At The Movement Workshop Physiotherapy we utilise hands on manual therapy for injury management. Manual therapy may involve soft tissue massage, joint mobilisation, assisted stretching and muscle energy techniques. We also use Dry Needling. This is the placement of fine gauge solid needles, much like acupuncture needles, into trigger points to relieve muscle tightness and pain.
Pain and stiffness are often a result of incorrect movement patterns. Assessing the way you move will help identify the underlying cause of your symptoms and guide your rehabilitation. We will help optimise your movement, address strength deficits and help you improve your flexibility and mobility.
CLINICAL EXERCISE & PILATES
Our physiotherapists have extensive training and experience in how the body moves. We offer individual and 2:1 group classes for Clinical Exercise and Pilates. You will exercise with an individualised program for your needs. Your program will be adapted and progressed to achieve your best movement possible. The focus of your exercise may be rehabilitation, strength, flexibility, balance and co-ordination. Whatever your needs, we will create a program to help.
Our classes utilise both clinical pilates equipment such as reformer, trap table and wunda chair, and traditional exercise equipment such as mats, balls, weights and bands.
