Physiotherapy involves the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal conditions (pain from / injury of muscle, bone, joint and connective tissue). So whether you have pain or injury from playing sport, working or doing every-day activities, our physiotherapy management can have an amazing impact on minimising the time it takes for you to recover and get back to what you love to do.
Our physiotherapists will undertake a comprehensive examination in order to provide you with a detailed assessment including diagnosis, cause, contributing factors and prognosis as well as a collaborative management plan to enable you to reach your goals.
Our physiotherapy management will depend upon the specifics of your problem, however as a general overview involves:
- Treatment techniques such as soft tissue massage / myofascial release, trigger point release, neuromuscular release, mobilisation, manipulation, dry needling and western acupuncture to resolve pain and restrictions and recover function.
- Taping techniques to promote activity adaption, reduce loading and promote healing.
- Advice regarding modifying or temporarily stopping activities to reduce loading and promote healing.
- Clinical exercise in the form of home exercise programs, hydrotherapy programs, studio programs and gym programs to recover normal function and address contributing factors.
- Structured plans for return to normal activity.
- Strategies to prevent injury, promote health and enhance performance.
