Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Program
The goal of musculoskeletal physiotherapy is to return the individual to a maximum level of function at home, work, and in the community. Our experienced clinicians take the time to do a thorough assessment of not only the presenting injury but also all the contributing factors, allowing for an accurate diagnosis and a personalised treatment program that is not only effective but also long lasting. Prompt assessment and diagnosis is vital in the successful management of musculoskeletal injuries in order to minimise tissue damage and allow for a quicker return to normal.
We will use a variety of treatment techniques including:
- Manual therapy including massage, soft-tissue mobilisation, and joint mobilization
- Individualised strengthening programs
- Spinal and core rehabilitation
- Postural training
- Gait re-education
- Balance and proprioception retraining
- Pacing advice
- Ergonomic evaluation and instruction
- Patient and family education
