Private physiotherapy and exercise physiology
Wolper’s physiotherapists are highly trained in treating a wide variety of conditions from injury, post-surgical, illness or concerns related to ageing. Treatment is delivered on a one-on-one basis and is predominantly exercise based with the aim of alleviating pain and restoring function as much as possible.
The Hospital’s accredited exercise physiologists prescribe specific exercises to patients with chronic diseases, illnesses or injuries with the aim of improving or managing their conditions. Treatment involves a one-on-one assessment and goal setting session, followed by individual or small group exercise sessions.
