As one of Melbourne’s leading Physiotherapy clinics, Northern Spinal & Sports Injury Clinic is conveniently located near La Trobe University to help treat any pain you may be having.
Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that assesses, diagnoses, treats, and works to prevent disease and disability through physical means. It aims to restore optimal physical function and performance by addressing imbalances or dysfunction that may cause pain and reduced mobility.
Physiotherapists are extensively trained in manual therapy, which means we are “hands on” with our patients. This may include massage and joint mobilisation and manipulation, as well as muscle stretching, which we achieve using a wide variety of techniques.
Physiotherapists are specialised in the musculoskeletal system, and are often recommended by GP’s due to their expertise in reducing damage, stiffness and pain caused by various conditions. An initial consultation involves a thorough assessment and informed diagnosis which considers relevant symptoms and your medical history. Your treatment options are diverse and will be discussed with you before treatment commences. Physiotherapists can develop treatment and management plans that suit your needs and will most effectively address the specific diagnosis.
We are able to assess, diagnose and treat a wide variety of musclo-skeletal and orthopaedic conditions such as:
Not only will physiotherapy treat your symptoms for a specific injury, your physiotherapist will provide you with long term health maintenance, and healthcare advice which aims to optimise your quality of life.

In the case of chronic conditions, addressing your entire life and not just your pain allows us to improve your ability to get the most out of every day.
