Dandenong Oasis has an Accredited Exercise Physiologist available for consultations.

Exercise Physiologists specialise in the prevention, treatment and management of chronic disease and injuries through exercise. Our Exercise Physiologist will work in conjunction with your other treating health professionals (e.g. GP, physiotherapist, dietitian) to develop a tailored exercise program which includes: exercise delivery, advice and support, and assistance with successfully changing lifestyle behaviours.

Our physiologist provides individual and small group consultations in both the gym and hydrotherapy pool onsite.

Our Exercise Physiologist can help with the following conditions:

  • Diabetes (Type I, II and Gestational)
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Arthritis and Osteoporosis
  • Obesity and weight management
  • Anxiety, depression and other mental health conditions
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea
  • Back pain
  • Workplace injuries
  • Stroke and neuromuscular conditions

Consultations

Your initial consultation will involve an assessment to determine your health status, exercise history and current physical abilities. They will then develop a home, gym or pool based exercise program for you and explain how the prescribed therapy will help to treat or improve your condition. You'll work together to determine your exercise and health goals, and strategies to achieve these goals.

Ongoing sessions will provide you with a clearer understanding of the correct postures and exercise movement patterns, which can be transferred from the exercise sessions into everyday life.
