Northern Districts Physiotherapy Eastwood services encompass multiple therapies to alleviate pain, treat conditions associated with chronic disease, restore functionality, and rehabilitate injuries. The practice takes a hands-on approach and each treatment and management plan is customized to accommodate the individual. The clinic treats children and adults.
Two of the mainstays of physiotherapy are therapeutic massage and dry needling. The therapies can be used singly or in combination with others to treat multiple conditions and accelerate healing. Both methods increase blood flow, remove toxins and assist the body’s own healing abilities. Pain is relieved and the techniques are especially beneficial when scar tissue is present. The therapies enhance sports performance and are regularly used by professional athletes.
Mobilisation and manual manipulation provide the means to keep the nervous system and soft tissues healthy when patients are unable to fully participate in therapy for any reason. The techniques are effective for training the body in the appropriate ways to move following injuries, surgical interventions, and in chronic disease syndromes.
Exercise is the best way to maintain motion and ease pain, but only when it’s done correctly. Prescription exercise programmes are created for specific needs that accommodate the client’s level of abilities. Modifications are made as required to reflect any changes. It’s effective for rehabilitation, helping to prevent scar tissue and maintaining range of motion following surgical procedures.
Specialized exercise is available to address issues affecting women during and after pregnancy. It strengthens the core and pelvic floor, increases balance and stability, and addresses incontinence problems. The therapeutic exercise eases pain and discomfort that can accompany pregnancy and breastfeeding, and helps women regain their figure. Ultrasound is available to treat mastitis.
Problems in one part of the body often appear in another area. Prescription and custom orthotic devices provide support for the body, eases pain and helps realign the spine.
