We’ve been delivering quality health care to the Bassendean area and the surrounding suburbs for years. Our approach is simple.
We believe that health is among our most valuable possessions. And while we generally meet people after they’ve lost their health, our commitment is two-fold; Relief Care and Wellness Care.
Depending on your presentation, your past history, age, condition and most importantly your preference and needs, we have variety of services available to you to choose from:
- Exercise Physiology
- Massage therapy
- Occupational Therapy
- Post Surgery Rehabilitation
- Sport Injury Management
Majority of the times when people present at our practice and seek care, there is only one thing in their mind: relief. So that’s where we start! During this initial stage of care, we tend to approach the complaint(s) from different angles:
- We explain to patients what the potential underlying causes of the their presenting health problem were
- establish a care plan to produce the fastest results possible
- suggest ways that patients can participate in their care plan and recovery
- we explain the value of post-symptomatic wellness care and encourage patients to participate in such approach if they feel it is suited to them
We feel our patients need to appreciate that true health is actually a process and not an event. What most patients are used to and have adapted in their day to day life is what we call “sickness care” model and not the “wellness care” model. That is we wait, until symptoms appear and we lose our optimum health, to consider receiving care. This differs greatly with wellness care, in which you look after your health, maintain your wellbeing and treasure it by looking after your self on a continual basis. This can be in different forms, such as exercise, good diet, relaxation and meditation and finally receiving care. Our desire is to see our practice members abandon the prevailing sickness care model of health (waiting for symptoms and then taking action), in favour of the emerging wellness model.
An example is how you are supposed to look after your car. Regardless of how good your car is running and how good your engine is working, you are supposed to service your car to maintain that functionality. You are never supposed to run the car to the ground and wait until the engine breaks down to go and then get a service!!
Its your body, its your health, you’re the boss!
Regardless of your health goals and which approach you may choose, please understand that we are always at your service. You are always welcome at our practice no matter which approach you choose. You’re the boss! It’s your body, your health and your future. Our job is to offer you and advise you on the finest and best possible health care possible and it’s up to you to decide about it.
