Phyt Physiotherapy with Melissa
Phyt Physiotherapy operates out of Trigg Chiropractic rooms, and prides itself on providing quality one-on-one consultations with a highly trained, experienced physiotherapist. We use the latest evidence-based joint mobilisations, manipulations, soft/deep tissue massage, dry needling techniques, muscle re-education, clinical pilates and supervised gym programs. We will guide you from initial injury and retrain your postural and stabilizing muscles of the ‘core’ to allow full return to previous pain-free capacity.
What we treat:
- Lower back pain, mid back pain and neck pain whether it be related to sporting injury or the ‘office workers posture’ for example.
- Overuse injuries such as Tennis Elbow, Achilles tendinopathy etc…
- Sporting injuries.
- Joint pain and arthritis.
- Pre-operative strengthening of the stabilizing muscles to speed up post-op recovery.
- Post-operative recovery of mobility and strength.
- Nerve pain such as ‘sciatic’ leg pain.
- Shoulder/rotator cuff pain and arm pain.
What we use supervised gym programs and clinical pilates for:
- Strengthening the ‘core’ which includes the deep stomach muscles, deep back extensors and the gluteal stabilisers. A strong ‘core’ supports the spine to decrease the chance of straining the back muscles or discs resulting in back pain. This is important in rehabilitating a back injury as well as preventing a back injury from occurring in the first place. A stable core creates a solid foundation for the remaining joints in the body to move on, therefore retraining the core musculature is also a vital aspect in rehabilitation of peripheral joint injuries.
- Rehabilitation of sporting injuries including ankle sprains, muscular strains and post-operatively or non-operatively managed ACL injuries for example. The program will be tailored to incorporate the specific movement patterns of your sport so that you can return to full pre-injury function.
- Managing pain associated with arthritis and osteoporosis and improving bone density through weight-bearing exercise.
