Sports Injury Management
An acute sporting injury can often be quite frustrating, and may result in missed training and game time. However with timely and appropriate physiotherapy management, you will be able to return to sport sooner and decrease the likelihood of injuring the area again.
All our physiotherapists are skilled in diagnosing the cause of sporting injuries, and can advise you on the most appropriate exercises for your particular injuries and when best to return to sport.
The Active Physiotherapy Group is proud to offer our clients expert tuition in The Pilates Method, the total physical conditioning program for both your body and your mind.
Pilates improves aspects such as strength, flexibility, co-ordination and posture with a strong focus on training your postural and stability muscles, making it ideal for those recovering from injuries and perfect for those looking for fitness and muscle toning.
Through Pilates you will learn to gain control of your body so that you understand ‘how’ to move.
One of the oldest forms of healing, it is effective in managing body pains, soft tissue injuries; stress and anxiety; and relief from migraines and headaches.
All of our certified massage therapists at Active Physiotherapy Clinics have undergone additional tertiary training in massage therapy and as a result you may be eligible for Private Health Rebates.
Exercise rehabilitation is an important part of the treatment for many conditions. This includes the spectrum of people from an athlete with a shoulder impingement problem, to a new mum with lower back pain.
Exercise rehabilitation is also used effectively in helping injured workers return to the workforce, people suffering from arthritis and people recovering from orthopedic and even general surgery.
All of our physiotherapists are skilled in accurate diagnosis and appropriate prescription of therapeutic exercise.
Real time Ultrasound Imaging
Real time ultrasound imaging is a new innovation in the treatment of low back pain and pelvic floor dysfunction. The deep stabilising muscles of the trunk and pelvis are frequently switched off and weakened after an injury. Strengthening through very specific retraining of these muscles can reduce the risk of recurrence of low back pain.
This rehabilitation service is provided by a physiotherapist and is eligible for rebate under private health cover.
Women's and Men's Health
Women’s health is a specialised area of physiotherapy that focuses on issues including:
- Pelvic floor dysfunction
- Stress and urge incontinence
- Vaginal and perineal pain
We can offer Real Time Ultrasound Imaging which can non-invasively assess the pelvic floor muscles and allow you to actually see your muscles in action.
The correct performance of these exercises is so important and actually seeing it will allow your physiotherapist to modify the way you are doing your exercises as required.
