Rehabilitation is a process that aims to maximise your recovery and restoration of independence after illness. At MacRehab, we provide both inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation for our Metabolic Rehabilitation patients. We are a one-stop-shop for rehabilitation services.
Metabolic Rehab helps patients lose weight and improve their fitness levels in order to reverse or minimise patients’ diabetes. It also encourages weight bearing exercise to help bone strength and minimise the effects of osteoporosis.
Conditions suitable for Metabolic Rehab include:
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome
Our team works closely under the direction of the Rehabilitation Specialist (a Fellow of the Australian Facility of Rehabilitation Medicine or equivalent), in collaboration with you, your GP or Endocrinologist to achieve a holistic assessment and integrated treatment regime dedicated to minimising the effect of disability. Our multi-disciplinary team works with our patients to help them regain independence and resume their day to day life.
Metabolic Rehabilitation is provided by the physiotherapists and/ or exercise physiologists on an individual basis and within small group physiotherapy gym sessions and may also include hydrotherapy sessions. Occupational Therapy and Dietician sessions are also available.
