What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is not only a physical treatment. It is considered an art and a discipline that has evolved over many years. It was born out of the recognition that a physical injury doesn’t need to be the beginning and the end of a person’s existence. Whatever the injury, there is physiotherapy that can ease your discomfort and feel better. It promotes recovery and helps you return to the activities you love.
You have a variety of treatment options available, including dry needling, massage, joint mobilisation and many others. We work together to find the best form of treatment that suits you. It’s your body, you are the captain of your ship. We’re here to support you stay afloat.
Through the art and discipline of physiotherapy new meaning can be restored back to your life. In time, this may enable you to truly live your life again in a manner that brings you joy. You can live your dreams if you are a passionate footy player, an aspiring dancer or just want to keep up with your grandkids.
No matter your age, condition, injury, or profession, physiotherapy can be a powerful tool to make the most of your mobility and well-being. Physiotherapy could be the right treatment for you, whether you’re a student or an office worker or senior citizen.
Our Physio Approach
A Pinch Of Prevention’s physiotherapists are driven people who want to support you achieve your best physical self. 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 primary muscle of the joint 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: Strengthen the appropriate muscles to reduce the risk of future injury.
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.
