Back and Neck pain
Back and neck pain can be debilitating and get in the way of your daily life. These pains can be results of abnormal loading patterns or injury to the following structures: intervertebral discs, facet joints, muscles, or ligaments around the spine. After a comprehensive assessment we will be able to diagnose the source of your pain and to best treat you.
Orthopaedic injuries & Post-operative rehab
Physiotherapy following both the conservative or surgical management of a fracture, dislocation, or after a joint replacement to help reduce the acute pain and swelling and facilitate your rehabilitation to normal function. Post-operative rehabilitation after ligament repairs like an ACL.
Whether you are a professional, secondary or tertiary school athlete or a weekend warrior, we will help you achieve your goals. Sports injuries can be debilitating despite their severity because you may have to take a period of rest from what you enjoy doing most. We believe in getting you back in action under a safe but effective timeline.
Injury can be to your ligaments, tendons, or muscles due to a fall, accident, overuse, or training. These include but are not limited to, golfers’ elbow, runners’ knee, ACL tears, other knee ligament sprains or tears, ankle sprains as well as physiotherapy for post-operative ligament repairs.
We have experience with managing cyclist and runners especially those that are involved in the annual events of 94.7 Cycle Challenge, Argus, Two oceans and the Comrades Marathon
We manage all injuries with hand on therapy followed by a specific rehabilitative exercise program to ensure effective recovery and return to sport.
Pelvic & Women’s Health
Pelvic floor dysfunction, includes but is not limited to bladder conditions such as urinary incontinence, overactive bladders, painful bladder syndrome, bowel problems like haemorrhoids, pelvic organ prolapses as well as painful intercourse. Not many people are aware that physiotherapy can assist in the management of a number of these and other woman’s health conditions.
Woman’s health physiotherapy is aimed at helping women through several treatment techniques to improve the function of the pelvic floor, helping them gain more confidence and control. This also include the management of pregnant women and common pains they suffer with. These can include pregnancy related lower back pain, sacroiliac joint (SIJ) dysfunction, pubic symphysis pain to name a few. Postpartum difficulties include, weak abdominal strength due to diastases recti, the management of tight and painful scars from episiotomy or caesarean sections as well as common breastfeeding problems like engorgement and cracked nipples.
Painful intercourse (dyspareunia) is not normal. If you are not able to use a tampon or find it extremely painful to use one; these are common signs that the pelvic floor may be too tight. We can help you. Poonam works alongside Dr. Elna Rudolph and her team at My Sexual Health to help you with these problems.
We offer certain physiotherapy services at your home if you live within a 7km radius from the practice. Services are reserved for the elderly or those with physical impairments and limitations that cannot access our rooms. Kindly contact us if you would like to discuss your unique situation.
Dry needling is an effective technique used for the treatment of muscular spasm and myofascial pain. It can used in many areas of the body. This is a technique of western medicine and is not a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The internal organs (visceral system) has an influence on the muscles, joints, tendons and influence how we experience pain. Gentle mobilisation of the visceral support system can be used as a way of treating musculoskeletal problems effectively.
