Directions’ physiotherapists are specialists in movement and mobility. We work with individuals to improve their health and wellbeing, including pain management, posture, strength, mobility, flexibility, function and anything that might be stopping them from being mobile in the community.
Directions physiotherapists are registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Registration Agency (AHPRA). We offer specialised equipment consultancy, exercise and fitness, hydrotherapy, postural control and more to improve the daily functioning of individuals, along with the quality and efficiency of their lives at home.
Our physiotherapy team use evidence-based techniques and work with people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to help them achieve their goals. We work closely with other Directions’ teams to provide support that meets our individual’s needs and those of their family members and carers.
The team also provides support with Assistive Technology, physical supports that help individuals do something more easily or safely, ot that they otherwise cannot do because of disability. Examples include speech impairment apps, non-slip mats, special forks to assist eating, wheelchairs and adjustable beds.
