TWC (Website Banner) - Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy helps to restore function and movement in patients affected by injury, illness, or disability of a specific area or of the body as a whole. Physiotherapists are specially trained allied health care professionals that provide in-depth examinations, education & advice, rehabilitation exercises & manual therapy, all tailored to each individuals need. Physiotherapists directly involve patients in their own care, and by taking a holistic approach help them to regain or maintain physical activity, and reduce the risk of injury or illness in the future. Physiotherapy can be helpful in the recovery of physical functions for people of all ages with a wide range of health conditions such as:

  • Musculoskeletal (bones, joints, and soft tissue)
  • Neurological (brain or nervous system)
  • Cardiovascular (heart and circulation)
  • Respiratory (lungs and breathing)

Some of the main approaches include:

Education and Advice

Therefore, giving specific advice in relation to an injury and general advice about ways to improve one’s overall wellbeing are both important parts of the treatment. At The Wellness Centre (Castle Quay), we use one of the world’s best regarded, accurate and advanced software (Complete Anatomy Software & Physiotec) to help our patients visualize and fully understand their condition, their path to recovery and to provide home exercise programs that communicate exercises with stunning videos and step-by-step instructions.

Movement, Tailored Exercises, and Physical Activity Advice

Physiotherapists usually recommend movement and exercise to help eliminate pain and improve mobility and function. This may include:

General Excercise –  Excercises that involve moving the whole body, such as walking, swimming, cycling, Pilates or Yoga classes.

Hydrotherapy Excercises -  Excercises performed in water whcih can help relax and support muscles and joints, while providing resistance to help you gradually get stronger.

Rehabilitation Exercises –  Excercises designed to improve movement & strength in a specific part of the body.

Education - Advice and exercises to help increase or maintain general physical activity, including advice on the importance of keeping active, and how to be active in a safe and effective way.

Your Physiotherapist may also recommend exercises that can be done on a continual basis to help manage pain in the long term or to reduce the risk of re-injury / relapse of a condition.

At The Wellness Centre (Castle Quay) we use clinically proven exercise and activity techniques such as Kinetic Control Training, Movement Therapy Training and TheraBand Training to help our patients achieve the best possible outcome of their treatment program.

Manual Therapy

Physiotherapists provide various ‘hands-on’ treatments to help relieve pain and stiffness, and to encourage better movement of the body. Many Physiotherapists also use treatment techniques such as Acupuncture, Taping or Ultrasound therapy. These manual therapy techniques can be used on their own or in combination to help:

  • relieve pain and stiffness
  • improve blood circulation
  • improve lymphatic drainage and reduced fluid retention
  • improve the movement of different parts of the body
  • promote relaxation

Waiting lists for public Physiotherapy can often be very long, and as such many patients choose to seek Private Care instead. In most cases, you can approach a private Physiotherapist directly without a referral from your doctor. When choosing a private Physiotherapist is it important to make sure that he or she is registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) and is a fully qualified member of a recognized professional body, such as the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).
