CQUniversity’s Certificate IV Fitness students find out more about chiropractic care thanks to a recent visit from Dr Rod Le Coz (Grays Chiropractic) (left) and Fitness teacher Linda Nugent.

CQUniversity’s Certificate IV in Fitness students were given great insight into the area of chiropractic science recently, thanks to an industry visit from Dr Rod Le Coz, owner of Grays Chiropractic. 

Rod spoke about the role of chiropractic care in maintaining spinal health and the positive effects this has on the nervous system. 

Students were given information on how chiropractic care can assist in all ages, from babies to seniors, as well as assisting with a range of complaints, from behavioural problems to back injuries. 

CQUniversity fitness teacher Linda Nugent said it was a great opportunity for up-and-coming personal trainers to recognise the importance of linking with allied health professionals to provide the best outcomes for clients. 

“Having access to as much relevant health information as possible enables personal trainers to make the best possible decisions regarding training program content,” Linda said.  

“These decisions will affect the progress and success of training so the more the trainer knows the more effective training can become.”

“Allied Health professionals can assist the trainers with guidelines for any specific health issues they have treated and, if done correctly, a combination of these guidelines and the appropriate exercise choices will give the best outcome for the client.”
