Physiotherapists help you get the most out of life. They help you recover from injury and surgery, reduce pain and stiffness, increase mobility and prevent further injury. They listen to your needs to tailor a treatment specific to your condition. As first contact practitioners, you don’t need a doctor’s referral to see a physiotherapist. Physiotherapists, doctors, and other health professionals will often work as part of a team to plan and manage treatment for a specific condition.

Physiotherapists are trained to assess your condition, diagnose the problem, and help you understand what’s wrong. Your treatment plan will take into account your lifestyle, activities and general health.

The following are common treatment methods use by physiotherapists:

  • Exercise programs to improve mobility and strengthen muscles
  • Joint manipulation and mobilisation to reduce pain and stiffness
  • Muscle re-education to improve control
  • Soft tissue mobilisation (massage)
  • Dry needling

What makes Physiotherapy different at Clinic 88?

Hands-on Therapy! Not just exercises prescription but experienced soft tissue manipulation.

As Clinic 88 is a multidisciplinary team (Exercise Physiologists, Pilates, Soft Tissue Therapy), our Physiotherapist can focus on a hands on approach, one on one, client-facing session. Hence you will receive an assessment, hands-on manipulation and exercise prescription. If there is an area where the physiotherapist feels you need more care, then we have multiple people who have expertise in specific areas (Soft Tissue Therapists for specific Remedial Massage type work, Exercise Physiologists for particular exercise prescription and Pilates for the uniquely prescribed exercises).
