A Podiatrist is a health practitioner who deals with the prevention, diagnoses, treatment and rehabilitation of conditions of the feet and related structures of the lower limb.
At PhysioFlex we are lucky to have Southport Podiatry working within our Sports & Health Clinic to provide a holistic approach to treating our patients.
Our Podiatrist Aleks Baruksopulo is experienced working within sports medicine clinics and is passionate about working with Physiotherapists to improve patient outcomes.
Exercise Physiology begins with the assessment and monitoring of the acute responses and chronic changes to a thoroughly thought out exercise plan for all types of people in the hope of reducing disease progression like diabetes.
What will Happen?
Our Physiotherapist are both trained in exercise physiology and will initially complete a verbal and physical assessment to gather information about your current and previous dietary and physical habits or routines.
A carefully constructed exercise plan compiling of strength, cardio and flexibility exercises will then be formulated specifically for each individual. You will then also be monitored on a routine basis for modifications, motivation, to provide answers to any questions and to keep moving in the right direction.
