Treatment and prevention of all injuries using individualised programs and hands on treatment. Our physiotherapists are able to accurately diagnose and use evidence based practice to assist in the management of your pain and injury with the aim of restoring function.
Our physiotherapists are trained to use various techniques. For example:
- Joint mobilisation and manipulation
- Taping rigid, kinesio and/or rock tape
- Dry Needling
- Muscle stretching
Other modalities we may use include:
- Cryotherapy/Heat Therapy
- Compression therapy
- Electrical Stimulation
- Low Level Laser
Patients awaiting surgery are advised to see their physiotherapist prior, to prepare and help their bodies reach their optimal condition to accelerate recovery post op.
Patients are seen prior to their surgery to:
- discuss the role of physiotherapy postoperatively
- practice exercises that are to be performed after the surgery
- learn about equipment required after the operation
- optimise strength and range of movement
Our physiotherapists see many patients following various surgical procedures to assist in their recovery with the goal of returning to their full level of mobility and function. Common conditions seen post operatively include orthopaedic joint replacements, Spinal surgery, shoulder surgery, foot surgery and repair of tendons, ligaments and fractures.
Our physiotherapists can assess your balance and risk of falls. From this, a tailored individualised exercise program can be prescribed to help strengthen and improve balance to prevent falls. Mobility aids and equipment may be prescribed to ensure safe mobility.
A tailored treatment plan can assist in the management and improvement of chronic pain. This may begin with gentle passive and active range of movement exercises, stretches and desensitisation techniques.
Our physiotherapists are trained to recognise, assess and treat patients that are suffering from vertigo from a vestibular origin such as Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), vestibular neuronitis/labyrinthitis and following acoustic neuroma resection.
