Good physiotherapy requires a deep understanding of your problems and listening to your goals. Identifying the cause(s) of your problem and its effects through careful assessment is crucial in how we can then set goals and plan your treatment.
The most beneficial component of physiotherapy is getting the right education. This includes understanding what you should and shouldn’t do. Additionally, by understanding the way the body works and how your problem has developed we can educate you on appropriate prevention strategies.
Including soft tissue releases, trigger point therapy, joint mobilization, dry needling, joint manipulations, nerve sliders, stretches, etc. This is designed to improve the way you move and the way you feel.
We feel this is the cornerstone of physiotherapy and we design exercise programs to get your body moving the way it should, and then training it to keep it that way. This can include muscle activation which is great to assist healing and pain relief from day one of the injury.
Muscle control exercises to get muscles working how they should. Strengthening, Hypertrophy (muscle building) and power training to make sure your body can cope with the demands you want to place on it and prevent injury happening again.
The name Allied Physiotherapy arrived out of a recognition that people would like to see their physiotherapist as someone with the right expertise that is able to sit in their corner with them as one of their committed allies, through whatever hiccups they encounter along their health journey. This may be as simple as the occasional recommendation to point them in the right direction, or an intensive and extensive rehabilitation program.
