Orthopaedic Rehabilitation Sydney

Royal Rehab Private leads the way in orthopaedic rehabilitation medicine.

Royal Rehab Private operates as part of Royal Rehab, a leading not-for-profit provider of rehabilitation and disability services for over 120 years in Sydney.

Our multidisciplinary team of health professionals under the direction of a rehabilitation specialist will work with you to first assess your abilities and goals, and then develop an individualised plan.

Typically, our orthopaedic rehabilitation programs aim to:

  • increase joint movement and flexibility
  • improve walking
  • increase overall body strength
  • improve balance
  • develop fitness and endurance
Maximising your functional independence is also a priority in areas such as self-care, home activities, carer’s needs and returning to work.

Our nurses are an integral part of the team, and are skilled in all aspects of rehabilitation medicine, including assisting with pain management to help you in your transition back home.

The program includes both gym-based exercise programs and hydrotherapy classes as medically appropriate.
