Physiotherapy Sydney

Rehab Physiotherapy Sydney

Physiotherapy can help you recover from your injury or assist you to better manage your illness. If you have a disability, physiotherapy can help to improve your strength, movement and flexibility. Achieve your goals with physiotherapy – one of our most popular disciplines at Royal Rehab.

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is an allied health discipline that uses physical techniques to help to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. This is achieved through personalised exercises, stretching, balance retraining and task specific practice enabling the nervous system and muscles to work together to re-learn movement.  

Our physiotherapists at Royal Rehab in Sydney work as part of a multidisciplinary team of allied health professionals to support you to achieve your goals.

Physiotherapy is particularly beneficial if you have been affected by major trauma, require rehabilitation post-surgery, have a neurological condition such as Parkinson’s diseasemultiple sclerosis or have experienced a stroke. At Royal Rehab, we provide treatment to adults over 16 years of age.
