The hospital’s modern consulting rooms are equipped to provide the best possible care with some programs offered in its rehabilitation gyms and hydrotherapy pool.

Their physiotherapists assist people affected by accident, injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise; manual therapy; education and advice. They maintain health for adults by helping patients manage pain and prevent disease.

Women’s and Men’s Health is provided by experienced physiotherapists who have specialist knowledge in this area. A variety of conditions are assessed and treated for incontinence and bladder/bowel dysfunction to musculoskeletal complaints of the pelvis using the latest in technology, such as real-time ultrasound.

Exercise physiologists design safe and effective exercise programs specifically for an individual to ensure maximum performance. They also work with people affected by acute or chronic medical conditions after injury, trauma or disability.

Occupational Therapy enables people to participate in their activities of everyday life. Whether it is by a specific exercise program, use of assistive devices or modifying the way we do things, Occupational Therapy provides a practical approach to making life easier.

Services such as dietetics, speech pathology and hydrotherapy complete the comprehensive services now available.

Please call 9788 3331 to inquire and make an appointment. Chronic disease management schemes will require a GP referral/management plan.
