What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy aims to help you to optimise your mobility, function and independence.. Physiotherapy takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing. This means that the person’s general lifestyle as well as medical condition is taken into account.   It is the fourth largest healthcare profession in the world and addresses problems with movement, dysfunction and pain. These can arise from musculoskeletal, neurological, respiratory, and chronic disability conditions, or from mental illness and intellectual impairment.

The physiotherapy department in  Nawinna Medicare Hospital strives to provide an in-patient and out-patient service that is based on high standards of care and quality. Staff work closely with medical, nursing and other allied health staff. Goals are achieved through comprehensive assessment with individualised treatment combining education, continuous support, home exercise programmes and advice, using knowledge from our extensive scientific background of human anatomy and physiology to provide optimum quality patient care and there is a strong commitment to the philosophy of multidisciplinary work.
