Allied Health

Exercise Physiology

Justin Ockerby is our Accredited Exercise Physiologist. Exercise Physiologists deliver exercise interventions for people with acute, sub-acute or chronic medical conditions, injuries or disabilities. They use exercise to help patients with cardiovascular, metabolic, neurological, musculoskeletal, cancers, kidney, respiratory and mental health conditions.
 
Anybody can see an Exercise Physiologist in a private capacity without a referral, whether you are aiming to be more active for your general health and fitness or to achieve a specific goal such as weight loss, improving mental health, reducing your risk of a chronic condition or to treat an already diagnosed condition.
 
You may also be eligible for a Medicare rebate through a chronic disease management plan implemented by your GP. Justin can also treat patients under Worker’s Compensation, MAIB, DVA or private health.
