We utilise a range of 'hands-on' manual techniques to help assist in the diagnosis of your condition as well as to soothe, mobilise, manipulate, release and stretch the soft tissues involved in your injury/condition.

The choice of therapies can be varied due to the best fit for the injury/condition and patient preference with all appointments being 30 MINUTES long.

What is physiotherapy?

Musculoskeletal physiotherapy is an effective and evidence-based approach to managing conditions of the spine, muscles and joints throughout the body. Your pain could be caused by altered joint mobility, neural tissue or muscle imbalance which our physiotherapists will help you to better understand after your first session. We use a number of different techniques to help with your problems including but not limited to:
- Soft tissue release and massage
- Manual therapy and joint mobilisation
- Dry needling
- Clinically appropriate exercise therapy
- Education and advice

Physiotherapy can help with a broad range of issues – even those that haven’t improved with the use of medication or surgery. If you are curious to see if we could help you, call and ask to speak to one of our friendly staff members today!

Physiotherapy Exercise Sessions (formerly Clinical Pilates)

Pilates room picture.jpg
 
 

Pilates is an innovative system of mind-body exercise that has evolved
from the therapeutic principles of Joseph Pilates. It develops self-awareness
by enhancing the mind-body connection, improving
posture, strength, flexibility, and efficiency of movement.
 

It conditions the entire body in a low to no impact fashion, which can
benefit people of all ages, aptitudes, and fitness levels. Professional
dancers and athletes have been utilising Pilates for decades, however,
it can benefit those who want everything from a great work out to
rehabilitation. With time and dedication Pilates can dramatically
transform the way your body looks, feels and performs.
 

Other benefits:

·         improves strength, flexibility, and balance

·         develops deep abdominal and core strength

·         tones and lengthens muscles

·         relieves back pain and joint stress

·         promotes recovery from strain and injury

·         restores alignment and flexibility to spine

·         increases joint range of motion

·         improves circulation

·         heightens neuromuscular coordination

·         develops fitness for everyday and sustained activity

·         enhances mobility, agility, and stamina

Sometimes through life, we are faced with the option of undergoing surgery to help us continue to live life to its fullest. At Wilson Physiotherapy we understand that this can be a daunting prospect, however we strive to diminish the impact of surgery by offering rehabilitation services to get you back on your feet quickly and enjoying what life has to offer. Our physiotherapists are well trained to guide you through carefully graded and structured rehabilitation programs to get you moving to your potential at the different stages of your recovery. We also offer prehabilitation services which help to get you to your functional best before surgery, and thus streamlining your post-surgical rehabilitation.

 
 

Dry Needling

Dry needling is one the treatment options your physiotherapist can choose to offer you. It is a pain free way of reducing painful muscular points that may be the cause of your symptoms or reducing your strength. We use only high grade single use disposable acupuncture needles. Dry needling is painless. Nothing is injected and it is often immediately effective, especially in conjunction with other manual treatments and strengthening exercises.
