Rebecca graduated from Deakin University, Geelong in 2004 with a Bachelor of Nursing and undertook her Graduate training at Epworth Healthcare Richmond where she developed her advanced nursing skills primarily in Perioperative Nursing for 7 years following this.
Her passion to live on the land brought her back to her roots and returned to Echuca Regional Health where she studied and completed a double Master’s Degree, a Masters of Nursing (Perioperative) and the Masters of Nursing (Nurse Practitioner).
Nurse Practitioners are able to autonomously perform advanced physical assessments, order diagnostic tests, interpret the results of these tests, initiate referrals to relevant health care professionals and prescribe appropriate medications and other therapies as needed.
With in-house physiotherapists as well as a wide referral base for regional physiotherapists we aim to create a recovery pathway for you with ease of access from your local area in mind.
Physiotherapy manages a wide variety of musculoskeletal complaints and a number of conditions respond as well to non-surgical therapy as they do to surgical therapy. We reserve surgery for conditions that won’t respond adequately to non-surgical means and so physiotherapy often forms a big part of orthopaedic treatment.
Orthotics can be used to help manage foot and ankle conditions that require support or re-alignment, adjust a leg length discrepancy or offload a knee joint after collapse in part of the joint.
Specialist review for foot and ankle conditions can help determine if a corrective orthotic is required to adjust the position of the hindfoot or whether an offloading or accommodative orthotic will be most beneficial in relief of pressure or pain.
Occasionally a more intensive period of strengthening, stretching or balance training is required prior to re-engaging in community-based programs. This may be after surgery or after an acute injury.
If you require a period of inpatient rehabilitation, occupational therapy, equipment, sports physician review or other step-down services, our extended referral network has you covered.
