Wheatbelt Health Network has access to numerous allied health services including Physiotherapy. Physiotherapists are highly qualified health professionals who work closely with doctors and other health professionals to plan and manage treatment.
Physiotherapists aim to rehabilitate and improve a person’s ability to move and function. Many people believe physiotherapists mainly work with back and sports related injuries but this only makes up a small part of what they can do. Physiotherapists can help a broad range of patients that fall into the following categories but are not limited to:
- Cancer, palliative care and lymphoedema
- Supporting older Australians
- Occupational health
- Pain management
- Sports physiotherapist
- Acupuncture and dry needling
- Others: Lymphoedema, aquatic and continence
