Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy incorporates an in-depth assessment and diagnosis, followed by a wide range of techniques and treatments designed to reduce or eliminate pain in the muscles, bones, joints or soft tissue areas of the body, whether caused by injury or degeneration.

A multi-dimensional physio treatment plan is created to ensure the body is not only rehabilitated in the safest possible way, but also to prevent re-occurrence through stretching, stabilising and strengthening the affected area.

Physiotherapy treatment plans can include the following techniques:

  • Manipulation/mobilisation techniques
  • Deep transverse frictional massage
  • Muscle energy techniques
  • Ultrasonic therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Massage
  • Pilates
  • Heat therapy
  • Cold therapy
  • Gym rehabilitation
  • Specific taping techniques
  • Mechanical traction
