Physiotherapy

"Physiotherapy can help you get the most out of life, whether that means improving your mobility, helping you exercise regularly, or removing barriers that stop you from getting out in the community."

~ Home Caring Disability and Aged Care Specialists

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) physiotherapy is a new approach of providing tailored treatment and assistance to people with disabilities, their families, and carers.

The NDIS provides financing to people with permanent and major disabilities so they can acquire the assistance and services they need to get back on their feet and enjoy life.

Physiotherapy providers who participate in the NDIS are an important element of providing suitable treatments to individuals who need them the most.

Our experienced staff of Physiotherapists has worked with clients who have:

– Multiple Sclerosis

– Stroke

– Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME)

– Cerebral Palsy

– Functional Neurological Disorder

– Spinal Cord Injury

– Psychological Disorders

– Genetic Conditions

We are able to assist you:

– If you are seeking treatment to alleviate your disability’s symptoms

– If you want to improve your strength, mobility, and flexibility

– If you need an exercise regimen to help you cope with the affects of your disability

– If you want to increase your functional ability

– If you want to improve your capacity to interact with others in your community

Melbourne Sports Institute Physiotherapists are actively registered Physiotherapists, registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (APHRA).

Our staff hold a wealth of experience in the profession and have been involved in both clinical supervision and professional development as required by APHRA.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The physiotherapy process can be divided into the assessment, program development, and review stages, as shown below.

Our initial consultation will always be entirely focused on you.
 
This allows our physiotherapists to gain a better grasp of you as a whole, as well as your specific concerns.
 
Our physiotherapists will conduct a thorough patient interview and then personalise treatment to your specific needs.
More significantly, your objectives are essential to us, and they will always be at the forefront of our physiotherapists’ minds when determining how best to meet your needs.
 
Whether you’re looking for pain alleviation or want to become more self-sufficient, we can assist!
We conduct Physiotherapy sessions in the comfort of the participant’s own home or in residential facility. 
 
We collaborate with participants to develop tailored home rehabilitation program and work on the following based on your needs:
 

– Identification of dangers (i.e. falls prevention)

– Addressing your areas to work on which were identified in our initial assessment

– Balance

– Chronic pain management and reduction

– Rehabilitation and strength training

– Mobility

At predetermined program milestones, the participants progress will be measured and evaluated.

Following this evaluation, a collaborative and informed decision can be made towards the future direction of the program.
