Our Day programs are directed by a Rehabilitation Specialist, with the physiotherapists implementing treatment to enable patients to achieve the highest level of ability and functional independence.


Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.

Physiotherapists will start by performing an assessment to understand your main problems and how they can help you. A treatment plan will then be developed after understanding your goals and how you would like to be helped. Treatments may involve ‘hands on’ manual therapy, exercise therapy or education for self-management of conditions. Hydrotherapy or gym-based exercise programs may also be incorporated into your treatment plan.


Hydrotherapy is a water-based treatment often used in conjunction with other therapies for the gentle relief of pain. Warm water exercises help strengthen muscles, reduce pain and improve balance and flexibility.

Our hydrotherapy service is accessible for people of all abilities, with a gentle slope access and handrails throughout. The pools are maintained at a therapeutic temperature range of 32-34°C and are supervised at all times to ensure ongoing safety.


Your day program is designed to achieve the highest level of independence. If required your day program may also include intervention from an occupational therapist, social worker and/or dietician.

If your hospital program is covered by private health insurance or Veterans' Affairs, the account will be sent directly to the relevant organisation. If it is covered by Workers' Compensation or transport accident schemes, approval must be sought to your admission.

Should a patient wish to pay for their treatment independently, the fee structure will be explained before commencement.

The following type of clothing is recommended

  • Day clothes that are loose fitting eg t – shirts, shorts tracksuits
  • Swimsuits
  • Outdoor shoes (walking shoes)

Your program will be specifically tailored to your needs and may include two physiotherapy services and on hydrotherapy session each day.
