Professional Physiotherapy Services
We recruit warm and passionate Physiotherapists who really love their work and we believe it shows in the holistic improvements we strive for. We offer:
- Private home visits
- NDIS Physiotherapy supports
- Rehabilitation programs
- Empathy as well as therapy
We work with patients to perform holistic, evidence-based rehabilitation to improve physical capacity (strength, mobility, reflexes, balance, endurance) and manage pain.
How Our Physiotherapists Help
Strength is the ability of a person’s muscles to overcome resistance. It is a key attribute towards living a functional life.
During the first Physiotherapy sessions, our wonderful clinicians will explore the strength of our patient with various assessments. This will provide great insight into the patient’s strengths and weaknesses. We can then use this to formulate exercise prescriptions and work towards the patient’s goals.
Strength is improved through resistance training, which can be performed with either bodyweight exercises or weights or simply with functional activities such as sitting to standing. Each session, we will aim to improve upon our last and gradually build strength over time.
Managing and Lowering Pain
It’s important to first understand the type of pain the patient is experiencing in order to effectively treat it. Pain can be acute, chronic, or neuropathic — each requires a different treatment approach.
Total Health Physio adopts a multidisciplinary and holistic approach to pain management.
Depending on the type of pain, additional approaches such as physical therapy, respiratory health, equipment prescription and education can be effective as well. Our Physiotherapists will guide our patients through the appropriate treatment pathways.
With Trust, Compassion & Care, there are lots we can do to help the community lower or manage their pain.
Mobility is essential for emotional health, safety, weight management, overall health and enjoying life. Total Health Physio helps people develop wellness through their mobility, which is comprised of:
- Joint flexibility
- Range of motion
Our Physiotherapists create exercise programmes that are specific to each patient’s needs. We also create a tailored home exercise program which can be accessed digitally or printed.
We make our sessions fun – an example of an innovative falls prevention game is where the patient balances and touches lights set up on the floor. The goal is to react to the light and move their foot towards the light-enhancing reaction time, reflexes and balance.
With work and dedication from Total Health Physio, we can help many individuals maximise their mobility through Physiotherapy!
What To Expect During Physiotherapy
What is the initial assessment like?
During initial home visits, we work with the patient to complete a comprehensive assessment of their current condition.
Our friendly therapist will build a rapport and note the patient’s history and limitations. We’ll ask the patient what their presenting complaint is, their complaint history, their medical history and medication.
What types of Physiotherapy will we do?
We assess the patient’s physical attributes (namely upper/lower limb function, balance, transfers, functional capacity and safety). We take outcome measures that allow us to measure our performance over time. From there, we’ll formulate short-term and long-term goals and create a treatment plan. This may include:
- Strength exercises
- Respiratory conditioning
- Balance exercises
- Joint mobilisation
- Hands-on therapy, soft tissue massage, manual therapy
Once a plan is in place, together with trust, we will perform the treatments together. For example, for a patient recovering from a stroke, we may work on gait retraining, contracture management and safe transfer practices.
