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. Your treatment begins with a thorough assessment, followed by sound diagnosis. Then, a customised treatment program is created that includes our 4-step process: Release, Re-educate, Reinforce and Retain.
Release: The main muscle that is causing the 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: Conditioning the relevant muscles to reduce the chance of injury reoccurring.
Retain: How do you hold your body during movement to allow you to perform the functions you need in order to move forward in 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.

The Advantages of Physiotherapy
Physiotherapists are skilled in many types of pain management.
Stiffness and/or discomfort can result in a decreased range of motion, which could have a negative impact upon your life. Physiotherapy aims to improve your range of motion by improving and maintaining joint integrity.
Assist in Healing
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 is done by assisting you to work the muscle, which stimulates its growth and increases its strength over time.
Prevent Future Injury
A Pinch of Prevention isn’t just our name, it’s also our game! We believe prevention is better than treatment, and we will do everything we can to prevent future injuries.
