We all want to move as freely as possible and reach our fitness and wellness goals, whatever they may be. And as humans, we’re all built differently and have different versions of what’s ‘normal’ to us.


When something doesn’t feel quite right in the body you’ve always had, it may feel frightening and concerning. Sometimes things like injuries and illnesses can stand in the way of us reaching our goals— but it doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t recoup and recover.


Physiotherapy aims to relieve pain and restore normal movement patterns. At Eastside Physio, our goal is to reduce and eliminate pain, restore muscle and joint function, and improve your overall mobility so you can live happier, healthier, and injury-free.

Our 3 Step Process For Better Results:
1. Accurate Diagnosis
  • 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 step can't be missed. People often tell us they "failed rehab” in the past only to find out previous treatments were not appropriate for the grade of their injury.  

2. Pain Reduction
  • 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.    

3. Tailored Recovery
  • 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

Relieve Pain

Physiotherapy techniques aim to relieve pain by taking your individual body into account, incorporating therapies that are tailored to your specific injury or condition.

Speed Up Recovery

Recovering from an injury or illness can be difficult enough, especially if you’ve also had surgery. Physiotherapy helps speed up your recovery by targeting injured tissue 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.

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 targeted exercises.

Increase Mobility

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

Prevent Injury

Many people engage in physiotherapy as a means to prevent possible injuries in the future.  If injury prevention is important to you Physiotherapy can assist by finding areas of weakness and addressing the issue early by treatment and exercise programming to move more efficiently.
