Inspiring People: Nicole - EBR Physio Bentleigh East

Nicole first came to EBR during the hard lockdown in Melbourne. Having suffered a stroke some time ago Nicole is no stranger to physiotherapy and rehabilitation. Nicole recently underwent ground-breaking reconstructive surgery to improve her ability to walk. When Nicole started her rehab journey at EBR she was in a boot, using a crutch and could only walk a short distance. Nicole has been attending physio twice a week, continuing her rehab at home and in two short months she has improved enormously and is now able to now walk 400 meters independently. We chatted to her recently to find out how she stays motivated with her rehab.

What brought you to EBR Physio?
Nicole: I was looking for a local physio for my post-surgical rehab.

How has EBR Physio got you back to being your best?
Nicole: Michael has kept me challenged with my rehab with constant goal setting. We have already exceeded expectations, it’s great to be able to look back and see how far I’ve come.

How do you stay motivated?
Nicole: For me being mobile and independent are my biggest motivations. I have a zest for life and want to get back to being independent so that I am able to enjoy every day.

How would you describe your overall rehab experience at EBR Physio?
Nicole: I really like the family atmosphere at EBR Physio, It feels less clinical, friendly and as a result, enjoyable to be there.
