Brisbane Rehab is committed to the delivery of high quality rehabilitation services. Our aim is to use the best available scientific evidence to improve our patient's lives. Aging is an inevitable part of life. For many of us disease intervenes, this leaves one fifth of the Australian population with physical impairment. We may be limited by weakness, restricted movement and pain.
Curative therapy such as surgery and acute medical care are often exhausted at this point. Patients can be left with an inability to engage in previous activities such as work, domestic and recreational pursuits. If rehabilitation is not commenced early many patients find that they lose fitness, conditioning and become isolated, frustrated and depressed. Many patients have difficulty finding their way from here. Rehabilitation can help.
Rehabilitation aims to work within the limits of a patient's disease and improve a person's life. The person is assessed and managed within a global and holistic context. The treatment is individualized to the persons needs.
Rehabilitation is an active process demanding motivation, determination and participation from the patient. We look forward to working with you to help you achieve your goals no matter how large or small.
