Are you experiencing joint stiffness and pain, or reduced mobility? Are you recovering from an illness or injury?
Physiotherapy might be exactly what you need to get your body moving, and you back to doing the things that you enjoy.
Physiotherapy is also a great tool to prevent illness and injury. Many people choose physiotherapy to assist them in maintaining their balance, flexibility and overall health.
You can access the services of an accredited physiotherapist at one of ECH’s air-conditioned Wellness Centres, located at Henley Beach, Greenacres, Morphett Vale and Victor Harbor. Your consultation with a physiotherapist will be in a completely private setting. If you prefer, your physiotherapist can visit you and conduct a consultation in the comfort of your own home.
During your initial consultation, your physiotherapist will seek to understand your goals, as well as assess and diagnose your condition. A care plan will then be developed which will take into account your goals, your lifestyle and your general health. Your care plan will be tailored to you to make it as achievable and enjoyable as possible.
Your care plan may include joining an exercise program to improve your strength, movement and flexibility, or regular therapeutic massages to release tight muscles, relieve stress and promote relaxation. You will have access to a range of physical therapy equipment if required.
All ECH physiotherapists are highly experienced in working with older people and can provide assistance and therapy with a wide range of health issues. These include physical rehabilitation following a stroke, minimising the painful effects of arthritis, relieving joint pain and improving mobility.
You do not need a referral from your doctor to access the services of an ECH physiotherapist.
If you have a chronic condition, your ECH physiotherapist can also work closely with your general practitioner and any of your other health practitioners to make sure your care plan meets all of your health goals. Speak to your GP about how you might be able to access ECH physiotherapy services under the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS).
No matter your age, ECH Wellness Centre services are available to you on a competitive fee for service basis. If you have private health insurance you may be able to seek rebates from your provider, or if you are aged 65 years or over, you may qualify for the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP), or if you have a Home Care Package (HCP), you may be able to use some of this funding to access ECH’s physiotherapy services and/or other Wellness Services in the comfort of your own home.
