Our Physio Approach

Physiotherapy as an intervention encompasses many aspects of the life journey such as injury treatment and prevention, patient education, exercise prescription, occupational health assessment, pelvic floor health, continence care for men and women, and falls risk assessment and mitigation practices.

A Pinch Of Prevention’s physiotherapists have a passion for supporting people achieve their physical best. Our physiotherapists begin your treatment by performing a thorough assessment. This is followed by a tailored treatment regimen that incorporates our 4-step process, which includes Release, Re-educate, Reinforce and Retain.

Release: The primary muscle that causes the dysfunction.

Re-Educate: Learn more about the biomechanics and musculature that control the movement you desire. This reduces pain/episodes associated with painful debility.

Reinforce: Strengthening the muscles that are responsible for injury prevention.

Keep: How to keep your form in motion so you can do the tasks you need to make progress 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.

What to Look Forward To On Your Physio Appointment?

Physiotherapists treat the musculoskeletal systems and are often recommended by GPs because of their ability to decrease pain and stiffness. Physiotherapists can serve people with many conditions. If you feel that something ‘isn’t quite right’ or could use some improvement in any way, we’re the team to turn to!

The initial consultation includes a detailed assessment, diagnosis and treatment. This takes into consideration your medical history as well as relevant symptoms. 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! There are many treatment options available and your physiotherapist should talk with you about them before you start 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. You and your goals for physiotherapy are the focal points to the treatment.

Physiotherapists can use various techniques including manual therapy, dry needling, trigger points release, joint mobilisation and manipulation and muscular and myofascial relief. 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 supporting you reach your goals.
