The Benefits of Physiotherapy

Physio may help a range of people with a variety of health concerns, at different activity levels, and in different stages of life. Physiotherapy comes in many different forms, all with their own end goals in mind depending on the patient’s individual wants and needs.

Reduce Pain

Physiotherapists are well-trained in many different forms of pain management, all of which aim to reduce feelings of pain.

Improve Movement

Stiffness and/or pain may lead to a reduced range of movement, which may have a negative impact on your life. Physiotherapy aims to improve your range of motion by improving and maintaining joint integrity.

Assist in Healing

We aim to help you heal from the inside out, assisting you to reduce pain, improve mobility, and manage any conditions you may have.

Strengthen Muscles

Strengthening exercises are a key element of physiotherapy. To do this we help you work the muscle which encourages its growth, and in time, increases its strength.

Prevent Future Injury

A pinch of prevention isn’t just our name, it’s also our game! Prevention is always better than cure, so we do all we can to help you prevent any future injuries.

Increase Quality of Life

Life is meant to be enjoyed, so don’t wait a minute longer to get started! Physiotherapy helps to get those endorphins flowing, increasing your happiness and quality of life.

What May Physiotherapy Services Help With?

Physiotherapy Mount Gravatt East

  • Whiplash
  • Shoulder Pain
  • TMJ or Jaw Pain
  • Strains and Sprains

We also help mitigate conditions such as pelvic pain, incontinence and other pelvis-related disorders.

Centrally located in Upper Mt Gravatt, our experienced physiotherapists are proficient in the most recent techniques and exercises, relieving and improving your overall wellbeing. They offer the necessary support to help you manage your pain and restore mobility.

What To Expect From Your Physio Appointment

Physiotherapists work with the musculoskeletal system, and are often recommended by GPs due to their ability to help reduce pain and stiffness. Physiotherapists also work with people with a variety of conditions, aiming to help their bodies move better and to help them get the most out of life. If you feel that something ‘isn’t quite right’ or could use some improvement in any way, we’re the team to turn to!

An initial consultation involves a thorough assessment and informed diagnosis and treatment, which considers relevant symptoms and your medical history. No two patients’ treatment plans will look the same, even if they have the same condition, so it goes to show that physiotherapy truly is about you! Your treatment options are diverse and your physiotherapist should discuss them with you before you begin treatment.

Your physiotherapist should develop treatment and management plans that suit your needs, so that together, you can address the specific problems you are experiencing. Whether that’s a sore knee, headaches, arthritis, or a sports injury, your treatment is centred around you and what you hope to get out of physiotherapy.

Physiotherapists use a range of techniques which include things like joint mobilisation and manipulation, muscular and myofascial release, trigger point release, manual therapy, dry needling, and exercise therapy. They may also recommend active treatments such as rebalancing exercises, clinical Pilates, orthotics, taping, hydrotherapy and electrotherapy. Whatever your physiotherapist suggests for you, they’ve considered it carefully and wholly believe that the treatment/s they’ve selected have the best chance of helping you reach your goals.
