Rehab Physio

At My Local Physio Plus, we have a dedicated Rehab Physio that is able to specifically support you or someone you care for when they are:

  • Returning from hospital
  • Need extra support managing balance challenges.
  • Have a neurological condition or disability such as:
    • Stroke
    • MS
    • Brain Injury
    • Cerebral Palsy
    • Parkinson's

Rehab Physiotherapy is highly beneficial in these circumstances to help patients:

  • Learn how to move again
  • Manage tightness and pain from neurological conditions
  • Improve balance to reduce falls
  • Improve the length and flexibility of tight muscles due to a neurological condition
  • Help re-gain movement after a stroke
  • Help develop strategies to move better with dementia
  • Provide support with creating sustainable home exercise programs to help work towards specific goals

Rehab Physiotherapy input also includes education to help understand the conditions better, and strategies to help them be able to do the things they would like to do.

Working Together

With a personalised focus developed and delivered from our Exercise Studio at our Ridgehaven Clinic, we can also work with our internal Exercise Physiologists to ensure we can provide a holistic approach to your complete rehabilitation and management program.
