Physiotherapy

Our Physiotherapy Department provides a specialised service to people who have difficulty moving because of injury, disease or life changes.

Our services

We provide Physiotherapy Services at Caboolture Hospital and Kilcoy Hospital. We aim to improve your physical movement and prevent further problems by:

  • providing pain relief strategies and treatment
  • evaluating and optimising your movement patterns (identifying the way you move and treating muscle imbalances and joint problems)
  • restoring your joint range and muscle function
  • helping you recover from surgery
  • promoting functional independence (helping you do daily tasks as well as possible)
  • designing and teaching individualized home exercise programs and teaching self-management strategies.
