Rehabilitation At Manly Waters Private

The program aims:

Reconditioning is a process that aims to maximise your recovery and restoration of independence after illness or injury. This includes improving cardiovascular fitness, increasing endurance, improving general muscle strength and flexibility as well as improved self esteem and overall quality of life. Reconditioning is suitable for those who have been: Unwell, had any debilitating injury, have recently been bedridden, experienced reduced exercise capacity, limited in activities of daily living, or who are experiencing generalised weakness.

Who can benefit from this program?

  • Post-surgery: Following surgery, general reconditioning can help regain strength, improve flexibility, and restore mobility, facilitating a smoother recovery process.
  • Post-injury: Whether recovering from a sports injury, a fall, or any other physical trauma, general reconditioning can address muscle weakness, pain, and limitations in movement, promoting healing and a return to normal activities.
  • Hospitalisation: After a prolonged stay in the hospital, general reconditioning can help rebuild physical strength and endurance
  • De-conditioned individuals: For those who have been inactive for an extended period, general reconditioning offers a gradual and safe way to rebuild physical fitness, improve strength, and boost energy levels.
  • Older adults: Maintaining physical activity is essential for healthy aging, and general reconditioning programs can help older adults improve balance, strength, and flexibility, reducing the risk of falls and promoting independent living.
  • Individuals with sedentary lifestyles: If your job or daily routine involves minimal physical activity, general reconditioning can help counteract the negative effects of a sedentary lifestyle, reducing the risk of chronic health problems and improving overall well-being.

A Personalised Plan:

The program begins with a comprehensive assessment by our Rehabilitation Specialist, who then works with our allied health team to craft an individualised rehabilitation plan that addresses your specific goals and concerns. Our rehab consultant will then check in on you regularly to assess and measure your progress.

  • Exercise and Education: Our program includes personalised exercise therapy in our large open plan gym and hydrotherapy pool for MCH.
  • Expert, Multidisciplinary Team: Our program is led by rehab consultants, cardiac nurses and allied health professionals including physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, occupational therapists and dietitians. We also have a social worker or discharge planner who helps to facilitate a smooth transition out of our care.
  • A Holistic Approach: We employ a holistic approach to your well-being, providing guidance around nutrition, medication and exercise.

This also ensures that you are closely monitored and changes in your condition are addressed immediately.

We provide medical inpatient services to patients who:

  • Are unable to cope at home or have no one to care for them after hospitalisation, after a bout of illness, a fall or fracture or those unsteady on their feet
  • Are suffering a chronic illness and are in need of acute hospital care
  • Are in need of continuing IV antibiotics or wound care such as VAC dressings
  • Are not ready for rehabilitation, for example, those who are non-weight bearing or slow to heal

The length of your stay will be dependent on your progress and your specific needs as assessed fortnightly by our rehabilitation physicians and allied health professionals.
