A pinch of physiotherapy may be just what you need

No matter what brought you here, it’s great to see that you are taking the first steps towards feeling your best. People of all ages and walks of life seek physiotherapy to lessen their pain and improve function. This is exactly what we at A Pinch of Prevention are here to assist you with.

What is Physiotherapy?

When you seek healthcare  you’re hoping to feel and move better– and that’s what physiotherapy aims to provide. But it’s more than that!

Physiotherapy, in addition to being a form of physical therapy, is an art form and a discipline that has been evolving over many, many years. It was founded on the belief that a person’s physical injury does not have to be the final straw in their lives. 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.

A variety of treatments are available including massage, dry needling and joint mobilisation. We work together to find the best form of treatment that suits you. Remember, this is your body. You’re the one who controls it and we are here to support you manage it.

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 can help you whether you are a student, athlete, or senior citizen.

Our Physio Approach

A Pinch of Prevention’s Physiotherapy covers many aspects of the life path, such as injury treatment, prevention, and patient education.

A Pinch Of Prevention’s physiotherapists have a passion for supporting people achieve their physical best. 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: 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.

What To Expect From Your Physio Appointment?

Physiotherapists work with the musculoskeletal system, and are often recommended by GPs due to their ability to assist to reduce pain and stiffness. A variety of conditions can also be assisted by physiotherapists. Their goal is to make people’s lives easier and their bodies function better. We are the team to call if you feel something is ‘not quite right’ or you need some extra support.

A consultation is a thorough evaluation and informed diagnosis. It also includes a discussion about your medical history. Even though they may have the same condition or symptoms, no two patients will receive the exact same treatment plan. It is important to remember that physiotherapy is tailored to your needs. You have many options and your physiotherapist will discuss them with you.

Your physiotherapist should create bespoke treatment and management plans that are suitable to your needs after working together on the problems that you have. Your treatment should be centred around you, and the results you want 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 may also recommend active treatment such as electrotherapy, taping, hydrotherapy, and clinical Pilates. 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.

Answers to Your Physiotherapy Questions

Do physiotherapists appointments require a referral?
Physiotherapists are known as autonomous first-contact practitioners, which means that you do not need a doctor’s referral to come and see us if you have an acute injury or chronic pain. The physiotherapists of A Pinch Of Physiotherapy are more than happy to work alongside your healthcare team; be they podiatrists, dentists, GPs or naturopaths; and are delighted to accept Enhanced Primary Care plans from your treating physician.
What qualifications do physios have?
Physiotherapy in Australia is a highly regulated industry that requires successful completion of university-level tertiary studies, active membership with The Australian Physiotherapist Association (APA) and registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). Each member must complete at least 20 hours in continuing practice education each calendar year to keep their membership active. These rules allow patients to be confident that their physiotherapists are board-certified professionals, subject to an ethics code of conduct, and fully informed about current research and techniques in their field.
How many physiotherapy sessions will I need?
Based on your goals, treatment plans and individual needs, the number of treatments that you might need may vary. For some, they might only need a few sessions. Others might require a long-term and more comprehensive plan.
Is there a desired clothing for physio treatment?
You don’t have to dress up to impress! Wear whatever you are comfortable in. If possible, bring something that will allow us the opportunity to treat the affected areas. You might wear shorts if your knee pain is severe, and a singlet if you have pain in your shoulders.
Can I pay for physiotherapy through Medicare or private insurance?
It all depends on your particular case. Physiotherapy coverage may also be available through Medicare under an Enhanced Primary Care plan. Private health insurance may or may not cover physiotherapy. We recommend that you speak with your insurer for advice.
How do I determine if physiotherapy is right for me?
Get in touch with our team if you aren’t sure physiotherapy would be right for your needs. Our physio team will work with you to assess your needs and determine the best possible treatment options, if any, that may be beneficial for you.
