Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation

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
  • Massage
  • Taping rigid, kinesio and/or rock tape
  • Dry Needling
  • Muscle stretching

Other modalities we may use include:

  • Cryotherapy/Heat Therapy
  • Compression therapy
  • Ultrasound
  • Electrical Stimulation
  • TENS
  • Low Level Laser

Pre-operative Assessments

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

Post-surgical Rehabilitation

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.


Falls Prevention

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.

Exercise Classes

 

Pain Management
