INJURY ASSESSMENT & DIAGNOSIS
Our Physiotherapists are trained in how to accurately and systematically diagnose injuries and sources of pain. It is important when getting injury diagnosed to be assessed by a qualified professional and not follow generalised health industry advice.
EXERCISE PRESCRIPTION & REHABILITATION PLANS
After an accurate diagnosis or athletic screening, we will prescribe a specific exercise program to help you rehabilitate your injury and improve your athletic performance
We offer both trigger point and facial dry needling techniques to provide short-term release in muscle tone and to promote blood flow to an injured area. These techniques are used in conjunction with an active rehabilitation plan.
HANDS ON TREATMENT
We use hands on treatments such as soft tissue release, joint mobilisation, myofascial release and assisted and PNF stretching in conjunction with an active rehabilitation plan.
