Exercise physiology

If you have an injury, medical condition or disability that could benefit from a program of exercise or activities, Biosymm’s exercise physiologists can help.

At Biosymm, we understand the importance of healthy and pain-free movement and function to maintain our busy independent daily lives.

Our expert exercise physiologists can provide you with a personal program of exercise interventions and activities to support your health, recovery and reduce or manage your pain.

This is not a personal training plan with membership or subscription fees. It’s a tailored exercise plan developed just for you.
