We offer specialised treatment for all muscular, joint and tissue injuries, including:
Knee pain is the most common complaint amongst runners. It can also be caused by a range of other activities. Accurate diagnosis can identify the source of pain and the causative mechanisms. Our treatment may include joint/soft-tissue mobilisation, dry needling and a focus on corrective exercises. You can also continue to train using our exclusive anti-gravity AlterG treadmill.
This often-painful condition is often the result of over-use or acute injury or damage to the shoulder joint and surrounding soft tissues. It is characterised by a dull pain that becomes sharper with specific movement. If treated quickly and with proper diagnosis, most patients can find pain relief quickly. Left untreated, a Frozen Shoulder may develop, reducing movement substantially.
Lower back pain
Lower back pain is a condition we treat regularly at our Adelaide-based physiotherapy clinic. Our treatment may include massage, core strength and exercise prescription.
Despite it’s name, this injury is not limited to sporting activities. Sufferers of tennis elbow feel pain when performing gripping tasks or extending their fingers or wrists, particularly with mouse/keyboard work. Our experienced Adelaide physiotherapy staff can treat tennis elbow with a range of methods, depending on the acuteness of pain and mobility at time of assessment.
Sciatica is a common injury caused by pressure on the sciatica nerve. Pain is often felt from the lower back through to the back of the knee. Tom and the Adelaide physiotherapy team can reduce nerve pressure caused by poorly moving spinal joints as well as easing muscular tension. Tom has received specialised training in exercises and techniques aimed at improving neural mobility and reducing sensitivity.
We have extensive experience in the assessment and treatment hamstring injuries, which are often the result of sporting activities. There are three grades of hamstring strains ranging from a mild pull through to a complete muscle tear. We have a long-term view with treatment, as hamstring strains can recur in athletes without proper rehabilitation.
Bursitis is the inflammation of one or more bursae (sacs) of synovial fluid. There are many locations in the body that this inflammation can occur including knee, elbow, shoulder and hip. Performance Physiotherapy assess the site, pain levels, inflammation to develop a comprehensive treatment plan.
Neck related headaches can often benefit from Physiotherapy by treating the source of the pain. Our experienced staff can treat pain around in the head, in or around the eyes or ears and towards the back of the head, with neck shoulder and back manipulation and manual therapies.
A pinched nerve or nerve damage can occur anywhere in the body, and can be extremely painful. Tom and the Adelaide physiotherapy team will assess the pain and provide a diagnosis, treating the source of the nerve compression with soft-tissue / joint mobilisation and exercises and techniques aimed at improving neural mobility and reducing sensitivity.
Often the result of sporting activities or injury, calf strain can be felt through the lower leg and behind the knee. Treatment aimed at improving recovery and rehabilitation is important, as there is a high chance of recurrence with this injury.
As the body’s largest ball-and-socket joint, the hip joint is lined with cartilage and connective tissue and muscles, with pain commonly felt in the groin. Identifying and isolating the source of hip pain is the first step in treating the range of hip pain, to re-establish mobility. Our Adelaide physiotherapists will explain your injury and treatment plan after assessment.
Neck pain can result from pinched nerves, stiff joints, tight / stiff muscles, wry neck or poor posture. It can be debilitating for sufferers, affecting concentration and quality of life.
