Rehabilitation Services Sunshine Coast – What We Do

Assessment and treatment of injuries or illness

Are you currently living with an injury, which is causing you pain and preventing you from enjoying the quality of your life?

Or have you been diagnosed with an illness and feel confused about what to do next?

Injuries and ills can keep you awake at night and restrict your ability to enjoy a full night’s sleep. Injuries can impair your ability to move freely at work, sport or even in daily lifestyle activities. Don’t ignore these symptoms, come and see our team!

Our rehabilitation service is fully supervised by our dedicated team of Accredited Exercise Physiologists. Initially we assess the nature of your injury or illness and gather a full medical history, which can affect your ability to exercise. If you are currently seeing a medical practitioner or allied health professional we will work in conjunction with them to provide a well-rounded service.

Once an assessment has been conducted our Exercise Physiologists will design an individually tailored program that meets your needs and goals.

An Exercise Physiologist is an allied health professional that uses exercise as their medicine. This profession differs to physiotherapy, which involves treatment of acute injuries. An exercise physiologist will treat musculoskeletal injuries in the sub-acute stage (following initial treatment). An Exercise Physiologist can also use exercise to work with the following conditions:

  • Cardiovascular disease treatment and prevention
  • Diabetes management
  • Neurological conditioning
  • Cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Weight loss
  • Falls prevention
  • Pain management
  • Corporate health
  • Work cover
  • Department of Veteran Affairs

Each health condition is assessed on an individual basis and is treated in one on one sessions with our Exercise Physiologists.

Can I claim a Private health rebate?
Yes, our Exercise Physiologists are registered through Medicare, which allows them to claim through the Medicare scheme, DVA and private health insurers (Bupa, NIB, AHM, MBF and many more). If you are unsure about your level of private health cover, come in and visit us and we can provide you with a quote to see what your rebate will be.
