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.
Many people may be of the opinion that physiotherapists mainly work with back and sports related injuries, but they would be very mistaken. Northern Spinal physiotherapists are highly trained health professionals who provide treatment for people suffering from physical problems arising from injury, disease, illness and ageing.
Before one of our physiotherapists determines the appropriate treatment for your specific condition, they will thoroughly assess you with standard medical, orthopaedic and special osteopathic tests.
Using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of hands-on techniques, our physiotherapist can identify important types of dysfunction in your body and determine personalised treatment plans to fix them.
You can find our Northern Spinal & Sports Injury physiotherapy clinics in Reservoir and Melbourne CBD, so get in contact today if you are struggling with any injury or pain.
At Northern Spinal, we address the cause of your pain as opposed to just the symptoms. We treat each patient as an individual, which leads to faster relief and a greater chance of complete recovery. 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.
