Home Visits

Sometimes it is not physically possible make the trip to the physiotherapy clinic, there are a number of reasons why. At Albany Creek Physiotherapy we are aware of these situations and recognise that the treatment needs to come to you.

Some of the things you might need us to come to your home for could include:

A recent fall: you might be looking bruised and find moving around difficult let alone driving. We can come to your home and assess your injuries. We could provide some "hands on" physiotherapy treatment and later develop series of exercise to target the weakness or reason for the fall. We could walk in and around your home and help identify falls risks. We could look at toilet seat heaths, showering safety, furniture type and placement to name just a few ideas.

Orthopaedics: You might have had a recent trauma or a planned joint replacement. You are home from hospital and finding things harder than you thought! We can assess your needs, plan some short, medium and long term goals. We can provide treatment and prescribe exercises to be done right in your bed or living room. This is a sure way to optimise your recovery.

Chest Infection: We would be happy to reduce the spread of infection in your community! When you have a chest infection breathing is hard work. We might need to come to your home to deliver the chest physiotherapy treatment you need to manage breathing better. Contact us to come to your home.

Back and neck pain: When certain parts of your spine get injured the pain can be debilitating. You feel you cannot move at all and getting into a car to drive to clinic feels like a physical impossibility. Contact us to come to you to provide your "hands on" physiotherapy treatment. We can talk you through some treatment options that will help to manage your pain. We can assess your spine to see if physiotherapy treatment is appropriate and guide you through some important exercises that will aide your recovery.

Neurological Conditions: You or one of your loved ones may have been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. You might have been discharged from hospital following a stroke (CVA). If you are feeling daunted by theses types of diagnoses and need some help navigating a management plan, contact us. We will assess your physical abilities and plan some treatment goals you want to achieve. We could provide treatment in your home if you require it.

Occupational / Workplace Rehabilitation Visits

This service can extend from corporate workstation assessments to factory pre-employment screenings.

Do you have high rates of worksite injuries or possibly spend a lot of money through work cover?

We have staff with special interest in occupational health. We have experience in pre-employment screening, risk assessment manual handling and worksite treatment clinics.

On a worksite assessment we could vary our services from providing workstation information to addressing a specific concern for an employee.

One of the key factors in efficient return to work case management is a graduated plan. A staged plan of suitable duties and work hardening exercises. We are able to start at the very beginning: home visits to gym visits to worksite visit.

Contact us for any work related questions you have.

Hydro/Pool Treatments & Exercise

·         hydrotherapy means treatment or exercise in water. This is usually conducted in a heated pool that ranges between shoulder and waist deep and is heated between 30-34 deg C.

·         The benefits of exercising in the water are many:

·         There is an increase buoyancy and decrease in gravity which is great for painful, stiff and swollen joints.

·         We will help you establish a programme that could include: pain management, restoring the functional range of movement of your joints as well as strengthening your muscles. There will be other people working in the pool along side you giving you the opportunity to meet like minded people. This group interaction has been proven beneficial to improve both motivation and mood.

·         One of the most common conditions we use hydrotherapy to help manage is osteoarthritis. As you may be aware osteoarthritis can lead to a downward spiral of joint pain, stiffness swelling and ultimately weight gain. This results in a poorer quality of life. We love to help put an end to this negative cycle of event!

·         The heated pool is a great place to exercise joints affected by arthritis be it knees, hips shoulders or spines. The water relieves the effects of gravity, the warmth is helpful for soothing some of the discomfort and we can set a graduated programme to suit your starting point. You may be trying to stave off some surgery or recently undergone some. Please contact us if you think this might be helpful to you.

·         On the flip side you might be in great shape, an established exerciser, an active sports person with a short term injury! Exercise in the water can help maintain your high level fitness without over stressing your injury site to enable it to recover in an optimum time frame. Water like weights, offer the benefits of resistance. Deep water running is a great cardio workout when dry land and treadmills are off the programme.

·         Contact us to find out if this is an option that might help your current injury.

·         We usually operate out of Albany Creek Leisure Centre in Albany Creek, please let us know if you have another location and we can discuss the possibility of seeing you there.

Gym Visits

Our staff are empathetic when clients are trying to navigate their way around a gym following and injury. We realise that as an individual you may not manage a particular resistance or number of sets. You might be going very well in your post op regime and be looking for some lateral expansion in your programme before your surgeon allows you to progress to the next phase in your rehab.

At Go Rehab a physiotherapist with meet you at your gym, discuss your needs and limitations. They will then work with you (and any PT you have) to form an individual programme to meet your needs. They can demonstrate the exercises and give you some cues or reminders to work on as you do your programme.

We find a large proportion of our gym visits benefit our Workcover clients in particular. Alongside some "hands on" physiotherapy treatment in our rooms or at your home, we are able to work on suitable duties. We can then tailor an exercise programme around such duties. This can form part of a "work hardening" programme.

Contact us to book a visit at your gym.
