Regain strength and condition following illness or surgery on our personalised reconditioning program
Different circumstances and medical illnesses can result in what’s known as “deconditioning”, or a decline in physical independence. Staying physically active can help improve and maintain independence, and enhance your quality of life.
Our reconditioning program is designed to strengthen muscles, maintain balance and improve overall physical function to improve your ability to return independently to your normal activities of daily living.
Who the reconditioning program is for
The reconditioning program is suitable for individuals:
- who are recovering from an acute medical illness or surgery
- have had an exacerbation of a chronic illness
- experiencing an acute exacerbation of inflammatory arthritis with concurrent disability
Reconditioning programs are available as either inpatient programs or day programs.
Enquire about our reconditioning program
