What is Exercise Physiology?
Exercise Physiology aims to prevent or manage acute, sub-acute or chronic disease or injury and assist in restoring physical function and health through exercise intervention.
An Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) has completed a 4 year university degree. This allows them to work as a qualified allied health professional, equipped with the knowledge and skills to deliver safe and effective exercise prescription for people with cardiovascular, metabolic, neurological, musculoskeletal, kidney, respiratory, mental health and other conditions.
KB Exercise Physiology provides a range of highly effective exercise rehabilitation, assessing the patient’s needs and then designing an appropriate exercise program.
Katherine is passionate about promoting an active lifestyle and healthy living by empowering individuals to become responsible for their own health. Injuries can
be addressed, allowing a patient to exercise accordingly.
KB Exercise Physiology was established in 2007 by Accredited Exercise Physiologist, Katherine Bissett. After completing her university degree and returning home to Swan Hill Katherine was well aware that Swan Hill had few options available for individuals with injuries to exercise safely. Katherine succeeded in helping
individuals enjoy healthy living by becoming more active and so KB Exercise Physiology was born.
KB Exercise Physiology has expanded over the years, initially beginning in a single small room at a medical clinic. Katherine is now based in her own private practice, designed to offer individuals a unique exercise experience. The huge range of equipment and Katherine’s expertise in exercise rehabilitation offers patients a private setting with an individualised approach to their injury management.
KB Exercise Physiology strongly believes that exercise therapy should be available to individuals of all ages, regardless of ability, injury and previous exercise experience.
