Conditions Primarily resulting in Physical Impairments
Losing a limb or part of it can be traumatic and life-changing. We will do a thorough assessment of your needs and develop a rehabilitation program specific to your functional goals. Depending on your amputation, you may require a prosthesis, walking aids and other relevant assistive technologies to make your life as functional and independent as possible. We can assess you for the relevant assistive technologies and apply for them via NDIS. We will develop a sustainable, always progressing strengthening and stretching program to help you improve your functional ability. An individualised rehabilitation program is paramount during the recovery and maintenance process.
Spinal Cord Injury
Our NDIS team is experienced in working with participants with all forms of Cerebral Palsy. We understand the need for our interventions to be specific to addressing your personal challenges. Regardless of the severity, there is a lot that our therapist can do to help with improving independence and achieving NDIS goals.
In addition to providing therapy, we can assess, prescribe and apply for assistive technologies via NDIS to help you with your functional ability. Our therapist is well versed in neuroplasticity and specialised skills that can help you improve your functional ability and prevent secondary complications such as joint contractures, muscle wasting, pressure sores etc.
Neuroplasticity: the ability of the brain to form new and reorganise damaged neural pathways.
Our NDIS Physiotherapist will work with you to slow the rate of disability by maintaining and improving the strength of your muscles. Early intervention with a skilled therapist is important to prevent the development of further secondary complications and to maintain and improve your functional ability where possible. We can do therapy in any environment which is preferred by you. Should you require any assistive technologies to help with your function, we can assess, prescribe and complete the application reports to NDIS.
