Pain is one of the most common barriers preventing people from achieving their physical best.

Let's talk about pain

Experiencing pain is one of the most common reasons for seeing a physiotherapist. Pain can be caused by many different things, and the sensation of pain is unique to the individual who is experiencing it. In order to help alleviate pain, it is our job as clinicians to understand what is responsible for causing your pain.

This process of assessing the cause of pain will include a subjective assessment (conversational interview where we as clinicians gather information about your health and medical history) and an objective assessment (a group of physical tests where we assess functional components of movement). We then synthesize the information gathered to determine who best to proceed:

"Our goal is to help you recover from your injury and return to the level of physical function and activity of your choice."

Injuries are a frequent source of functional impairment, and if untreated, can have long-lasting effects. Although injuries can often heal over time, it does not mean that you are automatically able to return to the same level of function as you would have been capable of before the injury.

It is our job as physiotherapists to investigate the cause of the injury, the extent of the damage, and what other body regions may be involved. Treatment for injuries often involves rest in the early stages to create an environment that facilitates optimal healing and mitigates risk of further damage. As time progresses, it is vital to ensure that pain and other symptoms are being reduced, while strength and physical function are being restored.

27% of Australians are affected by chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
