At the Physiotherapy, Pilates & Health Centre we aim to provide you with the best quality Physiotherapy management of your injury or condition. Here in Physiotherapy in South Melbourne we will spend focussed one-on-one time with you to gain a thorough understanding of your problem, expectations and goals. Physiotherapy management of your condition generally involves:
- The assessment and analysis of your joint pain or problem by observing your physical state and movement patterns. This may also include specific joint and muscle tests to identify the type and severity of your injury or problem. A diagnosis of your problem will be made at the completion of your first session with identification of possible factors that may have contributed to your injury. We are experienced at analysing the big picture which is important for prevention of your injury recurring.
Development of a treatment program that is specific to your individual needs. Generally this program involves: hands on treatments such as joint mobilisations and soft tissue release; rehabilitation exercises if necessary, education and activity modification.
The continual evaluation of your joint pain or condition and progress through the treatment plan. It is important to us that you are improving, therefore we closely monitor your program and modify treatment if necessary. Sometimes referral to other health professionals or scans may be required depending on your condition.
The cessation of treatment once your goals are met and you have returned to full function with strategies in place to prevent further injury.
