Joondalup Physio for Muscle Care

Physiotherapy involves the care and repair of damaged muscles. There are many ways to help heal injured muscle structure. The type of injury will direct the healing process. Sports and occupation injuries benefit from an all-inclusive  therapy clinic.

Manipulative Physiotherapy

This type of therapy involves physical manipulation of injured joints and muscles. Through manipulative physiotherapy, joints and muscles regain normal range of movement. This type of therapy is  best used in addition to exercise and other rehabilitative therapies. A total physiotherapy clinic combines the appropriate therapy and specialists for the fastest recovery.

Sports Physiotherapy

Sporting injuries require specific care to heal and become stronger. Physiotherapy for sporting injuries requires individual care. Many sporting injuries benefit from several therapies. Strength training, massage therapy and hydrotherapy. Therapists tailor all the available methods to meet the needs of the injuries. Sprains and strains are most common injuries for athletes. Repairing the injury is the first, strengthening the  muscles follows in the form of exercise specifically designed to increase the stamina of the sprain or strain.

Graduated Rehabilitation

Teams of therapists develop a  rehabilitation program that will heal the injury and promote strength training to prevent a repeat of the same injury. Muscle injuries that require surgery also require custom rehab. Injuries to the spine, shoulder, wrist, knee, hip or ankle sometimes require surgery. When surgery is performed, the area sustains more damage. These injuries need specialized rehab. A combination of strength training and maintenance training is required for optimal healing.

During the healing and rehab process, ultrasound-imaging track the healing process to insure that the injury is healing as it should. This is especially helpful with back injuries. While the injury is healing, the progress is monitored and rehabilitation adjusted to fit the  needs of the individual patient.

Total Care

Properly trained therapists work with attending physicians for proper care of an  injury requiring surgery. Many forms of therapy will benefit patients with muscle injuries. Exercises including Pilates, gym, hydro and home exercise programs all combine to gain the best possible results.

Preventative care is also included before an injury happens. Training muscles for  strength and endurance prevents injuries. Cognitive, holistic and physical training and strengthening is combined and tailored to the sport or athletic level desired. Focus begins on the larger muscles. The larger muscles in the human body need to be the strongest. By increasing the strength of the major muscle groups, decreases the chance of an injury that would require surgery.

Now is the right time to consult a Joondalup physio to avoid a critical injury later on.

Best ways Ocean Keys Physiotherapy can Help You with Your Back Pain

Ocean Keys Physiotherapy to help your back pain

Back pain is not as simple as having difficulty bending forward but it is a very complex musculoskeletal disorder. It is among the most common complaints of patients across the globe and one of the main reasons why people skip work.

Ocean Keys physiotherapy may help address back pain. If you see a physiotherapist as soon as possible, this may speed up your recovery and help relieve you of symptoms. Physios may offer different treatment methods and modalities to help ease your back pain and teach you ways to avoid it.

The main goal of physiotherapy is to get you back to your normal function. If back pain prevents you from working or from playing any sport, then it will be among your major goals to get back to that level of function.

Physiotherapy

Determine Cause

When you visit a physiotherapist, an evaluation will be done to determine the cause of your back pain. This may range from poor body posture, spinal deformity, lifting objects improperly, overstretching, prolonged standing, even sneezing sometimes causes one to grimace in pain.

Treatment

Physiotherapy has a wide range of treatment options. What will be done will depend on your signs and symptoms. Ocean Keys physiotherapy may use therapeutic exercise to strengthen certain areas of the body to attain mobility and stability.

There are also manual therapy techniques to help relieve pain, improve movements of certain body parts, and to improve blood circulation.

Acupuncture is also a popular mode of treatment for people with back pain. For those who are not familiar, this involves insertion of very fine needles to certain points of the body to reduce inflammation, decrease pain, and basically promote recovery.

Then there are various modalities such as warm compress, ultrasound, or transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation that can be used to ease the pain and relax the muscles around the affected area.

Ocean Keys physiotherapy also make use of aquatherapy, which involves exercise routines while in the water. Aqua or hydrotherapy is among the treatment of choice because it does not subject the joints to a lot of forces compared to exercising on hard surfaces.

Tips and home exercise

Physiotherapists can also give you practical tips so you can adjust well at home and at work while your condition is bothering you. Subtle changes in the environment, ergonomics, and posture might be big factors in making you feel better.

They can also prescribe home exercises that will help alleviate the back pain, help achieve muscle balance, and improve muscle strength for better stability of the spine.

If you are enduring back pain, rest may help but being active may help more. You need to keep moving and continue exercise routines such as swimming or walking.

Do not sit for too long when at work and make sure you take breaks to walk around and stretch a bit.

When picking up objects from the floor, make sure you bend your knees upon approach and not bend your back too much. When lifting heavy objects is inevitable, make sure you use the power of the legs more and keep your posture in check.

It will also help if you keep your diet and weight in check.

MoveWell Physiotherapy is among the most trusted teams of experts when it comes to Ocean Keys physiotherapy. Working with a doctor, its physiotherapists make sure that patients receive the best care possible.
