Physiotherapy & Occupational Therapy

Total Health Physio & Allied Health is a provider of Physiotherapy & Occupational Therapy Services to the elderly and NDIS community. We predominantly serve adults (over 18) with a disability and the elderly community.

Our therapists are highly experienced and possess a wealth of expertise across different healthcare verticals. We conduct initial assessments to quantify deficiencies and then establish effective healthcare plans to help people live their best life!

Our staff form strong and compassionate relationships with our patients. We set meaningful goals together – when a goal is meaningful – it is likely the patient will be motivated towards achieving that goal. Treatment plans are tailored towards the individual and scaled (i.e. making the exercises more difficult over time) to ensure our success is measurable.

All of these work together to significantly improve quality of life.

At Total Health Physio our Physiotherapists work with patients to develop evidence-based rehabilitation and strategies to help them live their best life.

Patient Success Stories from Toorak

In 2019, we were referred to a patient who had a recent fall where he fractured his wrist, he was unable to move due to pain and stiffness. We learned that he absolutely loves his morning and afternoon tea. It was his meaningful goal to be able to safely pour and drink his cuppa.

We were determined to achieve this goal. We created an exercise-rehabilitation plan with an emphasis on strength exercises for his hand and wrist, namely:

  • Grip strength tools – increasing resistance as necessary
  • Working with putty (working through the range of motion to close the hand and also tendon gliding)
  • Developing fine motor skills
  • Stretching & mobilisation of soft tissue
  • Prescribed exercises the patient could complete at home

We also implemented our falls prevention strategies and incorporated balance exercises as part of his program to prevent future falls so he can continue living safety in his home.

A few weeks later, he now can steadily and strongly hold his coffee cup, so he can enjoy his morning and afternoon cuppa. One happy gentleman!
