On initial consultation you will have a through physiotherapy assessment to help identify your current complaint. Your Physiotherapist will then identify available treatment options and prescribe a personalised treatment program based on your present complaint, goals and preference.

Your treatment could consist of:

  • Mobilisations and Manipulations: These treatments vary in terms of the force required and the patient's preference. These range from very gentle joint and soft tissue movements and stretching to manipulation. It is always preferable to use as gentle a treatment as possible to treat a soft tissue or joint problem.

  • Acupuncture: Acupuncture is a safe and gentle form of treatment which aims to restore balance to the body and manage pain.  It is an alternative to those trying to avoid medication.  It works using the body's own naturally produced hormones with little or no side effects.

  • Electrotherapeutic Modalities:

    •  Ultrasound: Uses high frequency sound waves to treat injuries to muscles, tendons, ligaments and other soft tissues. This can provide pain relief and accelerates the healing process by stimulating circulation and cellular activity
    • TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is used to relieve pain by inhibiting the passage of pain signals to the brain. The units are 'pocket size' and portable and so can be worn by patients during daily activity. This can usually reduce or eliminate the need for pain medication.

·         Pilates: Clinical Pilates is a unique approach used by Physiotherapists for training mind-body awareness; developing strength and precision of movement whilst retraining proprioceptive mechanisms for the purpose of encouraging good posture and more efficient movement patterns.

 

·         Remedial Massage: Ideal for relaxation and removal of muscular tension. Deep muscular massage can improve circulation and aid elimination of lactic acid build up accumulated through repetitive muscular work.

 

·         Prescriptive Exercises: Exercises that are tailored to your individual rehab needs. They are generally used to supplement the effects of other treatments being used. Exercises may be designed to strengthen muscles, mobilize joint, stretch tight tissues, increase stamina and fitness and improve balance and co-ordination.

 

·         Supports, Splints and Tapping: Used in conjunction with other physiotherapy techniques to provide stabilization and facilitate correct muscle recruitment.
