Physiotherapy

We are qualified to manage and prevent musculo-skeletal conditions using manual therapy, the Mulligan technique and exercise.

Manual Therapy

Joint mobilisation is a localised specific stretching and movement of tight joints.  All physiotherapists are trained and experienced in these techniques.

Manipulative mobilisation is the term used to describe the field of physiotherapy practice which relates to disorders of the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine, neck and back.

 

Physiotherapists who practise in this area have completed post graduate training and are skilled in the assessment, diagnosis and physiotherapy management of musculoskeletal conditions which may involve a high velocity thrust technique to a joint as part of the treatment plan.

Mulligan Technique

This simple yet effective manual approach addresses musculoskeletal disorders with pain free manual joint “repositioning” techniques for restoration of function and abolition of pain.

 

Benefits of mobilisation with movement
 

Mobilisation with movement is a manual therapy approach utilised by physiotherapists specialising in the care of patients with musculo-skeletal pain. Physiotherapists trained in the Mulligan Concept can assist individuals in improving movement restrictions, pain with movement, and functional restrictions. Mulligan practitioners seek to improve the patient’s movement with the application of pain free hands on techniques.

Common Indications for this approach:
 

  • Pain of a non-inflammatory nature

  • Acute pain from injury

  • Loss of motion due to arthritic conditions

  • Post-surgical conditions causing loss of pain free movement, e.g. post scope conditions, spinal surgery

  • Headaches due to neck problems

  • Dizziness associated with neck problems

  • Jaw or Temporomandibular joint pain and movement restrictions

  • Acute or chronic ankle sprains

  • “Tennis elbow” or lateral elbow pain
