Regain function and strength after spinal surgery or injury
Arcadia Pittwater’s inpatient spinal rehabilitation program is for individuals who are recovering from spinal surgery or have had a recent injury to the spine.
This specialist rehabilitation program is based on a multidisciplinary approach with input from your surgeon or specialist, rehabilitation consultant, physiotherapist, occupational therapist and/or hydrotherapist.
We will assess your function and limitations and discuss your goals with you, to develop a program specifically tailored to your ability, needs and goals. Your program is likely to include a gentle strengthening program for the core and affected muscles and a graded walking program with the aim of progressing towards a gradual return to your baseline function.
We maintain communication with your specialist throughout your admission to ensure your rehabilitation program supports and enhances your current treatment plan. You will have regular reviews with your rehabilitation consultant to monitor any pain and progression.
There is a strong focus on education throughout the program to help you understand your condition and enable you to return to everyday activities as your body continues to heal.
Spinal rehabilitation programs are available as either an inpatient program or day program.
