Our Physio treatments aim to restore and facilitate movement. We use the most progressive treatment techniques to treat the full spectrum of injuries.
We emphasise a “hands on” approach within the intimacy of our private consulting rooms. At Ellenbrook Physio you will find a unique, powerful and evidence based approach to managing pain and improving life performance.
We are Teachers
Our philosophy is founded upon teaching people about the origins of their symptoms, and equipping them with strategies to solve them. A key point of difference within our approach is the strong emphasis upon education and exercise as a pathway to recovery. We will take the time to teach you about your injury.
Movement is the Miracle Drug
We also believe in the healing power of movement, and that every injury will befit from movement and exercise in some form.
We know that Life requires a blend of physical attributes that allow us to function at high levels. These include a blend of strength, flexibility, mobility and stability. When you come to Ellenbrook Physiotherapy you will experience an integrative treatment approach to address all of these needs via a wide variety of treatments.
We take this Personally
We seek to connect with you upon a personal level to actively involve you in the process of restoring your health. Our ultimate aim is to establish healing partnerships with our patients, allowing them to realise their full potential in health and life.
For us the agenda is simple, “We want to help you be your best”
Our therapists are expertly trained in a range of “hands-on” techniques to help with you diagnosis and treatment including:
- Soft tissue treatment (massage, trigger point release, myofascial release, deep tissue massage)
- Joint Mobilisation and Manipulations
- Neuromuscular Techniques
Facilitation of Posture, Motor Control and Muscle Retraining.
A range of taping techniques are commonly used as an adjunct to Physiotherapy treatment and can help to :
- Provide support and stability to the injured area
- Relieve pain by reducing load on the painful area
- Re-train posture and encourage normal movement
Aid confidence when returning to sport.
Dry Needling is an effective and increasingly popular muscle releasing technique that works to resolve painful and taut bands within muscle fibres (trigger points) often referred to as ‘muscle knots’. By increasing blood flow into these areas the result is a reduction in pain and correction of dysfunction within that muscle.
Our Physiotherapists are trained in Dry Needling and using in conjunction with other techniques to achieve great results.
As part of injury management and rehabilitation Electrotherapeutic Modalities such as Ultrasound, Interferential Therapy and Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation can be very beneficial.
The effects of these modalities can provide pain relief as well as managing inflammation and aiding the body’s natural healing processes, helping you to keep moving.
BPPV or Positional Vertigo is a very common condition that our Physiotherapists are experienced in treating. Vertigo can cause episodes of dizziness that are triggered by movements of your head. There are manoeuvres that we can help you with to resolve your dizziness, address other factors that may be contributing and get your back to feeling your best.
We want to help you to be empowered and motivated to manage your injuries and make positive changes to optimise your health. Through education we can ensure that you leave our clinic feeling confident about the cause of your symptoms, how to manage them and ultimately how to maximise your health and overall well-being.
