INJURY PAIN PHYSIO RECOVERY
We are passionate about our clients obtaining a successful functional outcome following sports injury/ traumatic injury/post surgical orthopaedic procedures, spinal dysfunction/issues and long standing muscle skeletal issues (muscle, joints and nerve irritation) and look forward to being given a chance to help our patients back up from injury and turn things around so that our patients recover back to their physical fitness.
We believe in addressing the root cause of our patients symptom and coming up with the right intervention to assist them back to their daily active lifestyle/activities of daily living. We would achieve this with an Initial assessment, forming a clinical impression of the presenting problem, a discussion of a treatment management program/ Plan of action and follow up treatment sessions which may include treatments tools such as Acupuncture, manual therapy, soft tissue technique and an appropriate management rehab program which we aim to progress to ensure that long term carry over between sessions with ourselves and for the future is achieved. We also aim to advise and educate our patients during the sessions and at discharge to promote these long term results.
