PHYSIOTHERAPY

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy

Musculoskeletal physiotherapy is the assessment and treatment of your muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints or bones. If you have suffered an injury to any of these structures, your physiotherapist will employ advanced clinical assessment and diagnostic methods to find out about nature of the injury. Your physiotherapist will then discuss a treatment plan with you.

You don’t necessarily have to have a specific mechanism of injury to seek treatment, many musculoskeletal complaints arise without you even realising what you did. Regardless of this, our professionals can still assess your condition and work out a comprehensive management plan.

Neck Pain and Headaches

Did you sleep awkwardly last night? Is sitting at your desk giving you headaches? Quite often your neck can be the cause of headaches. This can make activities such as working, driving or simply turning your head very difficult.

Our therapists can provide postural advice and correction as well as soft tissue therapy and joint mobilization. Often if a headache is neck related it can be relieved in just one session.

Dry Needling

Many of our Physiotherapists are fully trained in the use of dry needling for relieving muscular aches and pains. Although the idea may sound frightening it is often quite effective for relaxing tight muscles and easing pressure on joints.
