Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that assesses, diagnoses, treats and works to prevent disease and disability.
Physiotherapists are experts in movement and function and work to help you overcome movement disorders which may have been present from birth, acquired through accident or injury or the result of ageing or life-changing events.
Our team of more than 20 physiotherapists and allied health assistants will work with you to improve your physical function and quality of life.
You may be a patient in any of the medical or surgical units, obstetrics or paediatrics. Outpatients in community rehabilitation programs or from our amputee or specialist clinics or Gippsland Cancer Care Centre also receive physiotherapy.
You’ll be referred for physiotherapy by a doctor or other health professional. On some wards, all patients are routinely seen by physiotherapists.
A physiotherapist will provide you with an initial assessment and treatment. If you need ongoing treatment you will be re-assessed regularly.
Your treatment will occur in the ward or at the physiotherapy gym in the Allied Health Department at Latrobe Regional Hospital and sessions may include hydrotherapy in our pool.
