Physiotherapy

Our clinicians offer a fully mobile service to provide Physiotherapy services, whether clients live at home, specialist accommodation, shared housing or a residential aged care facility.

How can we help? We have extensive experience working with various conditions, including brain injuries, dementia, MND, MS, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, Parkinson’s Disease, stroke and more. We have many resources on our website covering our success stories for such conditions.

Our Physios are primarily addressing:

  • Helping people improve their strength and mobility to enhance independence
  • Working on balance and endurance to reduce the risk of falls
  • Holistic approaches to helping decrease and manage pain

Our Physiotherapists perform their services through home visits. During the first appointment, we’ll discuss an ideal exercise plan, frequency, your goals and expected duration of our engagement. That way, you can decide if we’re the Physiotherapy provider you’ll place your trust in.

More About Physiotherapy Therapy

Occupational Therapy

Our OTs perform a wide range of duties.

We always start by conducting a home-visit at your residence and will perform a baseline functional assessment that is relevant to your situation. We typically help people with functional rehabilitation, home modifications and equipment prescription.

Our services may also be ongoing in nature, such as helping people adapt to new accommodation, equipment or work towards long-term goals.

We are well-equipped to visit any property type. We have years of experience working in private and rental properties, shared accommodation, retirement villages, and more. Every property has a different ownership agreement or other unique factors that need to be considered.

As an NDIS registered company, our OTs are also able to prescribe Assistive Technology under the NDIS

Our Success Story from the Dandenong Community

Total Health Physio has recently helped a wonderful 54-year-old NDIS participant in Dandenong. He lives with Parkinson’s Disease as well as early-onset dementia. His NDIS Support Worker contacted Total Health Physio because she knew we’d help him live his best life and give 100%.

As the client lives by himself, he needed to improve his mobility and increase his independence around the home. This is a significant challenge because both of the conditions are degenerative, however, our Physiotherapists always look towards the positive and how we can make a difference.

Our team at Total Health Physio have experience helping people with dementia and Parkinson’s Disease. We offer evidence-based care, as well as a caring and professional approach.

We are helping this lovely man work towards his meaningful goals of:

  • Improve balance and prevent falls
  • Reduce his weight by approximately 10 kilograms
  • Improve his overall conditioning
  • Improve strength in his upper and lower limbs

We developed a daily exercise plan which the client now does with his superb Support Worker daily. Our Physiotherapist visits once a week to perform rehabilitation together, track our progress and of course, have a laugh together.

It has been wonderful to watch the client progress with his Physiotherapy. Going outside has become really important to him, and now he can engage in exercise in the sunshine. We all know how fantastic that is not just for the fresh air and vitamin D, but also to re-energise and re-invigorate both mind and body.
