Physiotherapy supports people with physical and non-physical disability to participate in physical activities they’re interested in. It helps to stay healthy, be more connected in the community, and improve their independence.

Physiotherapists often work alongside other professionals including occupational therapists and speech pathologists to provide support that meets your needs or those of your family members.

Who can benefit from physiotherapy?

Our physiotherapists support children and adults with physical conditions like Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis or with lifelong injuries such as Spinal Cord Injury or Acquired Brain Injury. People who have activity restrictions caused by non-physical conditions such as intellectual disability or Autism can also benefit from physiotherapy.

What does a physiotherapist do?

The possibilities are endless, but we always start with the person and their goals. Once we have a goal, our therapists will come to where the person is. For some that may be their home, workplace, school, gym or any place they spend time to see how they interact with their environment.

If their goal is to join a local sports club or enter the workforce, our assessment helps us understand where they are now, and what barriers they are facing in achieving those outcomes. This helps us create a tailored therapy plan to achieve those outcomes, and often focusses on building opportunities for them to practice newly developed skills within their everyday routine.

Meet Jadyen

Jayden is a young boy who was born with Cerebral Palsy, which makes it difficult for him to move around by himself and do things other children his age can do. Jayden is supported by an Everyday Independence Physiotherapist

With a little bit of extra help Jayden was able to enjoy a horse-riding session along with the other children at his day care. You can watch the video here. He also wanted to learn to ride a bike. By supporting him to build his strength and skills Jayden’s physiotherapist was able to order a customised trike that was perfect for his needs.

Meet Lewis

Lewis is young man living with Cerebral Palsy who has been supported by an Everyday Independence physiotherapist since he was in prep. Lewis and his family have recently moved to the Gold Coast from Victoria, but thanks to our Everyday Independence team, he’s been able to keep his supports consistent and doesn’t have to start all over again.

Lewis receives support from his Physiotherapist in Victoria via telehealth which will continue until he gets settled. He’s pictured here with his dog Melody, who is having a ride in his wheelchair.
