Our Physiotherapists use an evidence-based combination of hands-on therapy, exercise and education guided by a comprehensive assessment. We aim to help you regain control over your pain and prevent re-injury.
Hands on Physiotherapy
Manual therapy is well supported in the research to provide faster recovery times in clients with acute injuries. While prevention is better than a short-term cure, we always aim to send you out feeling better than you came in. Our Physios can choose from manual therapy techniques including; deep soft tissue release, trigger point release, joint and nerve mobilisation, stretching, traction, relaxation techniques and joint manipulation. We are guided by our comprehensive assessment and incorporate these techniques in a wider preventative approach with exercise therapy and self-management techniques. We aim to give you the skills and strategies to be as independent as possible.
Individual/Group Exercise Therapy
Our group exercise classes incorporate a wide range of exercises in a fun but focused environment that aim to improve balance, flexibility, strength and body awareness. The exercise classes are provided by our Physiotherapists and can be claimed through your Private Health Fund for a rebate. There is a strong evidence base supporting the use of individualised exercise programs in the rehabilitation and prevention of many different injuries including back and neck pain. Our Physios perform an initial assessment to understand your injury, the contributing factors and your specific goals. We then design a tailored program for you and progress it as appropriate. The hour long classes have a maximum of 5-6 participants which allows us to carefully supervise your technique, progress the exercises and maximise their effectiveness. The classes are suitable for the beginner and can challenge even the elite athlete. We incorporate a wide range of floor exercises, Pilates reformer and trapeze table exercises and functional exercises to meet the demands of your work and sport.
