Orthopaedic Rehabilitation

Whether you have suffered an injury or undergone recent orthopaedic surgery, orthopaedic rehabilitation is an important part of your recovery.  Most orthopaedic patients need assistance in healing, regaining strength and mobility after injury or surgery.  The goal is to enable patients to resume daily activities and get back to work, fitness routines, or hobbies.  President Private Hospital offers specialised orthopaedic rehabilitation programs such as:

  • Orthopaedic surgery (hip/knee/shoulder joint replacement)
  • Spinal injury
  • Recent injury or accident
  • Back pain
  • Limitations in mobility (arthritis)
  • Acute phases of musculoskeletal disease

General Conditioning

Reconditioning is a process that aims to maximise your recovery and restoration of independence after illness or injury, improving cardiovascular fitness, endurance, and general muscle strength, as well as improving your overall quality of life.

Reconditioning is suitable for those who have:

  • Had debilitating injury
  • Recently been bedridden
  • Experienced reduced exercise capacity
  • Experienced limitations in activities of daily living, or who are experiencing personalised weakness

Falls prevention

Falls are the leading cause of unintentional injury in Australians 65 years and older.  Falls prevention aims to break this cycle with both exercise and education to help minimise the risk of falling.

It is suitable for those who:

  • Have had an issue with falls in the past
  • Have an issue their balance

Parkinson’s Exercise Group

For many living with Parkinson’s Disease (PD), treatments have been focused on time-limited symptom management.  However, there is evidence to suggest that exercise can play a vital role in reversing some disease in persons with mild to moderate PD.  This program teaches specific exercises that manage symptoms and aim to modify Parkinson’s Disease through neuroplasticity, targeting increased participation and efficiency through specific amplified movement and general reconditioning, and of course, by making it fun!

Metabolic Reconditioning Program

Metabolic Syndrome is a cluster of metabolic abnormalities and risk factors that increase the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular problems.  A person is diagnosed as having metabolic syndrome when they have three of the following risk factors:

  • Elevated blood glucose level
  • Elevated blood pressure
  • Elevated cholesterol levels
  • Central obesity

The program consists of:

  • Sessions run twice a week for 6 weeks (12 sessions in total)
  • Meals provided at each session
  • Sessions involve 1 hour of aquatic exercise coupled with either land based exercise or educational components from the dietician or exercise physiologist.
