Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy involves the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of human movement, with special emphasis on the musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiovascular systems.

The AWH Physiotherapy team provides inpatient and outpatient care and services for a range of disorders, including arthritis, pain, orthopaedic, musculoskeletal, neurological and respiratory conditions. We also provide services within the subacute, acute, surgical, critical care and women’s and children’s directorates.

Physiotherapy services are provided to all admitted services and community based programs within Albury Wodonga Health including Albury and Wodonga Hospitals, the Community Rehabilitation Centre (CRC), the Transition Care Program (TCP), Continence Clinic, Community Health (CH), the Rural Allied Health Team (RAHT) and the Pain Management Program (PMP).

The Department strives to provide quality, evidence based therapies to assist people to overcome limitations caused by injury, illness or the effects of aging.

Acute Outpatients

The Physiotherapy department offers an Acute Outpatient service from the Allied Health area at the Albury Hospital. This is a free service and can be accessed with a referral from a General Practitioner, medical specialist or health care provider. It provides assessment and treatment for a broad range of acute conditions including musculoskeletal injury or pain, surgical intervention, fractures, headaches, neck or back pain, and women’s health and can include land physiotherapy or aquatic physiotherapy in our onsite Hydrotherapy pool.

The Outpatients Department also offers community groups including Tai Chi, Gentle Exercise and Aquatic Exercise Group.
