SPECIALIST STROKE REHABILITATION

Dedicated stroke rehabilitation is vital to help in the recovery process. We work with people who have a variety of difficulties following a stroke and as every individual is different, we tailor our rehabilitation programs to you and your recovery needs and goals.

Our approach is multidisciplinary, meaning you can access one or multiple service disciplines from us. Depending on your needs, you may either 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 and draws on a customised mix of hands-on treatment, exercise and rehabilitation technology.

Together with your lead therapist, your program may draw in additional therapy disciplines to work on different aspects of your recovery such as mobility, daily activities and independence, cognition or return to sport and recreation.

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 most appropriate for you. 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 and recreation options.

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