Exercise Physiology South aim to provide physical well-being activities for those with permanent and significant disabilities.
As registered exercise physiologists with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), the team at EP South are able to provide a comprehensive and specialised exercise prescription, tailored to the specific needs of the individual and their personal goals.
Exercise physiology services are effective in improving function through improving physical capacity and mobility which are affected by disability.
Practice principal Glenys Williams says that the team at EP South are equipped to help people of all ages and with almost any issue.

“Our main premises are wheelchair accessible and have equipment that can be altered to accommodate abilities and aid in the development of motor control, muscle strength, neuromuscular re-patterning and the development of strength and stability,” Glenys said.
“We also offer exercise in a hydrotherapy pool setting which has excellent access facilities, and we can provide home based exercise sessions for those with more significant mobility issues.
“We can also offer personal training type exercise options. All therapy can be provided in either individual or group sessions. Our exercise physiologists provide support both in an individual and group environment, and develop programs designed to meet your goals.”
One of the most popular and beneficial therapies is a hydrotherapy or aquatic exercise program, which can be done as a group or an individualised program.
Exercise and therapy in water has multiple benefits, including an independence of movement that is not possible on land, decreased swelling, improved circulation and reduced pain, support of body weight, enabling easier walking and general mobility, reduced muscle spasm, allowing relaxation, pain management, improved water confidence and improved fitness.
The exercise physiologists can help with a large range of conditions including:
- Cerebral palsy
- Brain injury
- Downs Syndrome
- Intellectual disability
- Muscular Dystrophy
- Multiple Sclerosis
If you would like to participate in physical well-being activities to improve your function and increase your physical conditioning then please register with the NDIS and talk to a planner.
These sessions can include goal directed strength and fitness programs, working with personal trainers, weight loss programs, chronic disease management and performing other sport and leisure activities.
Representatives from EP South will be available to talk to at the NDIS exposition in Victor Harbor on September 19.
