A rehabilitation physician works closely with other medical colleagues and allied health professionals to develop a rehabilitation treatment program and regularly review rehabilitative goals. Some specialised programs include neurological, spinal, paediatric and amputee rehabilitation.
At Gleneagles Hospitals, our clinical rehabilitative team specialists in musculoskeletal physiotherapy evaluate various techniques that can help identify specific problems that are causing pain and disability. Each therapist makes use of the latest research-based protocols and treatment plans, individually created and tailored to fit every patient's goals.
To ensure that your treatment is working correctly, all our physiotherapists keep close contact with you and your physicians so that progress is logged, and ultimately recovery is in sight.
But in order for results to be achieved, Gleneagles Hospitals encourages a partnership between both the patient and the therapist. We hope that patients take a more active role in their own recovery and stress that education and self-care as well as at-home exercise programmes straight from the very first visit.
