Spinal & Pelvic Issues
Pre & Post Op Rehabilitation
Dealing with school age kids who are suffering with pain while trying to manage a load of 3 or 4 different sports is a challenge we enjoy. We understand the many demands of training and competition as well as the stress of a growing body. It is important to get the full picture with this age group and to completely understand the cause of their symptoms. This can mean addressing more than just one area and often involves delicately managing the load of sports scheduling as well as the symptoms. We work to maintain activities and sports wherever possible, whilst paying close attention to the needs of the growing body.
Adolescent Growth & Sports Injuries
Osteoarthritis affects so many of our patients, but often in different ways. During your treatment, you should expect to set personalised goals to ensure the management plan suits your individual needs. The dominant focus for all arthritis management is exercise and will involve a prescription of appropriate home exercises as well as supervised activities during your session.
If arthritis is stopping you from enjoying your regular activities, give us a call today and come in for an assessment.
We place great emphasis on injury prevention whether you are a junior soccer player, state netballer, elite swimmer or returning from injury. For this reason, we are dedicated to providing both individuals and teams with in depth sports screenings. This can be pre-season or throughout competition. It involves coming into the clinic for a general and sports specific assessment across all relevant areas for your sport. You will then receive an individualised rehabilitation program to address any underlying imbalances or prevent high risk injuries.
We have experience across a range of sports, but take great care prior to your appointment in getting to know the specific requirements of your sport and common injuries with which it is associated. To book a screening, please give us a call today.
As physiotherapists, we are often asked to explain how our classes differ from other types of exercise. It’s a difficult question to answer because the benefits are so widespread and can be different for everyone. However in short, group physiotherapy classes are based around postural awareness, alignment, core strength and breathing. You will also find the classes incorporate flexibility, balance and general muscle tone. There is an emphasis on mastering the technique of each exercise to build strength and control across the body.
