To get you back to a stronger, pain-free life...

YOUR TREATMENT

At Physio K, we guarantee that you will be treated as a person first and a patient second. We take time to find the root cause of your problem, discuss what you hope to gain from your physiotherapy and work closely with you to prepare a carefully formulated treatment plan.

You will be guided through your physiotherapy treatment at our clinic, while creating a self-management practice where there will also be exercises you can perform at home to help you on the way to achieving your aims. Our physiotherapy team are experienced, approachable and dedicated to making your time with us a success.

At Physio K we offer a full suite of Physiotherapy treatments to treat pain and injury. As APHRA registered Physiotherapists we use only results-proven, evidence-based and up-to-date techniques including soft tissue massage, mobilisations, dry needling, taping and stretching.

MANUAL THERAPY

Manual therapy (MT) is the core focus of our treatment here at Physio K. MT is an advanced area within physiotherapy based on manual examination and specialised treatment techniques integrated with exercise, education and other modalities to address pain, loss of function and wellness. 

Manual therapy has been used since a long time within the profession of physiotherapy and physiotherapists have greatly contributed to the diversity in manual therapy techniques.

The International Federation of Orthopaedic Physical Therapists (IFOMPT) defines orthopaedic manual physical therapy as: "a specialised area of physiotherapy for the management of NMS conditions, based on clinical reasoning, using highly specific treatment approaches including manual techniques and therapeutic exercises. Orthopaedic Manual Therapy also encompasses, and is driven by, the available scientific and clinical evidence and the biopsychosocial framework of each individual patient."

Manual therapy is really a large umbrella which includes many specific hands-on techniques. Here’s a list of the most common ones we use at Physio K: 

 

  • Traction

  • Soft tissue work

  • Passive and active range of motion techniques

  • Joint mobilisations and translations

  • Trigger point therapy

  • Active release techniques

  • Myofascial release

  • Stretching

  • Neuromuscular release

  • Nerve sliders and tensioners

  • Joint manipulation / high velocity thrusts

  • Dry Needling

For Work, For Life, For Sport

 

To be able to assess your problems with our hands alone, without the assistance of imaging (soft tissue and joint restrictions are not typically visible in most imaging) takes a special ability to feel these differences in tissue consistency. This is both a gift and a combined motor and sensory skill that takes time and patience to master. 

Our patients come to us for a variety of reasons, and we take great pride in delivering the highest level of service in all circumstances.

For example, some people are looking to recover from an injury in order to return to work. We also care for people who are simply looking to develop a more active lifestyle. Our team will put together a physiotherapy plan that focuses on achievable goals, helping you develop a fitness routine that is sustainable in the long term.

We are able to apply this to athletes at all levels, from ‘weekend warriors’ to elite performers, ensuring you are in peak physical condition for your next challenge.

At Physio K, we do things quite differently.

We use a combination of the best hands-on, manual therapy techniques with specific exercises and education. This will not only reduce your pain, but it will also give your healthy movement patterns back. We will try to find the root cause of your problem and show you how to prevent future recurrence of injury after the treatment. 

It’s about personalised care… No two injuries or pain challenges are the same, so your care is completely individualised to your needs, following a full personal assessment.

It’s about maintaining good health… We always couple your care with guided specific exercises to help strengthen any weak or injured areas. These exercises are designed to alleviate symptoms while also helping to prevent the pain from recurring in the future.

It’s about simplicity… We will always be clear about what your problem is and clearly explain our proposed treatment plan.
