Physiotherapy

On the ward, our orthopaedic physiotherapists provide an early involvement to assist patients to regain movement, strength and independence following injury or surgery. The team's priority is your recovery and safe discharge to a rehabilitation centre or home.

They work in partnership with the doctors and nurses to provide personal care to facilitate optimal recovery. This may include; exercises, prescription of walking aids, gait re-education, education on slings and braces and advice on do's and don'ts.

Rehabilitation

You may need ongoing physiotherapy and support prior to returning home. Rehabilitation will be discussed with you during your hospital stay and should this be required you will be visited by the Discharge Planner who will be able to give you all the relevant information.
