Find out how you can get back to the life you want to live!
Did you know that up to 80% of Australians will experience back pain in their lives? Studies have shown that an active approach including hands on treatment and exercise will not only decrease the amount of time you suffer from back pain, but ALSO decrease the likelihood of it returning.
For most people being active is a part of life. For some a simple walk along the beach in the morning/evening is their tipple, however others crave a tougher challenge. Whether it’s a weekly light 5km jog, a weekend bike ride or golf game, or a game of soccer in the evenings, sports are a staple part of a lot of our customers lives.
Is your neck pain preventing you from moving your head as easily as you used to? Can’t turn your neck as easily as you used to?

Scoliosis is a condition of the spine that most often presents in young girls during growth spurts, but can present in boys and older patients too.
Scoliosis is defined as a sideways curve in the spine over 10 degrees, with a rotation of the spine too. It’s a 3D deformity of posture, and it doesn’t correct without treatment, it actually worsens.
Foot and Heel Pain
We use our feet constantly so it is no wonder they are often a source of pain. The most common place for pain in the feet is on the inside edge of the heel and this is generally due to plantar fasciitis or heel spurs.
This pain may simply begin for no apparent reason or it may start after changing you normal shoes or the surface you are walking on, following a fall, changing your exercise routine or even just putting on a few extra kilos.
Are ankle injuries getting in the way of your sport?
Did you know that the most common type of injury in the ankle is a sprain to the lateral (outer) ligaments (also known as an inversion injury or rolled ankle). Whilst it is often thought that ankle injuries only occur whilst playing sport, they can easily be a result of stepping on uneven ground or just turning awkwardly and rolling your ankle.
Is shoulder pain stopping you doing what you love?
Shoulder pain is an incredibly common condition we see regularly in our clinic. It can be so debilitating and have a huge impact on your daily life – stopping you from doing things you like like playing golf, or tennis, carrying your kids or even taking the dog for a walk. Often it will keep you awake at night with a burning pain down your arm or stop you from reaching into the cupboards above your head.
When dealing with shoulder pain, it is imperative that you have a thorough assessment to ascertain your diagnosis and the correct line of treatment for your shoulder. Our experienced Physiotherapists not only focus on your shoulder joint, but also look at surrounding joints to see if they are impacting on your injury.
Whiplash can be very painful and debilitating and this can be made much worse if its not treated correctly.
It is important that Whiplash injuries are assessed early and thoroughly by a Physiotherapist to ensure you get back to normal as early as possible.
You wake up in the middle of the night with numbness and tingling into you hand and have to shake your hand out to make it feel “normal” again. Mornings are the worst, but throughout the day you can get burning pain into your hand, wrist and forearm. Sometimes you find it hard to hold onto things and drop them on the floor.
