At Prime Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic, physiotherapy is the service at the centre of our care. Physiotherapy involves a combination of treatments used to gain restoration and optimum potential of movement.

We see healthiness, happiness and full functional movement as key to fulfilling and maximising quality of life.

Your personal physiotherapist will select an individual treatment plan for you following a detailed initial assessment. Your initial assessment will involve your therapist taking a background history of your problem and completing a physical examination to identify the cause of your symptoms. Following assessment and diagnosis a treatment plan will be put in place to get you on the road to recovery as quickly as possible.

Physiotherapy treatment includes:

  • Joint mobilisation
  • Soft tissue manipulation
  • Exercises
  • Balance retraining
  • Sports taping
  • Pilates

Physiotherapy treatment is always selected based on scientific evidence to ensure we provide the best service for you. Treatment is patient centered to ensure we meet your specific goals.

Physiotherapy can be used to treat people with a large variety of conditions, despite their age, gender or background. Our experienced physiotherapists work within specialist fields of musculoskeletal, neurological, surgical and women’s health physiotherapy to cater for your needs.

  • Musculoskeletal physiotherapists treat people who have problems with their soft tissues, bones and joints such as back pain and sports injuries.
  • Neurological physiotherapists treat people who have disorders affecting their brain/ spinal cord such as Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease.
  • Surgical physiotherapists treat people pre and post-surgery to prepare the body for surgical procedures or rehabilitation following operations such as joint replacements.
  • Women’s health physiotherapists treat females with issues such as pelvic floor weakness, pelvic girdle pain or incontinence.

Common symptoms we treat as a result of these conditions include pain, joint stiffness and muscle weakness all contributing to reduction in movement and functional activity. We understand these symptoms can be debilitating and our physiotherapists strive to the best from you in every session.

Joint Mobilisation

Joint mobilisation is a form of manual physiotherapy in which your physiotherapist performs controlled passive movements on your joint through range. Our physiotherapists use joint mobilisation as both as assessment tool and effective treatment method for many joints. The mobilisation of the joint allows for lubrication of joint surfaces, and this ‘synovial sweep’ mechanism helps to reduce the spasm of surrounding muscles.

Joint mobilisation is also beneficial for a number of other reasons:

  • Gentle joint movement through range helps to reduce joint pain
  • Forceful joint movements into resistance help with relieving joint stiffness and increasing joint range of movement

Our ultimate aim is to restore the maximum potential of joint movement possible. Our specialist physiotherapists are highly trained and experienced in carrying out joint mobilisations as part of your effective rehabilitation plan.

To book an appointment with us please call Prime Physio and Sports Injury Clinic on 07 3372 8866, alternatively you can e-mail info@primephysioclinic.com.au for further information.

Soft Tissue Manipulation

At Prime Physio and Sports Injury Clinic, one of our common methods of physiotherapy treatment is the manipulation of soft tissues. The term ‘soft tissues’ refers to connecting structures other than bone, such as tendons, ligaments and fibrous tissue, in addition to muscles, nerves and synovial membranes.

Soft tissue manipulation takes the form of therapeutic massage techniques, applicable for a wide range of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions.

Benefits of soft tissue manipulation

There are many benefits of soft tissue manipulation. It is an excellent form of physiotherapy treatment as it can be used to treat almost anyone.

The main benefits of soft tissue manipulation are:

  • The manipulation of soft tissues stimulates the blood supply to the affected area, increasing the delivery of nutrients and removal of toxins for an accelerated healing time.
  • It is the most effective way of relieving fibrous muscle knots, usually acquired through poor posture or stress.
  • Massage can also be used as an energising, uplifting and relaxing treatment approach, contributing to your body’s overall increased well-being to benefit both the body and mind.
  • Soft tissue manipulation or massage is also popular with active or sporting people for competition preparation and prevention of injury.

Our specialist physiotherapists can adapt depth of massage according to injury, pain levels and intention of treatment.
