Community Involvement

At Movement For Life Physiotherapy we are committed to giving back and supporting the community that supports us. Each year our team of physiotherapists identifies a number of organizations that they would like to support.

Key to our strategy is that we do not offer financial support or monetary donations, but that we can donate time.

We have previously volunteered time to organizations for:

•  Injury prevention education sessions for members or clients
•  Basic Manual Handling advice for staff
•  Once off assessments of staff or residents/clients
•  Once off exercise sessions for members or staff
•  Pre-employment screenings
•  A “come and try” hydrotherapy or clinical pilates session
•  Fund raising events and morning teas

What motivates us and makes us want to volunteer our time?

Community InvolvementEvery day we rely on movement to perform necessary activities associated with living – from getting out of bed and dressing, to preparing a meal and conversing with people.

Physiotherapy is a well established and accepted form of healthcare that assists people with problems that cause pain, limit movement and affect normal daily activities. These problems may have been present since birth, have developed through lifestyle, been acquired through an accident or be the result of a life-changing event such as a stroke.

Physiotherapists can help solve and avoid many of the painful problems that a person may encounter throughout life. Whether you’re young or old, active or taking it easy, there’s a good chance you or someone you know will benefit from physiotherapy at some point.

movement_for_life_physio_wheelchair_athleteWe know that Physiotherapists don’t just offer treatment - their advice can help prevent problems from returning or even from happening in the first place.

If you feel we could be of any benefit to your organization by volunteering a small amount of our time, we would love to hear from you. We welcome your ideas and if we can accommodate them we will do so.
