Exercise is a form of Medicine prescribed by Exercise Physiologists.

Exercise is an integral treatment for most of the top ten chronic illnesses in our society today. For conditions ranging from Diabetes to Osteoporosis and Depression, regular exercise is one of the most potent treatments for the underlying mechanisms of the disease.  But the question being what type of exercise do I need to do and how do I do it safely?

You need to consult with an Exercise Physiologist.  The Exercise Physiologists’ at B Mee will take you through an initial assessment and then design and prescribe a correct exercise program to improve your day to day living.

Recent reports indicate the incidence of Diabetes is on the rise with a 50 per cent increase in diagnosed cases since 2007.

If you are in this statistic, did you know that exercise is a form of treatment for Diabetes, and it may decrease your blood sugar levels, and in turn lessen your medication usage and give you a whole new lease on life?

The Exercise Physiologists’ at B Mee will take you by the hand and put you on the right track.

Most people may still not be aware of the benefits that an Exercise Physiologist can offer.  An Exercise Physiologist is university qualified and has studied exercise as a form of treatment for an injury or as it is now being stated as a form of medicine for many health concerns.  If you are someone who has been suffering with long term pain, or a has a health concern such as high blood pressure you need to consult the team at B Mee so they can help manage your problem through designing and structuring an exercise routine specific to you.  From water therapy, to gym programs, to walking routines to home exercises there are many forms of treatment that can be offered.

How can an Accredited Exercise Physiologist help?

Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) hold a four-year university degree and are Allied Health Professionals who specialise in the delivery of exercise for the prevention and management of chronic diseases and injuries. AEPs provide support for clients with conditions such as Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes, Osteoporosis, mental health problems, Cancer, Arthritis, Pulmonary Disease and more.

AEPs are eligible to register with Medicare Australia, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs and WorkCover and are recognised by most private health insurers.

You might see an AEP to help you:

  • overcome persisting pain caused by injury or overuse
  • improve your heart health
  • rehabilitate following a cardiac event
  • control your Diabetes
  • prevent pre-Diabetes from progressing to full Diabetes
  • improve your recovery following Cancer treatment
  • improve your general health and well being.

AEP’s perform body composition tests and musculoskeletal assessments; and provide lifestyle education to help people manage their health conditions.

In Australia, we have the unique situation where we’re working backwards. We have the existing resources and infrastructure including the specialised workforce of Exercise Physiologists and the Medicare subsidies which enable Australians to access these services, but we need to significantly increase our activity levels as 70% of Australians are not active enough.

Accredited Exercise Physiologists are allied health professionals, providing exercise and lifestyle therapies for the prevention and management of chronic disease, injury and disability.
