Core Rehabilitation Services | Queen Elizabeth Health Centre

By: Qe Health  05-Apr-2012

QE Health’s intensive inpatient programmes are designed for patients who have not responded to regional pain management and rehabilitation programmes.

Most patients with arthritis and other chronic conditions are well managed in regional centres with outpatient medical treatment and education programmes. However, a small proportion of patients with arthritis and other chronic conditions still have difficulty managing their condition despite the best efforts of regional care services.

The patient struggles mentally and physically with the impact the chronic condition has on their life. Their loss in wellbeing is often associated with a loss of self confidence.

QE Health’s rehabilitation programme is unique in that it is created to work with these patients. Education is our focus. We provide an intensive inpatient programme of 1 - 3 weeks. Programme content depends on individual patient need but all programmes are aimed at helping the patient regain control and management of their lives.

We offer rehabilitation programmes for the following patients:

  • Newly diagnosed rheumatoid arthritis
  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Long standing inflammatory arthritis
  • Generalised Osteoarthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Medical rheumatology
  • Palliative Balneotherapy
  • Post polio rehabilitation
