We provide high quality physical therapy services with innovative wellness programming. We believe in the intimate connection of body and mind, combined with a holistic approach to symptoms, health and prevention.
Manual therapy provides hands on treatment to the patient. Treatment may include moving a joint or body part in a specific direction to restore the mobility and function of this region. Manual therapy may also include stretching, passive movements and other soft tissue techniques such as massage and trigger point release to allow the injured part to restore its function.
Sports physiotherapy applies to all athletes of all levels and ages and abilities. We treat acute injuries to complicated problems that may require assessment of biomechanics and technique. During the treatment process we aim to educate people on their injuries for their recovery and hopefully prevention! Commonly we see children and adolescents for growth related pain that may also be aggravated by the sports they play. It is important that both the children and parents are aware how how best to manage their condition
Dry needling can be used to assist with the treatment of muscular pain and myofascial disruption. It is effective in settling muscle dysfunction that may be related to pain, injury, stress or overuse.
Post and Pre operative care
We work with patients who are preparing to have surgery and require strengthening and or education about their upcoming surgery. Some people may be trying to prevent or delay a particular surgery such as knee or hip replacement, shoulder surgery and a potential spinal surgery. With improvement in strength and mobility, some people are able to delay these big decisions until they are absolutely necessary.
For the post operative patient, we follow surgical protocols given by their specialist and help them to progress through their recovery. We are very knowledgeable and often have more time to spend answering questions about what to expect, pain they may experience and how to progress them so they may feel independent and in control of their rehabilitation.
Real Time Ultrasound Imaging
Real time ultrasound used in physiotherapy is used to help diagnose muscle weakness and instability or help as a visual tool in allowing people to learn to contract a muscle when they may otherwise not feel it working. As part of the assessment for Clinical Pilates, the physiotherapist will look at the strength, timing and coordination of your muscles while your contract them with specific movements.
Balance and Vestibular treatment
Balance exercises and retraining proprioception are important at all ages, whether it be from an injured joint recovering (including back pain) or regaining strength and confidence after a fall. Specific exercises aim to teach your body to control your movements so they again become part of your subconscious state, this is important for every day life and particularly in sport.
