Our physiotherapists are experienced in the treatment and management of spinal cord injury. Post-discharge from hospital it can be a daunting experience for anyone post spinal cord injury. Our physiotherapists are armed with the knowledge to continue your treatment straight out of hospital and can tailor your program towards your community-based goals. Utilising the Capacity Building Centre, each client has a tailored program specific to their needs and aspirations.
For those who have been living in the community since discharge, our physiotherapists can work closely with your team to maximise your physical function in the context of your day-to-day life.
Many of our physiotherapists have worked in the acute and rehabilitation hospitals located in the Illawarra, Shoalhaven and Sydney.

They also have access to their occupational therapist and exercise physiologist all under the same roof.
