Physiotherapy for a better recovery

On the ward our highly trained orthopaedic physiotherapists provide early involvement to assist patients to regain movement, strength and maximise independence following injury or surgery.

The physiotherapists from Normanby Physiotherapy work in partnership with the doctors and nurses to provide personal care to facilitate optimal recovery. This may include exercises, prescription of walking aids, gait re-education, education on slings and braces and advice on dos and don’ts, or referral to outpatient services as appropriate.

Our team's priority is your recovery and safe discharge to a rehabilitation centre or home.


You may need ongoing physiotherapy and support prior to returning home and this is available at a number of rehabilitation centres. This will be discussed with you during your hospital stay and should this be required you will be visited by the Discharge Planner who will be able to give you all the relevant information.
