Physiotherapy Treatment Types

 

At Northern Beaches Rehabilitation, we specialise in the following types of treatments, with expertise to benefit your health needs.

Our highly skilled and specialised therapists have extensive experience treating a variety of neurological conditions. Through collaborative goal setting, patient focused treatment planning and state of the art equipment and therapy, our therapists aim to holistically improve our clients’ quality of life and functional outcomes. We believe each client’s personal attributes and unique injury requires an individual therapy approach, intensity, modality and technique. Through rigorous objective assessments, and our focus on treatment efficacy, we ensure our clients reach their full rehabilitation potential.

Post Operative Physiotherapy

Are you recovering from a recent surgery? Our therapists have been highly involved in the rehabilitation process both in the hospital and at home, so we understand and have the necessary resources that it takes to get you back on your feet!

Home Sessions are part of our service. If you are unable to make it into the clinic post- discharge, we can come to you!

Reconditioning and Fall Prevention

We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for those people who are having difficulty keeping up with their everyday tasks or those wishing to improve their health outcomes whatever the goal may be. We have one-to-one sessions or physiotherapist run group classes dedicated to improving balance, stability, strength and gait. The classes are held within our state of the art gym facility. Our home visiting service is also available to those patients who wish to be seen in the comfort of their home or are unable to access the clinic.

If you or a family member have sustained a fall or several falls, we strongly recommend that you have an assessment to help determine the cause and participate in our falls specific treatment program. There are several factors that can effect your mobility and fitness and most of these can be managed with the right program. Our physiotherapists are able to identify which areas of your health are limiting your ability to participate and therefore can tailor a program specific to your needs and goals.

 

Falls are one of the biggest health issues facing our ageing population.

Our physiotherapists are highly experienced in working with people suffering from arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, hypertension, cardiac conditions, respiratory conditions, complex medical issues and those with chronic pain. If you have any questions about your suitability for our reconditioning or falls programs, please contact us. We recommend a doctors referral prior to commencing.
