BRAIN INJURY

If you or a loved one have sustained an aquired or traumatic brain injury, rehabilitation will be an essential element of your recovery. Our multidisciplinary team have extensive experience treating brain injury, understanding the complexity and challenges that comes with it, and are dedicated to providing a tailored rehabilitation service.

Your rehabilitation may focus on different areas depending on your needs. Physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and excercise physiology can all play a role depending on your specific goals to relearn how to walk, return to work,  and other areas of everyday life.

You will typically be assessed by one of our neuro physiotherapists or occupational therapists who will design a tailored rehab program to help you meet your full potential as quickly as possible. Each program is based on an evidence-based approach to therapy, drawing on a customised mix of hands-on treatment, specific exercises and rehabilitation technology.

If you are wanting to improve your transfers, walking or arm and hand movement for instance, an intensive burst of therapy supported by a structured home exercise program may be prescribed. You may require a  specialised orthoses to help you walk better.

If you want to improve your strength and fitness, we have a range of group classes and offer an ‘At Your Gym’ program and other return to sport options with our exercise physiology team.

Your treatment typically takes place in our Sydney clinics, in your home or a combination of both depending on your personal circumstances.

Brain Injury Rehabilitation programs can include:

  • Relearning everyday tasks such as walking, transfers and using your arm and hand, with a focus of improving the quality of movement

  • Exercises to build strength and function in paralysed or weak muscles

  • Fitness training to improve your everyday endurance and capacity

  • Balance training to improve standing, dynamic tasks such as walking and reduce the risk of falls
