We have Exercise Physiologists who offer rehabilitation and conditioning services in a gym, home or hydrotherapy pool setting. Once the patient is achieving or has achieved maximum strength gains within the Hand Therapy clinic they can be referred to the EP for additional therapy.
By strengthening the affected limb(s) with an effective and individualised exercise program they can ultimately achieve the end goal of restoring functional capacity. This can happen faster and be very beneficial with patients needing to return to a physical demanding job.
Physical conditioning services in a gym and/or hydrotherapy setting are typically offered to assist the patient to regain strength and functional capacity at the later stages of their rehabilitation.
Please note this service does require additional approval through WorkCover and Insurers and it has been proven to be a valuable tool in enabling the worker to recommence their working role.
