Services

We can help ease the suffering caused by a range of muscular, joint and tissue injuries.

Our services include:

Hands-on manual therapy and manipulative techniques
Physios are highly qualified when it comes to guiding your body’s recovery. Hands-on manual therapy is the foundation in assessing and treating your injury and is the primary technique used by physiotherapists. The treatment involves the manipulation of your joints, muscles and tissues to diagnose biomechanical injuries, reduce pain and promote healing.

Assessment and treatment of sporting injuries
Our primary goal is to rehabilitate our patients as quickly as possible, by offering effective treatment plans and solutions, to restore your mobility, strengthen your fitness and prevent future injuries.

Headache treatment
Tension headaches and migraines can be caused by muscle tightness or neck related issues.
Such headaches can often benefit from physiotherapy through effective manual therapy techniques.

Rehabilitation
Our rehabilitation services assist patients to recover after an injury, accident or post-surgery. Rehab should commence as soon as possible, to ensure the best possible outcome. Our customised treatment plans aim to accelerate recovery and improve your strength and mobility.

Motor Vehicle Accident injuries
Our treatment of motor vehicle accident injuries, focuses on pain management, mobility, motor control and strengthening techniques to accelerate rehabilitation. Typically, motor vehicle accident injuries take time to recover from, so a comprehensive treatment plan, and early intervention is required for the most successful results.

Workplace injury – ReturnToWorkSA
We can assess workplace injuries, liaising with ReturnToWorkSA to provide effective return to work and injury management plans.

Occupational physiotherapy
These services include pre-employment assessments, workplace and ergonomic assessments and graduated return-to-work plans.

Advanced dry needling
A form of western acupuncture, dry needling is a proven evidence-based treatment for muscle tension and pain. This technique can be used in the treatment of acute and chronic back pain, chronic neck pain, tension and migraine headaches, pelvic girdle pain, knee osteoarthritis, lateral elbow pain and shoulder conditions.

Exercise prescription
Exercise prescription plays an important role in improving the performance and functioning of the body area under rehabilitation.
The exercises that are prescribed include active motion, strengthening, stretching, balancing, and conditioning exercises.
A personalised program is highly beneficial, as it addresses your individual needs, leading to recovery and a healthier lifestyle.

Postural assessment and correction
We offer postural assessment for the ongoing treatment and correction of spinal injury, neck pain and back pain. These individual corrections, however minute, will provide lasting results, elevating pressure on weak muscles and joints.

Achieve your sporting goals
We can assist you in achieving your sporting goals. You don’t have to be an elite athlete to enjoy the benefits of our personal monitoring and goal driven training. We assist many individuals who are preparing for major public sporting events such as the Adelaide City to Bay. We can assist you with your preparation by providing a personalised training plan, motivation, post event recovery and preparation for your next sporting goal.

 

Injuries

We offer specialised treatment for all muscular, joint and tissue injuries, including:

Knee pain
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.

Shoulder Bursitis
This 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 clinic. Our treatment may include manual therapy, massage, core strength and exercise prescription.

Tennis elbow
Despite its 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 physio can treat tennis elbow with a range of methods, depending on the acuteness of pain and mobility at time of assessment.

Sciatica
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. We can reduce nerve pressure caused by poorly moving spinal joints as well as easing muscular tension. Our physio has received specialised training in exercises and techniques aimed at improving neural mobility and reducing sensitivity.

Hamstring strain
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 without proper rehabilitation.

Bursitis
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. We assess the site, pain levels, and inflammation to develop a comprehensive treatment plan.

Headaches
Tension headaches and migraines can be caused by muscle tightness or neck related issues. These types of headaches can achieve positive results through effective physiotherapy.

Pinched nerve
A pinched nerve or nerve damage can occur anywhere in the body, and can be extremely painful. We treat the source of the nerve compression with soft-tissue and joint mobilisation, exercises and techniques aimed at improving neural mobility and reducing sensitivity.

Calf strain
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.

Hip pain
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 pain, to re-establish mobility.

Neck pain
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. Treatment includes manual therapy, mobilisation, manipulation, dry needling, massage, exercise prescription and posture correction.
