FAQs about exercise physiology for kids in Sydney

Physiotherapists and exercise physiologists can achieve similar results, but their treatment approaches differ. Physiotherapists diagnose and treat children with physical impairments, disabilities, and health-related conditions and have a clinical, hands-on approach to rehabilitation with manual therapy and exercises.

Exercise physiologists work with children to improve their fitness and well-being, help in weight management, and manage chronic diseases through exercise-based interventions. Their hands-off approach focuses on managing chronic health conditions, disabilities, and fitness.

Our trans-disciplinary team can help make the decision simple, based on your child’s needs.

Our team creates individualised exercise programs for every child, ensuring we tick all the boxes and set your child on a path to a happier, healthier lifestyle. Your child’s exercise program may include:

  • Assessment: The first step is assessing the child’s fitness level, medical history, and specific goals. This may involve measurements of body composition, cardiovascular fitness, strength, flexibility, and functional movement patterns.
  • Goal Setting: Based on the assessment, specific goals are established, whether improving cardiovascular endurance, increasing strength, enhancing flexibility, or managing a specific condition.
  • Exercise Prescription: An exercise physiologist will design a personalised exercise plan that includes the type, intensity, duration, and frequency of exercise. This may involve a combination of aerobic exercises, strength training, flexibility exercises, and balance training.
  • Monitoring and Evaluation: Regular progress monitoring is important to ensure the exercise program is effective. This may involve periodic reassessments, tracking performance, adjusting the program as needed, and providing feedback and support.
  • Physical Activity Education and Lifestyle Modification: Exercise physiology programs often include educational components to promote healthy lifestyle choices. This may involve guidance on nutrition, stress management, sleep optimisation, and behaviour change strategies to help individuals adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
  • Support and Motivation: An exercise physiologist provides ongoing support, motivation, and guidance throughout the program to help individuals stay accountable and motivated to reach their goals.

Determining if your child needs exercise physiology assistance can be based on several factors, like motor skills and coordination, physical capacity, health issues, overall health and wellness, and more.

If you have concerns about your child’s physical health, we recommend contacting our team for an assessment. We’ll develop an exercise program that’s safe, effective, and 100% tailored to your child’s needs.
