What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a dynamic profession that uses a range of treatment techniques to restore movement and function within the body. Exercising sound clinical judgment and informed interpretation of findings is at the core of a physiotherapist’s skills.
All physiotherapists employed at 30 Devonshire Street are specialists in the outpatient management of orthopaedic and musculoskeletal conditions including sports injuries.
Our clinic can assist in the treatment and management of:
Following orthopaedic surgery to the spine or limbs, physiotherapy can be extremely beneficial in reducing pain and inflammation. It also helps to restore range of movement, muscle strength and normal patterns of movement.
Physiotherapy will help improve range of motion, strength and decrease the pain that can be associated with a period of joint immobilisation due to fracture management.
Back and neck pain
Pain in the back or neck can have many causes. Physiotherapy can aid in correct diagnosis and treatment through mobilising stiff joints, stretching tight muscles, improving nerve movement and increasing strength and control in the muscles that support the area.
Neck joint stiffness and/or neck muscle tension can cause headaches. This can often be effectively treated with manual techniques and postural correction.
Treatment will help to manage many injuries including knee/ankle ligament sprains, rotator cuff and shoulder impingement problems, patello-femoral pain, etc.
Work related injuries
These can be managed by correcting postural dysfunction and ergonomic assessment. Injuries can be helped with a range of pain relieving techniques and exercise modalities.
Other general joint and soft tissue dysfunction
Other soft tissue and joint problems such as frozen shoulder, osteoarthritis, tennis and golfer’s elbow, etc., can also be helped with strengthening, range of motion exercises and manual techniques.
Management of complaints after breast cancer treatment
We assess and treat connective tissure dysfunctions such as cording, which commonly affect the shoulder post-breast surgery. With specialised mobilisation techniques and graded exercise plans, we can help patients to recover normal pain-free motion.
We are open 8.00am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday.
