Low Back Injuries & Pain
Seeking physio treatment for back pain is one of the most common reasons people come to a physio clinic. Lower back pain is usually caused by a sudden injury to one of the intervertebral discs, joints muscles or ligaments that support the back. This usually transpires from a specific movement or activity.
Back pain and injuries are quite unique to each person, as is the physio treatment plan required. Depending on the cause, position, severity and other important factors, treatment can include massage, manual therapies, clinical Pilates, exercises and stretches.
Neck Injuries & Pain
Neck pain or a stiff neck are usually the cause of either injury or postural problems. Neck pain can be quite debilitating and can affect your ability to fully move your head. A neck injury caused by a severe jerk (also known as whiplash) will usually require a combination of treatments. A physio can be very helpful in providing exercises to improve the motion range and build back strength in the neck.
Headaches & Migraines
Headache and migraine pain is a distressing ailment and can greatly impact one’s quality of life. There are many types of migraines and headaches that all have differing triggers. The correct diagnosis of what’s causing your headache and migraine pain will assist with your treatment.
We use the Watson Headache Approach for effective headache and migraine treatment available at our Newstead clinic in Brisbane. We also have access to Cefaly, a new electrical stimulation device that has been shown to be effective in the treatment and prevention of headaches and migraines.
Jaw Pain & Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD)
Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) is the term given for problems that affect the jaw. Temporomandibular pain can include toothaches, headaches, neck aches, dizziness and upper shoulder pain. Clicking and popping of the jaw may also be a symptom, along with trouble chewing food.
Jaw pain treatment can be expertly managed with the help of a physio. We can devise a TMD treatment plan to manage pain and improve the range of motion.
There are many different ways to injure your shoulder (including dislocations, fractures, rotator cuff injuries, bursitis etc.) due to its wide and versatile range of motion. Injuries are most frequently caused by athletic activities, manual labour or repetitive movements. Your physio will devise a recovery plan to rehabilitate your shoulder with treatments that might include manual therapy, dry needling, massage and exercises.
Elbow Pain & Forearm Injuries
Your forearm and elbow are essential to hand and arm movement, so injuries can be quite disruptive to your everyday life. All injuries – including tendon overload, ligament tears, fractures and dislocations – require accurate diagnosis for optimum recovery. Physiotherapy treatment for these areas involve restoring normal motor control and strengthening the muscles with stretches and exercises.
Wrist, Hand & Finger Injuries
Your hands are used every day for almost all daily life activities. This can make it not only easy to cause pain or injury to either your hands or wrists, but it also makes it difficult to rest when required. Physiotherapy treatment will usually include splint or taping, exercises to perform at home as well as how to best manage daily activities with your injury.
Hip Pain & Groin Strains
Usually caused by sporting activities, hip and groin strains normally occur due to a fast change of direction, or rapid acceleration and deceleration (this is common in sports such as football and soccer). Most hip and groin strains respond extremely well to physiotherapy, allowing you to return to your normal activities relatively quickly.
Pain on the outside of the hip can be caused by tendinopathy of the gluteus medius and gluteus minimis muscles and tendons, as well as bursitis over the greater trochanter. The pain is usually a result of abnormal loading on the outside of the hip. Physiotherapy management will, therefore, involve advice and education, massage and a progressive exercise program designed to assist with healing of the injured tissue.
Hip pain can also be caused by osteoarthritis of the ball and socket joint of the hip. Physiotherapy management involves soft tissue massage, motor control exercises and strengthening exercises to help maintain muscle function and minimize pain.
Knee pain or knee injuries are very common as well as complex. There are many ways knee injuries can happen, but it usually occurs from a fall or collision, severe twisting, excessive force or overuse. Your physiotherapy treatment will be determined by the cause of your knee pain and will most likely include hands-on manual therapy, massage, clinical Pilates and an exercise program designed to improve mobility.
Foot & Ankle Injuries
The most common foot and ankle injuries are sprains, torn ligaments and fractures. These are usually caused by sudden or unexpected movement that results in a twisting or rolling motion. This can occur in physical activity, uneven footing or even unsuitable footwear. Physiotherapy is a necessary part of the rehabilitation process to restore your foot/ankle back to full use.
