What treatments do Physiotherapists use?
Physiotherapists are trained to assess your condition, diagnose the problem and help you understand what needs attention. We work with you to plan your treatment and home program. Some of the common treatments we use include:
* exercise programs to improve strength and mobility, co-ordination and balance
* joint manipulation and mobilisation to reduce pain and stiffness
* massage and gentle stretching to release over-active or tight muscles
* muscle re-education to balance your joints and create optimum biomechanics
* chest physiotherapy to clear your lungs and breathing exercise to improve breathing patterns
* acupuncture/ dry needling for pain relief
* hydrotherapy for strength training
* assist with treatment aids such as splints, braces, crutches, walking sticks and taping
Sport is an important part in our Australian lifestyle. At times, injuries occur and in most cases these can be effectively treated, managed and often prevented by your physiotherapist. Physiotherapy management can help you return to your sport safely and more quickly than just "rest and see what happens". Specific exercises are often needed to regain flexibility, strength, balance and co-ordination. For an effective assessment please call the Mundaring Physiotherapy Clinic on 9295 6622 for an appointment or book online.
Physiotherapists have expert training in the diagnosis and management of muscle, joint and nerve dysfunction. Our assessment targets joint stiffness or hypermobility, muscle weakness, over activity or imbalances and nerve sensitivity. Pain and poor mobility can be resolved by correct diagnosis and treatment which may include massage, joint manipulation and gentle mobilizing, corrective exercises, and postural education to support the spine and other joints. Your home program will be designed to maintain and build on your improvement in the clinic. Knowing what to do to help yourself recover can make all the difference.
Post Surgical Physiotherapy
Our Physiotherapists at the Mundaring Physiotherapy Clinic 9295 6622 provide exercises and therapies that manage pain, regain strength and movement to optimize your surgical outcome. This may include hydrotherapy and the specific post surgical requirements from your surgeon. Physiotherapy can help you move well after hip replacement, knee replacement and ankle replacements. Shoulder reconstructions and spinal surgery benefit from muscle rehabilitation to have you moving well.
Acupuncture Therapy/ Dry Needling
Acupuncture is a safe and simple therapy which is effective at relieving pain in muscle and joint conditions. Physiotherapists may use dry needling in conjunction with exercises, manual therapies and other modalities to restore pain free movement. Dry needling uses very fine pins to release activated trigger points within the muscle. These trigger points may be referring your pain. We also use massage, heat and gentle stretches together with strengthening exercises to regain a healthy muscle.
Physiotherapists are experts in the prescription of appropriate hydrotherapy programs to regain strength, mobility, balance and aerobic fitness. This is particularly helpful following joint replacement surgery (hip, knee and shoulder), sports injuries, spinal pain and arthritic conditions. The physiotherapists at the Mundaring Physiotherapy Clinic 9295 6622 are trained in prescribing personalised hydrotherapy programs for you. Sarah Lawrence is also an exercise physiologist as well as an experienced physiotherapist and has a particular passion for hydrotherapy.
