Physiotherapy, Exercise prescription and Rehabilitation Services provided by caring therapists at BodyMotion in Mitcham



Physiotherapy is a form of “hands-on” manual therapy used to aid in a rapid recovery and rehabilitation from all forms of injury, sports related or otherwise. In addition Physiotherapy can be used to maintain your body in its optimum state which can enhance your performance during sport and also aid in reducing the chances of and even preventing a re-injury.

Physiotherapy treatment is usually quite gentle and is very safe.
Techniques commonly used by Physiotherapists are: Joint mobilisation, soft tissue massage, trigger point therapy, ultrasound, TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation ), combined with home based stretching and strengthening exercises. All of the above techniques allow your joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons to function better.

The Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) describes Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy as follows:

If you have neck, back, joint or muscle pain then obviously you want the fastest – and longest lasting – relief possible.  That’s why musculoskeletal physiotherapy is your best option.

Physiotherapists are qualified health professionals who specialise in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, particularly neck and back pain.  They employ the most advanced techniques and their results are sometimes instantaneous.

Apart from providing rapid an effective drug-free pain relief, there are a number of important ways that musculoskeletal physiotherapy can help.  Physiotherapists use advanced clinical assessment and diagnosis methods, and have been trained in a broader range of treatment techniques than many other health professionals.  As a result, they are in the best position to improve your mobility, co-ordination, strength and overall fitness level.
