HEAD AND CERVICAL SPINE

Our exercise physiologists address a range of head and cervical issues, including pain, discomfort, and conditions such as:

  • Osteoarthritis: While there is no cure, exercise physiology can help alleviate symptoms, improve function, and manage the condition effectively through tailored exercise plans.

  • Tinnitus: In some cases, tinnitus may be linked to musculoskeletal problems that can benefit from targeted exercise physiology treatment.

UPPER LIMB (ELBOW, SHOULDER, WRIST, HAND)

We provide treatment for all major upper limb joints and muscle groups, from injury recovery to pain relief:

  • Rotator Cuff/Shoulder: Exercise physiology can enhance range of motion and strength in cases of tendon or muscle damage in the shoulder/rotator cuff area.

  • Osteoarthritis: Exercise physiology can effectively manage OA-related pain and discomfort in the lumbar and pelvic regions.

  • Degeneration: Our therapy can provide relief from pain and slow the progressive weakening or wasting of muscles due to degeneration.

  • Pelvic Floor Deficiency: Safe exercise programs can enhance muscle control in the pelvic floor region for this relatively common condition.

COMMON MUSCULOSKELETAL CONDITIONS

OSTEOARTHRITIS (OA)

Osteoarthritis (OA) OA is a prevalent chronic joint condition affecting thousands of Australians. While it can impact any joint, it predominantly affects the knees, neck, lower back, fingers, and hips. Commonly found in individuals aged 65 and older, OA affects the lumbar & pelvis, lower limbs, upper limbs, head, and spine.

 

Typical OA symptoms include pain, swelling, and stiffness. Though no scientifically proven cure exists, the condition can be managed through surgery, weight management, and physical activities. Our expert physiologists can develop a personalised exercise plan to help manage your specific condition.

TINNITUS

Tinnitus is characterised by noises or ringing in the ear and is considered a symptom rather than a disease. The intensity varies among patients, with some experiencing high-frequency ringing sounds while others hear sizzling-like noises. Common causes include past head injuries, drug history, eardrum rupture, stress, and disease.

 

Though tinnitus affects people of all ages, it is most prevalent among the elderly, and severity increases with age. Diagnosis depends on the symptoms, and while no scientifically proven treatment exists, various methods can alleviate the sounds. Our professional physicians can help you manage the condition by designing a customised exercise plan and solution chart to alleviate symptoms.

DEGENERATION

Degeneration is a chronic musculoskeletal disorder associated with tissue changes that reduce functionality. It can lead to various health complications, such as vision loss and Alzheimer's disease. This disorder causes progressive deterioration of nerve cells, resulting in cell death and muscle weakening. Though it affects people of all ages, it is more common in older adults.

Degeneration is diagnosed by decreased functionality in certain organs, such as hearing or vision loss due to weakened muscles. Although no scientifically proven treatment exists, we can help manage the condition and restore weakened muscles to their maximum potential functionality. Our professional physiologists will guide you through the degeneration management program.

JOINT DISORDERS

Common joint disorders affect the elbow, wrists, knees, and rotator cuff/shoulder. These conditions often result from damaged tendons, muscle injuries, or other health issues and can be categorised as muscle strains and tears. They typically affect athletes, such as golfers and tennis players, and the elderly.

 

The primary diagnosis involves pain in the affected areas, and physical therapy is the best treatment alternative. Visit us for an exceptional experience and noticeable improvement in your movement.

PELVIC FLOOR DEFICIENCY​

A common condition affecting many Australian women, with nearly half experiencing it at some point in their lives. Pelvic floor deficiency occurs when the pelvic muscles are weak or tight and is most prevalent in women aged 65 and above.

 

Pelvic floor deficiency is diagnosed by pain around the pelvic area, particularly during movement or sitting. Though there is no scientifically proven treatment, surgery and vitamin D supplements have shown improvement. Pelvic floor physical therapy is the best alternative, and we can help develop exercise programs to manage and improve your condition.
