Learn more about Community Therapy
We match our clinicians to each client – many of our staff have expertise in different fields – additionally, we attend different courses each year. We ask our clients what their preferences are and partner them with an appropriate clinician.
Our team of expert Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists work strategically to improve our client’s quality of life in meaningful and measurable ways. We support people to achieve their own goals, whether that is to play lawn bowls again, walk up the stairs to the daughter’s house, swim again at the beach or simply move around home with less pain.
People we’ve helped in Wallsend
We met a middle-aged lady that had hip osteoarthritis and it was recommended she had a total hip replacement. The lady was quite upset about this outcome – she lived quite an active life, including skiing and being a ski instructor.
One of her goals was to return to ski instructing, however, she had initially been told by several health professionals that this was an unachievable goal. Upon meeting one of Community Therapy’s Physiotherapists, we decided to move towards that goal together.
Over the weeks and months ahead, we performed basic strength, mobility and balance work together, we were very consistent. That winter ski season, five months after her total hip replacement, she was back spending the whole season ski instructing!
