Physiotherapy Ashwood

Physiotherapist in Ashwood, VIC

We all want the ability to move without limitations and attain our individual fitness and well-being aspirations, whatever they may be. As humans, we have distinct physical compositions and unique perceptions of what is 'normal' to us.

When something feels amiss in the body you've always been familiar with, it can be alarming and distressing. At times, injuries and illnesses can obstruct our path to achieving our goals, but that doesn't mean recovery is out of reach.

Our Ashwood physiotherapists are committed to easing pain and reinstating your regular movement patterns. At Eastside Physio, our objective is to lessen and eradicate pain, restore muscle and joint functionality, and boost your overall mobility, allowing you to enjoy a happier, healthier, and injury-free existence.

  • A thorough history is taken to establish the cause of your injury.

  • A detailed physical assessment is done to identify the extent (grade) of your injury. 

  • This is really important as we often see people who have failed “rehab” for a condition only to find that previous treatments were not appropriate for the grade of the injury.  

  • Expect to receive hands-on care designed to immediately reduce your pain and speed up the recovery process.

  • The factors contributing to your pain will be identified and you will learn exactly what you should be doing to help speed up your recovery.    

Tailored Recovery Program
  • The exercises prescribed are specific to your injury and your individual needs. 

  • Expect guidance from your treating physio to ensure that you are improving as fast as possible.

  • On completion of your treatment you will  be equipped with the tools and knowledge for self maintenance.

Benefits Of Physiotherapy in Ashwood

Relieve Pain

Techniques used by our Ashwood physios aim to relieve pain by taking your individual body into account and incorporating therapies that are tailored to your specific injury or condition.

Restore Movement

Injuries and conditions may inhibit your movement and make you feel stiff and immobile. Physiotherapy may help to restore movement and function through hands-on techniques and targeted exercises.

Speed Up Recovery

Recovering from an injury or illness can be difficult enough, especially if you’ve also had surgery. Regardless of your situation physiotherapy may help speed up your recovery by targeting injured tissue and working on it to regain function, reduce aches and pains, and strengthen vulnerable areas. 

Build Strength

We need strength to keep us performing at our best, whether that’s playing sport or moving around the house. Physiotherapy may help you to build strength where you need it most, such as the legs, arms, neck, back, and core, decreasing your risk of injuries and helping you to reach your goals.

Increase Mobility

Mobility may be increased through a range hands-on techniques, strengthening and stretching exercises, endurance training, and balance and falls prevention, helping to give you back as much independence as possible.

Prevent Injury

Many people engage in an Ashwood physiotherapist as a means to prevent possible injuries in the future. Whether you’re a senior citizen or a professional athlete, injury prevention is of the utmost importance. Physiotherapy aids in injury prevention by by developing a treatment plan and exercise program based on the identified individual weak points.  

Our Physiotherapy Treatment Process

Our focus is on individually tailored treatment plans that are specific to your needs and goals. No matter your age or ability, we recognise you for the individual you are and we respect and value your opinions as much as you do ours.
