Improve your mobility, flexibility, balance and pain management with support from an ECH Physiotherapist.
Physiotherapy can help to improve joint stiffness and pain as well as recovery from and prevention of an illness or injury.
The services of qualified Physiotherapists are available at all ECH Wellness Centres located at Henley Beach, College Grove, Morphett Vale and Victor Harbor.
What should I expect?
During your initial consultation in your home or at one of the ECH Wellness Centres, your Physiotherapist will seek to understand your goals as well as assess and diagnose your condition.
They will then develop a personalised care plan taking into account your goals, lifestyle and general health.
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 also have access to a range of physical therapy equipment if needed.
Your care plan may also include Aquatic Physiotherapy, which involves moving and exercising in water with the guidance of a trained Physiotherapist. Aquatic Physiotherapy is used to treat musculoskeletal conditions such as arthritis or spinal cord injuries. Clients who have experienced burns, spasticity, stroke, or paralysis may also experience positive results from Aquatic Physiotherapy. Aquatic Physiotherapy is available at ECH College Grove.
Achieve your health goals
All ECH Physiotherapists are highly experienced in working with older people and can provide treatment to address a wide range of health issues, including physical rehabilitation following a stroke and minimising arthritis pain.
If needed, your ECH Physiotherapist can also work closely with your GP and any of your other health practitioners to make sure your care plan is integrated and you can achieve your health goals. You do not need a referral from your doctor to access the services of an ECH Physiotherapist.
No matter your age, ECH Wellness Centre services are available to you on a self-funded basis. If you have private health insurance you may be able to seek rebates from your provider. If you are aged 65 years or over, you may qualify for a Home Care Package (HCP) and you may be able to use some of this funding to access ECH Wellness services, including physiotherapy.
