What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of pain, injuries and other musculoskeletal conditions by correcting symptomatic or abnormal movements and functions. Our physiotherapist looks at both the injured area as well as those areas that contribute to the region of the presenting condition.

Our physiotherapy treatment involves evidence-based and current hands-on techniques including:

  • Mobilisation
  • Manipulation
  • Soft tissue massage
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Dry needling
  • Muscle energy techniques
  • Mobility based facilitation techniques

Our rehabilitation process involves guided movement-based exercises that retrain and strengthen areas of the body specific to your individual symptoms and goals. The combination of hands on treatment and rehabilitation assists recovery and empowers you to achieve your desired outcomes.

Physiotherapy treatment can contribute to:

  • Recovery from injury by retraining your musculoskeletal system and nerve pathways.
  • Alleviating pain, tension or symptoms within the body.
  • Increasing mobility, stability and strength.
  • Preventing future pain, dysfunction and injury.
  • Increased levels of fitness and performance.

Why Choose Exercise Classes with a Physiotherapist


sports injury rehabilitation

Our physiotherapist will use their in-depth knowledge and experience in injury management and prevention to assess and formulate a personalised exercise program tailored to address your specific injury or condition. Depending on your level of private health insurance, you may be eligible for a rebate on the cost of your Exercise Classes.

What to Expect from Physiotherapy Exercise Classes

Your Exercise Class journey will begin with a one-on-one Initial Consultation with the physiotherapist where a variety of movement tests will be performed and goals will be set – this will form the foundation of your exercise program. Depending on your level of experience, the physio may recommend a private class before joining a semi-private class. Semi-private classes have a maximum of 3 clients allowing the physio to provide personalised exercises with a high level of supervision. Your program is then reassessed at regular intervals to ensure you reach your injury and fitness goals.
