In addition to the treatment of neck and back pain, sports injuries, musculoskeletal pain and arthritic pain, we provide a range of physiotherapy services geared towards specific conditions which include:

Group exercise classes– With a focus on core retraining, strength and flexibility, this is a great option for people who have recently had surgery or are recovering from an injury.  It is also suitable for postnatal women and those with pelvic floor problems and prolapse.  Our exercise classes are run by an experienced physiotherapist who has been working  in the area of biomechanics and core retraining for 20 years.    To find out more about the classes we offer click on the link above or call Karen on 0423033665. For enrolment details or to book online, follow these links 

Chronic Pain Management – Chronic pain is characterised by pain that persists despite adequate time for healing and is often defined as persistent pain lasting longer than 12 weeks. It requires a different approach to treatment of acute injury and is a highly specialised area often requiring liaison between many different health care providers. Our physiotherapists have been working in this area for more than 15 years and will provide a thorough assessment which will assist them in formulating a specific plan for chronic pain management.

Post-surgical Rehabilitation – With on site ultrasound imaging available for analysis of tendon, muscle, ligament and other soft tissue structures, we can provide tailored post surgical rehabilitation to get you back to top form as quickly as possible. We offer rehabilitation following ACL repair, complicated knee arthroscopy, shoulder surgery, joint replacement, prostatectomy, mastectomy, sling repair and a number of other surgical interventions.

Pre-pointe assessment and biomechanical analysis – Declan Coburn has worked with dancers for many years and as an ex-competitive gymnast himself understands the pressures of the industry – both physically and psychologically. He knows exactly how important it is to get the biomechanics and technique absolutely right before a dancer goes en pointe so that injuries to hips, knees and feet can be prevented in the future. He provides a 1 hour in depth assessment and liaises with teachers to ensure the best result possible.  He is happy to discuss individual needs over the phone or to book an appointment now book online here
