune with my Body & Mind's, needs & wants, & devotes himself to ensuring one gets the BEST Treatment ever, everytime. Thanks Adrian, you keep me going. B
Hands down the best therapist on the Gold Coast. I’ve been going to Adrian every week for 3 years. He understands the body in a way that will ruin you for other therapists.
Thanks to Alex I felt positive about everything he recommended me to do to improve my lower back.The results where due to my age better than I expected!.I’d recommend Alex to anyone who have lower back problems, because mine is on the mend.
This place is fantastic. Have only had 2 sessions with Anna but noticed such a big improvement after just the first. So glad I can across this place, I won’t got anywhere else for remedial massage.
Excellent massage with Adrian today. It was up there with the best ive ever had.
Nick and his team are fantastic.More than just effective treatment, they also guide you through your injury journey to recovery and maintenance.Definitely recommend 100%
The RAW team are hands down one of the most Impressive Physiologists on the GoldCoast & couldn't be more appreciative of the service that they provide,Highly Recommended 10/10
