Our Physio Approach
A Pinch Of Prevention’s physiotherapists pride themselves on being highly motivated individuals that are determined to assist you to be the best version of yourself. Our physiotherapists will first assess you and then give you a diagnosis. After that, they will create a treatment plan suitable for you following this four-step process: Release, Re-educate, Reinforce and Retain.
Release: The primary muscular component of the joint that is causing dysfunction.
Re-Educate: The biomechanics of the musculature responsible for the desired movement, to operate more efficiently so as to decrease pain/episodes of painful debility.
Reinforce: Strengthening the muscles that are responsible for injury prevention.
Retain: How to hold your form during movement so you can perform the functions you need to do to move forward in your life.
A Pinch of Prevention offers physiotherapy treatment to areas including Camp Hill, Carindale, Coopers Plains, Greenslopes, Holland Park, Mansfield, Robertson, Rochedale, Sailsbury, Sunnybank, Tarragindi, Wishart and surrounding areas.

How You Can Benefit From Physiotherapy
Physiotherapists have a wide range of training in pain management. All of these methods aim to reduce pain.
Stiffness and/or discomfort can result in a decreased range of motion, which could have a negative impact upon your life. Physiotherapy aims at improving your range of motion and maintaining joint integrity.
We want to see you heal from within by reducing pain, enhancing mobility, and providing treatment for your symptoms.
Strengthening exercises play a major role in physiotherapy. This involves working the muscle to encourage its growth and increase its strength.
Prevent Future Injury
A Pinch of Prevention is more than our name. It’s how we want to do things! We believe prevention is better than treatment, and we will do everything we can to prevent future injuries.
Improve your quality of life

What May Physiotherapy Assist With?
Physiotherapy is trusted by sports professionals, families and everyday Australians for the treatment of a range of conditions which cause pain and reduced mobility.
We can diagnose, treat and monitor a variety of orthopaedic and muscloskeletal conditions like
- Neck Pain
- Back Pain

Your physiotherapist will not only treat symptoms of a specific injury. It will also provide long-term health maintenance and advice for you to live a healthier lifestyle.
What To Expect From Your Physio Appointment?
An initial consultation involves a thorough assessment and informed diagnosis and treatment, which considers relevant symptoms and your medical history. Even if the patient has the same condition, no two treatment plans will be created the same. This goes to show that physiotherapy is all about you. Your treatment options can be varied and should be discussed with your physiotherapist 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. It doesn’t matter if you have a sore knee or headaches. Your treatment will be tailored to you and what you expect from 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 might also recommend active therapies such as orthotics, taping and hydrotherapy, rebalancing exercises, clinical Pilates or 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 supporting you reach your goals.
