Physiotherapy

Our physiotherapy program starts with a comprehensive assessment. Based on clinical evaluation and consultation with each client the physiotherapy treatment may use a combination of hands-on treatment techniques, such as joint mobilisation or soft tissue manipulation, exercise prescription, taping and retraining principles to maximise comfort, movement and the prevention of further issues.

 

        Physiotherapy is an evidence-based health profession, meaning that we 

          use the best available and up to date evidence to treat, educate and assist in your journey to recovery.

     Our overall aim is to facilitate the achievement of your goals and to reach performance levels where physiotherapy is no longer needed.

Pregnancy and Physiotherapy

The female body goes through extensive change in shape, posture and size during the 9 months of pregnancy. Due to the large changes, some women may experience pain and discomfort.

The pelvic floor muscles are stressed during pregnancy, even if you have a caesarean birth. Your physio can assist you with pelvic floor and core strength exercises to help prepare your body for pregnancy and help prevent incontinence during and after pregnancy.

At Core Performance Physio, we treat women pre and post natal for the following conditions:

Pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain
Symphysis pubis dysfunction
Pelvic floor dysfunction
Lower back pain and sciatica
Neck and thoracic/rib pain
Carpal tunnel
De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis
Rectus diastasis (abdominal separation)
Gestational diabetes
Postnatal recovery and return to exercise

Vertigo & Dizziness

Dizziness is often caused by illnesses that affect the inner ear, including benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), migraine and inflammation of the inner ear balance apparatus (called vestibular neuritis). Dizziness may also be caused by low blood pressure, some heart problems (such as cardiac arrhythmias), and anxiety disorders such as panic attacks or (uncommonly) by hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar).

Symptoms of Vertigo

A sensation of movement (including spinning), either of yourself or the external environment

  • Unsteadiness, including finding it difficult to walk in a straight line

  • Light-headedness

  • Feeling ‘faint’

  • Further symptoms that may accompany dizziness include:

  • Headache

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Ringing or other sounds in the ears (tinnitus)

  • Difficulty hearing

  • Staggering gait and loss of coordination (ataxia)

  • Unusual eye movements, such as flitting of the eyes (nystagmus)

  • Finding it difficult to see clearly when moving, for example, reading a sign while walking or driving

 

Inside the inner ear is a series of canals filled with fluid. These canals are oriented at different angles, and as the head moves, the movement of the fluid inside these canals tells the brain how far, how fast and in what direction the head is moving. This information is then used by the brain to move the eyes an equal and opposite amount, so that the image that is ‘seen’ by the eyes does not blur and remains clear.

What causes dizziness & vertigo?

Disorders of the inner ear account for about half of all cases of persistent (ongoing) dizziness. Disorders include Meniere’s disease, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) and vestibular neuritis.

Your doctor will run some tests if you are suffering from vertigo (medical history, physical examination, blood pressure check, MRI scan in extreme cases), but may send you to a physiotherapist if BPPV is suspected.

If you suffer from BPPV your Core Performance Physiotherapist can treat and manage this condition. Treatment will involve Canalith positioning procedures, which are a special set of exercises designed to remove inner ear ‘crystals’ in BPPV. You will also be given advice on self-management to prevent recurrence of the condition.
