Clinical Exercise Science

Our multidisciplinary research aims to discover crucial evidence to improve prevention and clinical management programs of various health issues. Current projects included investigating the influence of isometric strength training on blood pressure control, the remote supervision of home-based exercise therapy in patients suffering from diabetes and chronic low back pain, and the effectiveness of physiotherapy and chiropractic rehabilitation programs in chronic neck pain patients, and psychological aspects of recovery. Our research partners include University of Newcastle Physical Activity Research Centre, Assoc Prof Suzanne Snodgrass (physiotherapy), Assoc Prof Vivienne Chuter (podiatry), and Australian Institute of Sport.
