What is Physiotherapy?
As well as a physical therapy treatment, physiotherapy is an art and a discipline that has evolved 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 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. 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.
Physiotherapy can be a valuable tool for improving mobility and well being, no matter your age or condition. 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. 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: To improve the capacity of your musculature’s biomechanics, and decrease pain/episodes of painful debility,
Reinforce: Strengthening the muscles that are responsible for injury prevention.
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.

How You Can Benefit From Physiotherapy
Physiotherapists are skilled in many types of pain management.
Stiffness and/or discomfort can result in a decreased range of motion, which could have a negative impact upon your life. Physiotherapy aims to improve your range of motion by improving and maintaining joint integrity.
Assist with Healing
We want to see you heal from within by reducing pain, enhancing mobility, and providing treatment for your symptoms.
Strengthening exercises are a key element 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
Prevention is more than just our motto. It’s our business! Prevention is always better than cure, so we do all we can to prevent any future injuries.
Increase the 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 to Expect During Your Physio Appointment?
An initial consultation involves a thorough assessment and informed diagnosis and treatment, which considers relevant symptoms and your medical history. Even if the patient has the same condition, no two treatment plans will be created the same. This goes to show that physiotherapy is all about you. Your treatment options can be varied and should be discussed with your physiotherapist 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. 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.
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 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.
