Physiotherapy involves the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of human movement, with special emphasis on the musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiovascular systems.

The AWH Physiotherapy team provides inpatient and outpatient care and services for a range of disorders, including arthritis, pain, orthopaedic, musculoskeletal, neurological and respiratory conditions. We also provide services within the subacute, acute, surgical, critical care and women’s and children’s directorates.

The Department strives to provide quality, evidence based therapies to assist people to overcome limitations caused by injury, illness or the effects of aging.
