Physiotherapists assess, diagnose, treat and work to prevent disease and disability through physical means.
They are experts in movement and function who work in partnership with patients and the multidisciplinary team to maximise a patient’s function.
Exercise Physiologists play an important role as physical activity and exercise specialists as an integral treatment for primary and secondary prevention and the treatment of chronic disease.
Physiotherapists work across a wide variety of clinical areas including but not limited to paediatric to geriatric, neurological to orthopaedic and musculoskeletal and can help to recover from injury, reduce pain and stiffness and increase mobility.
Exercise Physiologists work across a variety of clinical conditions including patients currently with existing injury, that require rehabilitation to improve physical function; and patients in need of lifestyle change through risk factor modification, at all levels of readiness to behavioural change.
Referrals for Inpatient Physiotherapy are received via internal team processes. Physiotherapy Specialist Clinics eligibility include single service referrals from Bendigo Hospital wards and other inpatient public hospital within 30 days of inpatient admission.
We value feedback from patients, family members and carers.
