Physiotherapy is about restoring and maintaining functional movement, reducing pain and promoting health in individuals.
At Physiodynamics, we treat a wide array of conditions including:
- Spinal pain and injuries (e.g. disc prolapse)
- Sports injuries (e.g. ligament tears)
- Fractures (e.g. broken arm)
- Musculoskeletal problems (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome)
- Post-surgical rehabilitation (e.g. following a knee replacement)
- Biomechanical problems (e.g. “flat feet”)
- Arthritic conditions (e.g. osteoarthritis)
- Neurological disorders and diseases (e.g. stroke)
- Cardiothoracic conditions (e.g. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorders)
- Paediatric conditions (e.g. cerebral palsy)

Physiotherapists are extensively trained in manual therapy which means we are “hands on” with our patients. This may include massage and joint mobilisation or manipulation, as well as muscle stretching to relieve pain or regain function.
To complement our manual skills, we sometimes make use of different modalities to reduce pain and inflammation including hot packs, ice, TENS, E-stim, ultrasound and laser treatment. Acupuncture and trigger point therapy is also widely practiced by physiotherapists.
Exercise prescription goes hand in hand with manual therapy. It’s a set of exercises your physio will ask you to do at home that goes a long way to resolve the pain, speed up the recovery and assist with prevention of future injury.
If you have any questions, please give us a call or make an appointment.
