Exercise Intervention for people with Musculoskeletal injuries and conditions

Students undertaking a degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology need willing participants for a 6-week exercise program as an academic requirement before commencing their external placements.

The free program will be suitable for people who have previously had low back pain, or have chronic shoulder, hip or knee pain that they are interested in addressing through exercise and physical activity.  

Expression of Interest 

The program will offer clients an assessment, an exercise intervention and prevention solutions to their musculoskeletal issues.

“The program is an essential learning opportunity for our students. The students will conduct an initial assessment, and an individualised exercise rehabilitation program which will consider the client’s occupation and recreational activities”, said Emma Beckman, course coordinator.

This service will be conducted by 3rd year undergraduate and master’s students studying a degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology, under the supervision of experienced clinical staff.

Clients of all ages are welcome. The Program will commence the week of the 27 April 2023 and will run for 6 weeks until the 26 May 2023.

Places are limited, so register your interest immediately.
