Regain strength and function after spinal surgery or injury
Our spinal day rehabilitation program is based on a multidisciplinary approach with input from your surgeon or specialist, rehabilitation consultant, physiotherapist, occupational therapist and hydrotherapist. We will assess your function and limitations and discuss your goals with you, and develop a program specifically tailored to your ability, needs and goals.
Your therapy team will guide you in a gentle strengthening program for the core and affected muscles and a graded walking program with the aim of progressing towards a gradual return to your baseline function.
We maintain communication with your specialists throughout your admission to ensure your treatment supports and enhances the current treatment plan. You will have regular reviews with your rehabilitation consultant to monitor any pain and progression.
The spinal rehab program has a strong focus on education to help you understand your condition and enable you to return to everyday activities as your body continues to heal.
