The initial assessment will allow you to discuss what your goals of therapy are and what you want to achieve. It will also allow for a physiotherapy assessment to establish what you will need to work on to achieve your goals, to have a baseline and to set out a clear plan.
Depending on your presentation and needs, education and advice may form a large part of this and the first few sessions. Education will have the aim of giving you as many tools as possible to allow you to manage your condition, your program and your recovery as best you can.
Travel costs may apply if travel is required. Contact us to discuss your individual needs further.
The follow up sessions may occur at your home, your gym, a swimming pool, etc based on your specific goals and needs. These sessions will allow to continue with education and advice, therapeutic input or review your assessments and goals. When applicable, the aim eventually will be for you to be as independent as possible with your program and no longer require regular physiotherapy input.
Spark Strength & Balance
In this class, we use a combination of activities and equipment to work on improving balance and strength. One of our favourite pieces of equipment is the Tidal Tank, a small tank with water inside it: the instability and movement of the water assist with encouraging postural adjustments and increases core activation, both essential components when wanting to improve and maintain balance.
The activities are kept low impact and can be tailored to individual needs. Family and carers are welcome to attend to assist and support.
Fee is $30/session.
