For a hospital that specializes in Orthopedic and Spinal Surgery, a state-of-the-art physiotherapy service is essential to compliment the management of our patients. That has been the driving force behind the establishment of our physiotherapy department at Bougainvillea Clinic, in Road Town, Tortola. Stefanie Luxton, our physiotherapist, was trained in both Physiotherapy and in Exercise science at Griffith University, Queensland, Australia. Between 2004-2010 she worked in both hospital and community physiotherapy services in Brisbane and latterly held the position of Rehabilitation Consultant with the Australia Post, before relocating to BVI.
As soon as you walk into the department you will be immediately impressed by the pleasant ambiance of the facility. The Gym is well equipped with a wide range of modern equipment and ample room to help our patients onto the road to recovering muscular strength, improved range of joint movement, essential for recovery of function of both upper and lower limb.
At Bougainvillea Clinics Physiotherapy unit, our patients’ treatment does not merely consist of a series of treatment sessions in the unit, but you will receive a customized set of instructions regarding the exercises to be continued at home.
These instructions are either printed for those who prefer or given via our internet based computer software so that they can be accurately followed at home, thus maximizing the benefits received from attending our department.
