People of all ages, from all walks of life, seek physiotherapy to relieve their pain and improve their functioning. That’s exactly what A Pinch Of Prevention aims to do.
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 type of injury you have, there are physiotherapy options that will support you feel in your best shape again.
There are many physiotherapy treatments that may suit you, such as dry needling, massage and joint mobilisation. We will work with you to determine the best treatment option for you. This will allow you to feel in complete control. After all, it’s your body– you’re steering this ship, we’re just here to keep you 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 what your profession or age, physiotherapy can make your life manageable and improve your 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 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: 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 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.

Your treatment options can be varied and should be discussed with your physiotherapist before you begin treatment.
Your physiotherapist must develop treatment and management strategies that suit your condition and goals. 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.
