Musculoskeletal / Manipulative Physiotherapy
APA Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists are health professionals with advanced postgraduate training in the assessment and diagnosis of musculoskeletal conditions, particularly neck, back, shoulder pain and headaches. Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists have advanced clinical and practical skills. They are experts in clinical reasoning, manual handling and exercise prescription within an evidence based practice framework. Our physiotherapists use primarily hands-on techniques and the results can be instantaneous.
An APA Sports Physiotherapist is one who has been awarded a postgraduate qualification in this specialised discipline. Select universities throughout Australia offer postgraduate courses in Sports Physiotherapy, which are highly regarded internationally. Frequent changes to the evidence base and the understanding of sports injury and biomechanics see Sports Physiotherapists continually keeping up-to-date with ongoing education and reading.
Pilates Physiotherapy / Clinical Pilates
Clinical Pilates is an emerging specialisation within Physiotherapy. In this discipline, a physiotherapist utilises Pilates equipment and exercises, in addition to manual skills, to treat patients with all manner of injuries, post-surgical rehabilitation, injury prevention, and general fitness and wellbeing.
What will happen when I see a Physiotherapist?
In the initial consultation the physiotherapists will ask for details of current presenting problem and relevant medical history such as trauma, accidents or medications. A thorough physical examination will then be conducted which includes analyzing movements and hands-on assessment of the problem area. Physiotherapists look at the body as a whole and therefore the examination may include an assessment of adjoining areas and joints.
Once a diagnosis is formed, the physiotherapist will work with you to plan the most appropriate treatment for your condition and set realistic goals accordingly. Your physiotherapist will consult with you regarding treatment plan, improvement and modification of the plan to suit you.
Physiotherapist management of your problem involves;
- Assessing your movement and physical condition.
- Analyzing and identifying your problems.
- Developing a treatment program and goals after consultation with you, and where appropriate, with other health care workers.
- Managing the treatment program based on the goals set.
- Evaluating progress, modifying treatment when necessary.
Physiotherapists use a wide range of treatment techniques to assist in the management of injuries and conditions. These may include;
- Joint mobilisation and manipulation
- Massage and soft tissue mobilisation
- Muscle re-education
- Therapeutic exercise
- Airway clearance techniques and breathing exercises
- Advice and training in the use of orthotics, prosthetics and other devices, eg. braces, splints, crutches and walking sticks.
- Physical and electrophysical agents such as; hot packs, ultrasound, interferential, electrical nerve stimulation and biofeedback to relieve pain, reduce swelling, improve joint movement and increase functional abilities.
