At Physio Smart, we pride ourselves on treating the widest range of musculoskeletal injuries.
Interestingly, we have come to recognise that as a team, we have a few 'Areas of Focus' that have organically emerged over time from seeing numerous patients presenting with similar symptoms.
May be a result of stiffness in the hips, poor shoulder motion, an upper neck rotation problem, the inability to do a push up, leaning forward when lunging.
May be due to weakness in shoulder strength, a twisted rib, running on a stiff ankle, weakness through the core/pelvis, an unresolved motor control issue from a whiplash injury many years ago.
Knee pain/ITB syndrome
Could be related to a weakness in the hip, unresolved ankle injury, a knee turning inwards when squatting, a balance issue on the opposite leg.
Could be related to spinal movement limitations, hip rotation issues, restriction of a hip flexor muscle on the opposite side, poor balance when leaning backwards.
Tennis elbow or carpel tunnel
Could be due to poor mid back rotation movements, weakness of the neck muscles, a lack of shoulder strength, poor posture when sitting at the desk or computer.
May be caused by a stiffness through the front of the ankle, a restriction through the lower back, the inability to touch your toes, foot turning out when squatting.
Our approach to Physiotherapy means that we don't view "parts" of the body in isolation, rather we consider the whole body as a system. In this way, we can identify the root cause of an injury or pain response by considering all possible contributing factors. This describes the importance of having a full-body functional assessment. Our expertise in assessing movement patterns combined with our hands-on treatment skills are key to finding a solution to your unique situation.
