Welcome to the physiotherapy component of North Shore Chiropractic. Here our approach to treatment really focuses on how to keep you pain-free and moving well in the long term. The key to this lies in thoroughly assessing and understanding how your body is currently moving and how your muscles are activating. Here we can hone in on any dysfunctions underlying your pain or that may have you at risk of a similar injury further down the track.
Additionally, we want to know what goals you have moving forward and then help you reach them. Whether the goal is to be able to raise your arm overhead to hang out the washing or to be selected for a representative team in your sport of choice we can tailor our approach to help you reach this.
During your first consult, we want to provide you with a definitive diagnosis of your injury and get you out of the pain caused by it. To achieve this, our favourite hands-on techniques include soft tissue release, joint mobilisation, active-release techniques and trigger point therapy. We also have a range of electrotherapy modalities to take advantage of. If your needs are relating to rehabilitation post-surgery or sports injury, we will provide you with a comprehensive program outlining the treatments and exercises to be used at each stage of the process and also what goals we want to achieve at each of these stages.
After addressing the initial pain, we will provide you with the needed tools to start taking control of the dysfunction that has caused the injury and prevent it from occurring again. These tools will come in the form of specific stretches, self-massage techniques, activation exercises, strength exercises and/or neural gliding techniques. With these at your disposal you can feel in control and confident in your body’s ability to improve and function well.
We look forward to meeting you and assisting you in achieving your body’s potential.
