PHYSIOTHERAPY

MANUAL THERAPY

Physiotherapists utilise manual therapy (manipulative therapy) to aid in reducing musculoskeletal pain by manipulating and mobilising muscles and joints. When a physiotherapist passively moves a joint, they are attempting to influence a physiological effect upon the central nervous system by stimulating mechanoreceptors in joints and muscles. Desirable outcomes may include the reduction of pain, increasing range of motion, facilitating movement and improving overall function.

The physiotherapists at Feelfit Physiotherapy are all highly trained in manual therapy. We offer “hands-on” manual therapy to all our patients.

MANIPULATION

Manipulation is a short, high velocity movement of a joint often associated with a click or popping sound. It can relieve pain and spasm as the joint is unlocked. The technique is only performed with the consent of the patient. Safety testing is a standard protocol prior the administrating the manipulation. Our trained physiotherapists will always discuss the use and benefits of manipulation prior to treatment.

SOFT TISSUE TECHNIQUES

We offer the following soft tissue treatments at Feelfit Physiotherapy:

  • Remedial massage
  • Deep tissue Frictions- firm high intensity massage over a small area of the the tight tissues
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Myofascial release- firm pressure to loosen tight muscles.

TRACTION

Our physiotherapists often use manual traction and also mechanical traction of the neck and lower back to relieve pain, particularly nerve pain.

The mechanical traction device is applied with the patient lying down and it gently opens up the joint space in a constant or intermittent way. It can provide relief of sciatica and nerve pain in the arm.

FINCH THERAPY

A non-invasive soft tissue muscle therapy that promotes optimal pelvis and spinal alignment without direct manipulation or mobilisation of the joints. It involves gentle exercises and muscle releases to restore normal pelvic alignment.

STRETCHING

We perform stretches on tight muscles and tendon structures. Common stretching techniques include sustained stretches and contract /relax stretches. These stretching techniques are commonly helpful for neck muscles, hamstrings, calves, gluteals, and hip flexors .

Foam rollers and spikey balls are also used to stretch tight tendons. We sell those at Feelfit Physiotherapy.
