Physiotherapy

 

The latest services in physiotherapy and rehabilitation programs are available to support your joint health, rehabilitation and sports injuries to keep you moving.

“The introduction of a physiotherapist to InMotion is the next phase in our holistic approach to orthopaedics. It is my belief that this more holistic approach to orthopaedics will optimise outcomes for patients.”

Dr Damian Smith

Recovery from surgery and sports injuries

Physiotherapy reduces joint pain and stiffness, improves movement and speeds up the healing process after joint surgery. We have combined orthopaedic surgery and physiotherapy to offer our patients a more integrated recovery plan that will be optimised to suit individual patient needs with direct communication between surgeon and physiotherapist.

Arthritis

There is extensive evidence that physiotherapy and targeted exercise programs can help to manage the symptoms of arthritis and improve mobility and wellbeing. It has also been shown to have benefits in preconditioning for surgery with better early outcomes during recovery.

Sports injury treatment

If a sports injury is assessed early, it can significantly reduce the time it will take for the injury to recover.

We work with you to make an accurate diagnosis of the specific injury and set the course to recovery with the ability to explore options with a surgeon if necessary and without needing to explain your situation to them.

Prevention programs

It is possible to work with a physiotherapist to prevent sports injuries through adaptation and training intervention to ensure optimal function. Programs can be developed to suit the specific needs of a patient.
