Your physiotherapist will take a thorough history related to your injury, followed by a physical assessment, diagnosis and an appropriate individual management plan will be discussed with you. We are focused on your health and well-being and will work with you to achieve your goals as efficiently as possible. We are dedicated to patient centred, evidence based treatment that delivers the best outcome in the shortest possible time. You will receive dedicated one-on-one care throughout your entire treatment session.
A specific and tailored exercise program may be prescribed to target weak or dysfunctional areas.
We offer Pilates group classes, Seniors balance and strength classes as well as Small Group Equipment classes and Individual private exercise/rehabilitation sessions.
Your physio will educate you about your injury and what you can do to prevent and maintain it.
We will happily liaise with all of your health care professionals and we will not hesitate to refer you on to the appropriate practitioner to help get you back on track where necessary.
Taping can be used for injury prevention. Athletic taping has also been shown to reduce the severity in injuries, as well as the occurrence of injury in most sports. Preventative taping may also decrease the prevalence of chronic or overuse injuries in joints such as the ankle or wrist.
Tape is also often applied to manage symptoms of chronic injuries by stabilizing and supporting joints, allowing return to activity, maintaining proper biomechanics, as well as helping to reduce force on affected areas during activity.
If you have a particular sporting event coming up, or any concerns with a particular activity or previous injury, our Physios can tape the affected area (as part of your physio treatment, or without an appointment, for a small fee).
At Annandale Physio we do both sports taping and kinesio taping, depending on your needs.
A 15 minute taping consult can be booked online under the Physiotherapy category .
