Hands on Therapies

We believe in the selective skilful use of manual therapies and soft tissue therapies as part of an effective treatment plan with your Physiotherapist.

Our clients love to feel relief of acute symptoms and increased range of movement, helping kick along recovery.

Manual Therapies include
Mobilisations – passive joint glides to ease stiffness, increase movement and reduce pain, these can be very gentle to very firmly applied. There are a vast array of techniques applied to all musculoskeletal areas of the body.

Manipulations – high velocity thrust techniques which usually generate a pop (cavitation), these are sparingly used where indicated after careful screening

Soft Tissue Therapies
Massage techniques – myofascial release, trigger point therapy, frictions, deep tissue therapy, effleurage) (link to remedial massage techniques)

Private Clients

A referral is not required for Physio as a private client. If you have private insurance health fund extras cover please bring your fund card and we can process your claim directly via HICAPs. Also bring along any relevant reports, scans etc.

What to expect in your consult?

Your initial new episode consultation will involve a comprehensive assessment where we ascertain your relevant history and medical history, followed by a physical examination to determine the diagnosis and cause of your problem.

This will be discussed with you where we form a treatment plan for your needs. The treatment may vary but will often include a combination of “hands on therapies”, taping, advice, exercise therapies, dry needling as well as other options.
