Intial Physiotherapy or Exercise Physiology Assessment

Our initial assessment is free and involves a complete analysis of your injury or pain. This is extremely important as the bio mechanical effects from one area may be contributing to another.

For example, a typical case of back pain would involve assessing the lumbar spine, pelvis and hips, as all these areas can contribute to back pain.

This comprehensive type of assessment is vital in determining the most appropriate treatment plan – with a goal for long term reduction of pain and recurring injuries.

 

Our Physiotherapists are trained in a wide range of speciality areas.

Areas we cover:

Back Pain

An assessment is extremely important to determine the exact reason and contributing factors behind your back pain and what steps you need to take to resolve pain in the long term.  Some common causes of lower back pain include

  • Lumbar Disc Bulge or Prolapse
  • Lumbar Facet Joint Irritation
  • Pelvic Instability and Sacro-Iliac Joint Irritation (SIJ pain)
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Spinal Canal Stenosis
  • Scar Tissue or Neural Tension as a result of previous injury
  • Lumbar Instability

Sporting Injuries

At MD Health we treat a wide range of sporting injuries, from the acute to chronic sporting injuries, such as

  • Back pain and injuries
  • Knee injuries such as ACL tears, Patello-femoral joint pain and Meniscal injuries
  • Shoulder pain and injuries such as Sub-acromial impingement
  • Ankle injuries such as acute ankle sprains

We will assess all these areas in detail and determine not just the how to reduce the pain in the short term, but a comprehensive plan to reduce the chance of re injury in the long term

Arthritis and Osteoporosis

MD Health Physiotherapy can help with

  • Improving the strength and control of the joints – Poor muscle strength has a major affect on pain and joint function.
  • Reduce Joint Pain – Strengthening the muscles makes a huge impact on how much arthritis affects your life, in particular pain from knee arthritis often comes from poor knee cap control, not the arthritis itself, which can be managed with exercise
  • Improved ability to Function – Limitations in what you can do is usually due to weakness, more than the arthritis itself.  Strengthening the muscles can have a huge impact on your quality of life

Pre and Rehabilitation

Prehabilitation – Prepare your body for surgery. Effective prehabilitation will assist your body in faster recovery, reduce your hospital stay, minimise rehabilitation time as well as complement the outcome of your procedure

Rehabilitation– Many of our clients have undergone very intrusive surgery and our program has enabled them to make a very impressive recovery as well as making a huge difference to the outcome of their surgery.

With good strength base prior to surgery, your rehabilitation can soley focus on the area directly affected by the surgery. This is why preparing your body for surgery can cut the recovery time to just weeks instead of months.

We are able to strengthen you from head to toe ( remember when you are in the hospital bed and inactive for several days , your muscles will degenerate). If you have decreased overall muscle strength before your surgery you will have a prolonged and painful recovery.
