What we do
Is pain hampering your lifestyle? Do you struggle with neck, back or joint pain? Is a new or long-standing injury inhibiting your exercise goals?
Deep South Physiotherapy is there to help. We offer in-depth analysis of the causes and nature of your sport or orthopaedic injuries, and provide cost effective treatment options.
Some of the treatment modalities offered includes:
A thorough assessment is necessary for two reasons. In the first place it is important to gain clarity on the sort of injury causing your pain. In the second place, with a complex system like the human body, detailed and systematic assessment of the underlying causes (like biomechanics) are crucial in treatment and prevention of further injuries.
Depending on the type of injury, manual therapy on the applicable joints are important. Manual therapy decreases pain, increases the speed of recovery, restores range of movement of the joints and improves movement of the whole kinetic chain of the applicable limbs.
Soft tissue therapy
Depending on the injury, soft tissue mobilisation is important to decrease pain, speed up recovery and improve range of movement of the limbs. Soft tissue mobilisation is especially important with spasm and stiffness.
Exercise therapy is not just important for those who want an active lifestyle, but for anyone who has pain and injuries. Exercise therapy improves pain, encourages movement and function, and helps the body to heal in such a way that the risk of future injuries decreases.
