Adult Neuro Rehabilitation
Neuro Rehabilitation is a process that aims to optimize a person’s participation in society and sense of well-being. It focuses on people of all ages who have suffered neurological injury or disease, such as Stroke, Brain Injury, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neuron Disease, Spinal Cord Injury or Dementia.
We also offer LSVT BIG which is a specific 4-week therapy programme aimed at treating people with Parkinson's Disease.
Physical Rehabilitation is devoted to evaluating and treating clients with functional impairment due to physical injury or disease. This may be due to Orthopaedic Conditions, Burns, Joint Replacements, Surgery, Amputations, Nerve Injuries, Fractures or General Weakness following lengthy hospitalisation or a medical illness.
Paediatric Rehabilitation & Early Intervention
Paediatric Neuro Rehabilitation & Early Intervention focuses on treating babies and young children with movement and coordination difficulties or developmental delays which could be as a result of birth complications, trauma, injury, preterm birth or disease.
We have rooms at Midstream Hill Medical Park and provide acute care to adult and paediatric clients at Midstream Mediclinic. The goal of Occupational Therapy in acute care is to improve functional status and safety to prevent physical and cognitive complications. Occupational Therapists work closely with the multidisciplinary team and assist clients and family with improving function, identifying their equipment needs and safe discharge planning.
