What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy can help to reduce and manage your pain anywhere from the onset of pain to the chronic stages. Physiotherapy can treat a broard spectrum of  conditions and also aid in preventing injuries by screening for bio-mechanical dysfunctions. This is advantageous whether you are looking to be free of pain in your day to day life, a weekend warrior or a high performance athlete experiencing recurring injuries. Screening allows us to rapidly locate where joints are inadequately mobile and areas of instability that may contribute to your discomfort and poor movement patterns.

Utilising an evidence based practice with a combination of hands on treatment, postural education and a specific exercise programme tailored for you contributes to improved pain free function and performance

What to expect

A session can entail a comprehensive screening to assess the source of your discomfort or dysfunction and a treatment tailored to these specific findings. Treatment can consist of Deep tissue massage, Dry Needling, Taping and a tailored exercise programme to suit your needs. 


What is Pilates?

Pilates is a means of working on your strength and flexibility. We all struggle with aches, pains and niggles  and this tailored exercise regime works on lengthening tight tissue and strengthening areas that become weak time and time again. This creates balance within our bodies. This Balance ultimately contributes to improved Range of motion, ease of movement and less pain on activity. Pilates is marvelous for those of you who have have had recurring injuries, if your job requires you to sit at a desk, those of you who experience stiffness in your neck or back and would like to improve your posture overall.
