Aged Care - Add life to your years

Physiotherapy​ can help you stay active longer​

Exercise is the best medicine. Sometimes pain or weakness can interfere with staying fit. Physiotherapy can help you to keep your body strong and mobile. Programs can be tailored to improving your balance and co-ordination. The physiotherapists are h​appy to assist you in setting up a suitable and safe program at the local gym, in the pool or at home.

Exercises groups are available which address strength and balance. Please ring and book for these.

Gordonvale Physiotherapy is registered with various Aged Care Providers and is involved with providing physiotherapy services for Short Term Restorative Care Packages.

Post Operative Rehabilitation

Management after surgery

Ideally we would like to see you before you have surgery to plan your rehabilitation. Sometimes a few months of conservative treatment can delay or prevent the need for an operation. After any surgery your body needs a chance to heal and recover. Initially physiotherapy may help with gently moving your ​body so that range of movement is maintained. After a few weeks you will be ready to get your muscles strong and movements b​ack to normal. Physiotherapy can help guide and optimize your rehabilitation.

Paediatric Physiotherapy

Assessment of developmental delays in children

Sometimes babies do not develop as quickly as expected and physiotherapy programs can assist the child to maximize their potential.

We are happy to work with NDIS clients and to assess children for developmental delay. Play based exercises and activities can be developed to address the child and family needs.

Persistent pain

Fi​bromyalgia, Chronic Low Back Pain, Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome, Pelvic Pain

Sometimes pain stays around long after tissues are healed and strong pain medications are not helping. Learning about the nature of pain and how our emotions and personal history can influence what we feel can empower people to impr​ove their quality of life. Helen has done advanced training in pain management through the University of Sydney and Uni SA. She can assist in developing a effective rehabilitation plan. Helen is trained to treat pelvic pain.
