Hands On Physiotherapy Adelaide

At Core Physiotherapy and Pilates studio we aim to find the most effective way of relieving your pain and symptoms. Often this involves hands on therapy where the Physiotherapist performs techniques directly on the client’s body.

The aims of such techniques are to relieve the symptoms while changing the physical factors that may be leading to the problem.

These techniques may include:

  • Joint mobilisation – gentle and repeated mid to end range stretching of specific spinal and limb joints, aiming to restore normal joint mobility
  • Joint manipulation – localised end range thrust techniques, aiming to push past an abnormal barrier to movement and restore normal range of movement
  • Deep soft tissue massage – from gentle to firm deep soft tissue pressure, aiming to reduce muscle tone, increase blood flow and restore normal movement in muscle tissue in the spine and limbs
  • Trigger point therapy – the use of deep pressure and soft tissue manipulation to treat hyperirritable points in muscles and alter the relative tone and mobility of the affected tissues.
  • Myofascial releases – a technique that works directly on the muscle via soft tissue manipulation or indirectly by stretching of the limbs. The aim is to alter the tone of the muscle and improve circulation and mobility.
  • Dry Needling – using fine needles, trigger points are deactivated in the muscles, producing a change in the tone and mobility of the muscles.
  • Stretching – stretching techniques are often performed by a therapist to improve the overall range of movement, particularly when the client is unable to perform these movements alone.
  • Neural mobilisation/stretching – a structured approach to treating dysfunction arising directly from a nerve. It utilises techniques to safely move dysfunctional nerves in the limbs and improve their mobility.

The selection of techniques varies between clients and is dictated by the nature of the problem and the findings of a thorough clinical assessment.

Of course, this intensive way of working is time-consuming and involves both therapist and client involvement.

Because of our commitment to this way of treating clients, we have made all of our follow up consultation times half an hour long, to allow time for therapists to perform multiple techniques on all affected parts of the body.
