Exercise Physiologists

Unison Health are your local Exercise Specialists, who understand how to exercise the body to it’s full potential regardless of what medical or physical limitations you may or may not have.  We focus on Exercising Right and Exercise as Medicine. We are registered allied health professionals, and as such can work with Medicare,  NDIS, Private Health Insurers, DVA and Workcover.

Why choose Unison Health over a Personal Trainer? 

Personal Trainers are fantastic,  known for their high levels of motivation, but they have limited knowledge when it comes to working with injuries and medical conditions.  They complete a 6-8 week course to obtain their certification, where as  we  complete a minimum of 4 years of university study to become accredited. During this time we gain extensive knowledge in:

  • anatomy and physiology
  • medical conditions and medication interaction
  • movement patterns from childhood to older age
  • injuries, bio-mechanics and rehabilitation
  • strength and conditioning
  • nutrition
  • sports medicine and sports performance
