Why choose IRIS for your rehabilitation needs?
Our Physiotherapy Centre offers comprehensive neurological assessments, exercise prescription, manual therapy and education for on-going self management. We specialise in providing services for people who have a congenital or acquired neurological condition (acute or longstanding conditions) such as Cerebral Palsy, Stroke, Spinal Cord Injury, Traumatic Brain Injury, Multiple Sclerosis and Muscular Dystrophy. We provide an individualised treatment programme which is tailored to your specific needs. You will be involved in your treatment plan including goal setting with our qualified Physiotherapist. We will also provide you with a home exercise programme to assist you in achieving your goals.
How can Physiotherapy assist you?
Physiotherapy aims to develop, maintain and restore movement and function. Movement and function may be threatened by aging, injury, disease or environmental factors. Physiotherapy can assist you with every day functional tasks and general mobility. The aim of physiotherapy is to achieve maximal health benefits, injury prevention, provide treatment and rehabilitation. Treatment and rehabilitation may vary from person to person, however therapy may include but is not limited to aerobic exercise, strengthening exercise, range of movement, balance training, equipment assessments and mobility re-education.
We can provide 1:1 physiotherapy sessions if you have specific goals. Alternatively, we can provide group physiotherapy classes with a focus around fitness or upper limb therapy depending on your needs. We have several groups that run throughout the week from Monday through Friday.
We also run an after school group physiotherapy programme for children who have a neurological condition from ages 10 to 16.
Our qualified Physiotherapist, Shaunna Morissette is involved in assessing each person who uses the IRIS Rehabilitation Gym, whether it is for 1:1 or group therapy. We accept self referrals as well as referrals from GPs including Green Prescription.
