Out-patient / Individual Physiotherapy
Patients may book an appointment with a physiotherapist working in the practice, either referred by a medical doctor or directly with the practice. The injury needing treatment is assessed by taking a comprehensive history and establishing the diagnosis with selected tests. Based on the outcomes of this, a treatment plan is designed and is structured to suit the patient’s specific needs.
Conditions treated in the practice are broadly described as follows:
Muscle tears, muscle tendinosis or tendinitis, strains due to trauma or overuse.
Fractures, sprains or overuse injuries of various joints as the shoulders, knees, ankles, patella-femoral, etc.
Symptoms from the jaw such as clicking, locking and chewing difficulties, often associated with ear- and headaches.
Neural irritation or compression, and conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome and nerve pain from the neck.
Neck, mid or lower back symptoms with varied related discogenic, joint, sciatica conditions, etc.
Includes surgeries spinal (discectomies, fusions, etc), shoulders (acromioplasties, rotator cuff repair, etc), hips (labral repairs, etc), knees (ACL reconstruction, meniscal repair, etc), ankles (achilles reconstruction, internal fixation, post fractures) and after joint replacements.
Dizziness, vertigo, reduced balance, and treatment of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy co-ordinates the information from the inner ear balance organs, vision, neck and feet proprioceptive systems to improve the postural control system.
Increased sensitivity of the neural system, fibromyalgia and persisting pain that limits daily function.
Includes chest infections, bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma and COPD.
Muscular imbalances occur when a muscle becomes stronger or weaker than its opposing muscle, or the alignment of a joint or a limb changes. Examples include patellofemoral pain, or a change in the alignment of the pelvis results in lower back or lower limb (hip, knee, ankle) symptoms.
Improving work postures and positions to reduce strain on joints such as neck and back, and muscles in the body.
Technique selection is tailored to address an individual patient’s symptoms such as weakness, pain or loss of function. Hands-on therapy, exercises, dry needling, electrotherapy, and taping to support structures are considered. Stages of healing determine which technique is suitable and the dosage thereof.
Oscillatory technique of the spine or peripheral joints to improve pain-free movement.
Tailored for a specific goal after surgery or an injury.
Reduces spams and restores flexibility.
Includes use of a NeuroTrac E-stim.
Supports muscles or joints when they need extra support.
Reduces pain and problems in the soft tissue using a thin sterile needle.
The neurophysiology of pain, shown to reduce fear avoidance behaviours and encourages willingness and the ability to move.
