About Physiotherapist Melbourne
At Physiotherapist Melbourne, we’re committed to pain management and rehabilitation. Regardless of whether you’re an elite athlete or an occasional exerciser, we’re motivated to help you achieve full injury recovery and fitness objectives.
As the name suggests, physiotherapists are known to help return a person’s mobility, flexibility, movement and reduce or eliminate any illness/pain caused by musculoskeletal and/or neurological conditions. Basically, return proper function of the body and remove any dysfunction. Physios mostly use using manual therapy (very hands based), exercise programs and electrotherapy techniques with non-invasive techniques and no or minimal medication.
One should consider a full physical check-up prior embarking on any fitness programs to avoid the possibility of developing or reactivating injuries. Our Melbourne Health Clinic is located close to the city of Melbourne, at just 7 km away. We offer evening appointments and on the spot private health insurance rebates so need only pay the gap.

Role of Physiotherapist
Is essential to assess how your body moves and identify areas where it needs correction. Correct movement and alignment distribute the stresses caused by gravity to areas of the body designed to cope with such stresses.
Once we move away from our ideal biomechanical alignment, stresses to our joints and other soft tissues such as muscles, tendons, ligaments etc.. start to take its toll. The body will undergo a number of adaptations to protect itself and cope as best it can but eventually it manifests as pain coupled with reduced movement. This usually takes many years (if we exclude sudden impact type injuries) which is why most people will not be able to explain the direct cause of their pain.
Physiotherapists look at the site of pain and use a number of techniques to reduce the level of pain. In addition, they take a step back and assess the cause of the pain which is often related to alignment adaptations that are no longer serving you well.
Techniques commonly used by Physiotherapists include mobilisation, trigger point therapy, soft tissue massage, dry needling, ultrasound incorporated with progressive personalised exercise rehabilitation programs. Advise and education is critical to understand how to prevent the condition returning as well as head towards corrective care by being an active participant in your recovery.
How long you choose to benefit from Physiotherapy care is up to you. You may want simply the pain to end or you may decide restoring normal movement and alignment as well as core strength is important for the long game.Make appointment or call (03) 9380 5434
