Joint Mobilisation

This treatment works to relieve patients from pain or stiffness, through gentle and rhythmic movement of spinal or limb joints. We help patients who suffer from joint pain, stiffness and/or hypomobility by improving their range of motion, enabling their joints to move freely in directions that they were designed to.

Your physiotherapist will assess your mobility and devise a personalised treatment plan accordingly. We utilise modern technologies, treatments and techniques to give our patients the best chance of long-term recovery, so they can get back to doing whatever it is they love, free from pain!

Joint Manipulation

Related to joint mobilisation, joint manipulation involves stronger, localised end-thrust movement of joints. This treatment is commonly associated with a ‘click’ or ‘popping’ sound, and has been proven to relieve joint pain, increase range of motion, fasten recovery time from injury, and unlocking stiff joints.

Due to this extremely skilled technique, it is absolutely crucial that you use only a qualified physiotherapist. Our experienced physiotherapists only utilise this technique only in safe and certain situations.

Neural/Nerve Mobilisation

This treatment involves applying gentle and safe movement to nerves that are impeding on a patient’s movement.

Adverse neural tension can result in nerve pain and negatively affect one’s mobility. Nerve tissue needs to move freely and unimpeded along its pathway. These techniques involve simple movements of certain body parts involved that helps to regain the gliding / sliding of the nerve tissue along its pathway.

Massage

Our physiotherapists are experts in various massage techniques. Physiotherapy massages work to restore muscle movement, through breaking down adhesions and knots in the spine or limbs. Depending on your condition, your physiotherapist can recommend one of the following massage styles:

  • Soft Tissue Massage
  • Trigger Point Therapy
  • Myofascial Release Techniques
  • Dry Needling
  • Traditional Stretching Techniques

Ranging from gentle to very firm, physiotherapy massage provides great relief to patients suffering from many kinds of discomfort.

Strengthening

Strengthening exercises are used to increase the capacity of a specific group of muscles to perform correct body movements and unload forces on the associated joints. Overloading muscle groups via certain exercises increases its strength and muscle growth. Weak muscles increase the likelihood of injury to the associated tissues and joints they attach to. Conditioning muscles appropriately can also work to decrease energy expenditure as strengthened muscles work more efficiently and effectively.

Whether you have obtained a sporting injury, recently had surgery, or suffer from back or neck pain, strengthening is an imperative part of the recovery process.

Balance/Proprioception

Proprioception is about being able to recognise where certain parts of your body are in space, which can be more difficult to grasp than people realise. When you obtain an injury, your joints may feel unstable; even to the point where it seems they could ‘give out’ on you. Our proprioception and balance exercises are designed to restore control over your body in a subconscious state. Subconscious proprioception is crucial in everyday life, and even more so when playing sport i.e. kicking a football. Our physiotherapists will work with you to improve your balance using a tailored exercise plan.

Core Stability

Many people do not realise, but core strength and stability plays an imperative role in supporting, controlling and moving your lower spine and pelvis. Spines are incredibly unstable by nature – without muscular support, your spine would literally fall on top of itself. Suffering from back pain results in your major core stability muscles disengaging, which can lead to chronic pain and increase the risk of further injury.

Our physiotherapists will retrain your core to reactivate support to the spine using a tailored treatment and exercise plan. We will also advise you of steps you can take beyond treatment that will help to maintain core strength, and improve quality of life!

Stretching

Stretching is important both prior to completing exercise, and during rehabilitation after an injury. If you have suffered an injury, it is likely that your joint, muscle or connective tissue will heal in a shortened pattern, which can subsequently lead to loss of movement, sharp pains, and increase the potential of an injury reoccurring.

Passive and active stretching of muscles and connective tissue promotes flexibility, and can improve the range of motion of your joints. Our physiotherapists can help you integrate stretching into your exercise or recovery routine, as a means of improving performance and preventing future injury.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger Point Therapy is a form of remedial massage, where deep pressure is applied to release sensitive, shortened or adhered areas deep within a muscle or connective tissue (fascia). The common, non-medical term is a “muscle knot”. A muscle’s trigger point can be activated due to overuse, trauma, inflammation, infections, nerve pain, and electrolyte imbalances.

Our physiotherapists are skilled in isolating the location of pain caused by a trigger point, and implementing treatment accordingly.

Myofascial Release

This form of massage involves applying very slow and sustained pressure to the connective tissue and fascia, eventually allowing it to relax or release. Injury, overuse, inactivity, tension and reduced blood flow can all lead to soft tissues becoming restricted in the body. Common body parts that require this treatment include:

  • Upper back
  • Lower back
  • Buttock
  • Thigh

Dry needling Adelaide

Dry Needling

This technique is also referred to as Western Acupuncture. It is not Chinese Acupuncture as it is based upon more modern Western medicine’s anatomical and neuro-physiological principles and evidence. Both use very fine needle, however the placement of these needles differ. Dry Needling is another treatment option for deep tissue massage to relax tight muscle and nerve tissue. The needles are placed in the painful, muscular trigger points to produce a local reaction of increased blood flow and production of the body’s natural analgesics, called endorphins. The results often are reduced pain, improved muscle length and overall improved function.
