People of all ages and from all walks of life seek out physiotherapy in an effort to reduce their pain and improve their functioning, which is exactly what we aim to assist you with at A Pinch of Prevention.
What is Physiotherapy?
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 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.
A variety of treatments are available including massage, dry needling 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. Remember, this is your body. You’re the one who controls it and we are here to support you manage it.
You can find new meaning in your life by restoring it through the discipline and art of physiotherapy. In time, this may enable you to truly live your life again in a manner that brings you joy. If you’re a dedicated footy player, an aspiring dancer, or want to keep up with the grandkids, living your dream may be closer than you think!
No matter what your profession or age, physiotherapy can make your life manageable and improve your well-being. Whether you’re a student, office worker, senior citizen, or aiming to become the next best sports star the world has ever seen, physiotherapy may be just what you need to assist you to get back out there.

The Advantages of Physiotherapy
Physiotherapists have a wide range of training in pain management. All of these methods aim to reduce pain.
Stiffness and/or pain may lead to a reduced range of movement, which may have a negative impact on your life. Physiotherapy aims to improve your range of motion by improving and maintaining joint integrity.
Assist with Healing
Our goal is to support you from the inside out. We can aid in reducing pain, improve mobility and manage any condition you might have.
Strengthening exercises play a major role in physiotherapy. To do this we support you to work the muscle which encourages its growth, and in time, increases its strength.
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.
An Improved Quality of Life
Life is there to be lived, so don’t waste a minute more not feeling like the best version of yourself. Physiotherapy has a way to increase happiness and improve your quality of life.
What is physiotherapy good for?
Every day Australians, as well as sports professionals, trust physiotherapy to treat a wide range of conditions that can cause pain and reduce mobility.
We can diagnose, treat and monitor a variety of orthopaedic and muscloskeletal conditions like
- Neck Pain
- Back Pain
- Joint Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- TMJ or Jaw Pain
- Strains and Sprains
- Sporting Injuries
- Arthritic Conditions
- Work-Related Injuries
Not only will physiotherapy treat your symptoms for a specific injury, but your physiotherapist will provide you with long-term health maintenance, and healthcare advice which aims to optimise your quality of life.
What to Look Forward To On Your Physio Appointment?
Initial consultations include a comprehensive assessment, informed diagnosis and treatment. This includes taking into account your medical history and 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! Your treatment options are diverse and your physiotherapist should discuss them with you before you begin 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. Your treatment should be centred around you, and the results you want from physiotherapy.
A variety of techniques are used by physiotherapists, including joint mobilisation and manipulation, muscle and myofascial releases, trigger point release and manual therapy. Dry needling and exercise therapy are also some of the options. They may also recommend active treatment such as electrotherapy, taping, hydrotherapy, and clinical Pilates. Whatever treatment your physiotherapist suggests, they have considered it thoroughly and fully believe that the treatment they recommend will assist you to reach your goals.
