Musculoskeletal & Injury Management Physiotherapy in Kalgoorlie
Our musculoskeletal physiotherapists are experts at enhancing and restoring function for people suffering from medical problems or other health-related conditions, illnesses, or injuries. We are able to diagnose and treat individuals of all ages.
Musculoskeletal physiotherapy utilises detailed anatomic, physiological and pathological knowledge to form a diagnosis of the impacted structures. Our team of therapists are expertly and extensively trained in musculoskeletal physiotherapy. We employ the most up-to-date evidence in both assessment techniques as well as the treatment/management options for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions.
The most common reason people see physiotherapists is for treatment of pain or injury. Some common conditions include: back pain, arthritis, stiff joints or muscles, muscle sprains and joint sprains, arthritic and degenerative conditions, nerve pain or pinched nerves, overuse injuries. As a general rule of thumb, if you have an ache, pain or limitation in your body our team of physios will be able to help.
When you come in for treatment our physiotherapists will take detailed history of your issues and then conduct a thorough physical assessment that looks at all relevant systems, such as joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons and your nervous system. We will also identify the factors that may have caused and aggravated your condition, such as postural, work and lifestyle habits. on your history, the outcome of the tests and your specific goals, your therapist will develop a personalised treatment and management plan.
Musculoskeletal physiotherapy employs a wide variety of techniques to ensure we can get your muscles and joints working to their full potential, while also reducing pain and stiffness to optimize the healing process. This is often a combination of hands-on treatment (i.e. joint mobilisation and manipulation), exercises (i.e. stretching, strengthening) and pain management techniques (i.e. massage, dry needling). We will also discuss prevention and management strategies so that you can keep doing the things you love and minimise the need for intervention.
Goldfields Physio also offers specialist physiotherapy consultations with a regularly visiting Specialist Physiotherapist. We believe this is an important service to offer as some conditions are complex and chronic in nature and conventional interventions have failed or had limited effect.
