Matilda Nepean spinal rehabilitation

Regain strength and function after spinal surgery or injury

Our spinal rehabilitation program is for individuals who are recovering from spinal surgery or have had a recent injury to the spine. The program is based on a multidisciplinary approach with input from your surgeon or specialist, rehabilitation consultant, physiotherapist, occupational therapist and hydrotherapist. We will assess your function and limitations and discuss your goals with you, to develop a program specifically tailored to your ability, needs and goals.

Your therapy team will guide you in a gentle strengthening program for the core and affected muscles and a graded walking program with the aim of progressing towards a gradual return to your baseline function. We maintain communication with your specialists throughout your admission to ensure treatment supports and enhances the current treatment plan. You will have regular reviews with your rehabilitation consultant to monitor any pain and progression.

The spinal rehab program has a strong focus on education to help you understand your condition and enable you to return to everyday activities as your body continues to heal.

Spinal rehabilitation programs are available as either an inpatient program or day program.
