What do Allied Health Assistants do?

Allied Health Assistants primarily provide face-to-face therapy for individual clients by working closely with Allied Health clinicians. Clinicians work with each client to achieve their goals and may choose to implement an Allied Health Assistant program as part of their therapy plan. This may be for a number of reasons and is determined by the clinician on a case-to-case basis.

The most common examples of what an Allied Health Assistant may be involved with include:

PHYSIOTHERAPY

  • Providing face-to-face supervision and/or guidance of an at-home exercise program which may target strengthening cardiovascular endurance balance or flexibility.
  • Implement a hydrotherapy program designed by one of our Physiotherapists in a local hydrotherapy pool.
  • Providing a specialist paediatric physiotherapy program designed by one of our paediatric physiotherapists.
  • Delivering programs which may include elements of relaxation techniques massage and stretching.
