Drew develops indiviualised programs that cater to the specific needs of a client. This is the key to achieving great results.
As no two clients are the same, special thought to what will best fit the client, is necessary for achieving the best outcome.
Using exercise physiology and physiotherapy together
An exercise physiologist and physiotherapist’s role often complement each other, particularly in musculoskeletal rehabilitation and treatment.
A physiotherapist is most often associated with focusing on acute injury or pain management, working on reducing a person’s pain and returning to normal range through movements.
An exercise physiologist’s treatment can often overlap here and extends to improving the person’s strength through exercise to meet their goals.
Who should see an exercise physiologist?
Anyone that can benefit from regular exercise or wishes to take up any form of exercise can benefit greatly from seeing an exercise physiologist.
Drew most commonly treats musculoskeletal issues such as lower back pain, knee pain and shoulder pain. He also has experience training clients with pathologies such as diabetes, cancer and Parkinson’s disease.
Seeing an exercise physiologist can have a lasting impact on a client’s quality of life. Drew has personally seen clients that have struggled for years with chronic conditions that feel dramatically better after sessions with him. He says that having a client show lasting improvements through sessions is the most rewarding part of his job.
