What is Physiotherapy and how does it work?

Physiotherapy is one way to improve your movement and feeling. It’s so much more than this!

As well as a physical therapy treatment, physiotherapy is an art and a discipline that has evolved over many, many years. It is based on the realisation that a physical injury does not have to be the end of one’s life. 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. You are in control of your body. We support you to ensure you’re on the right track.

Your life can take on a new meaning by using physiotherapy. In time, this may enable you to truly live your life again in a manner that brings you joy. If you want to play sport, keep up with the grandkids, or enjoy walks with your dog, physiotherapy can help you!

Physiotherapy is a useful tool that can maximise your mobility and well-being, regardless of your age, condition or injury. Physiotherapy can help you whether you are a student, athlete, or senior citizen.

Our Physio Approach

Our treatment covers many aspects of life, including injury treatment and prevention, patient education, exercise prescription and occupational health assessment. It also includes continence care for men or women and falls risk assessment and mitigation.

A Pinch Of Prevention’s physiotherapists pride themselves on being highly motivated individuals that are determined to assist you to be the best version of yourself. Our physiotherapists approach your treatment via rigorous assessment and sound diagnosis, which is then followed by a tailored treatment regime encompassing our 4-step process of 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: Conditioning the relevant muscles to reduce the chance of injury reoccurring.

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.

The Advantages of Physiotherapy

Physio may aid a range of people with a variety of health concerns, at different activity levels, and in different stages of life. Physiotherapy comes in many different forms, all with their own end goals in mind depending on the patient’s individual wants and needs.

Reduce Pain

Physiotherapists are trained in many forms of pain management. They all aim to reduce pain.

Improve Movement

Stiffness and/or discomfort can result in a decreased range of motion, which could have a negative impact upon your life. Physiotherapy aims to drive your range of motion by maintaining and improving joint integrity.

We aim to support your healing from the inside out, assisting you to reduce pain, improving mobility, and managing any conditions you may have.

Strengthen Muscles

Strengthening exercises are a crucial part of physiotherapy. To do this we support you to work the muscle which encourages its growth, and in time, increases its strength.

Prevent Future Injury
