PHYSIOTHERAPY

Our physiotherapy philosophy is centred around identifying and removing barriers to efficient and pain-free movement. During your initial consultation your physiotherapist will listen to your injury history and goals, watch you move, and perform functionally relevant tests. Treatment will depend on your goals but will usually include an individually constructed exercise program facilitated with hands on techniques as well as education regarding issues relevant to your recovery. 

Our physiotherapist Joe Rowley specialises in: 

  • Diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal pain and injuries 
  • Prevention, diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries 
  • Rehabilitation post surgery
 

SOFT TISSUE THERAPY

PERFORMANCE COACHING

Performance coaching is the selection and implementation of specific training activities in order to target improvements in physical attributes. The key part to our approach is to ensure that what is learnt in training can be transferred to an individuals sport, occupation or recreational activity. Training plans are carefully designed and monitored to ensure that the individual is responding optimally to the training stimuli.
