Physiotherapy Box Hill
Physiotherapy aims to relieve pain and restore normal movement patterns. The goal for our box hill physios 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. During your treatment you will have time to ask questions and involve yourself in the treatment process. At Eastside we work with you to plan the route to recovery and build strategies to get you back to good health.
OUR 3 STEP PROCESS FOR BETTER RESULTS:
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.

Benefits of Physiotherapy
Alleviation of discomfort
One of the foremost advantages of consulting a physiotherapist is the reduction of pain. Through various methods, such as manual therapy, targeted exercises, and techniques like ultrasound or heat therapy, physiotherapists can minimise inflammation and discomfort in affected regions, providing relief and enhancing the patient's overall well-being.
Restoration of movement and increased flexibility
Physiotherapists evaluate and identify movement restrictions in patients and develop bespoke treatment plans to address these concerns. By employing specific exercises and stretching routines, they help patients regain their range of motion, improve flexibility, and lower the likelihood of future injuries.
Boosted strength and equilibrium
Physiotherapy interventions frequently encompass strength-enhancing exercises and balance training. These activities not only aid in recovery but also assist patients in maintaining stability, optimising muscle function, and preventing falls, particularly among older individuals or those with balance issues.
Expedited recovery from injury or surgical procedures
Physiotherapists collaborate with patients to create personalised rehabilitation programmes aimed at hastening recovery. They offer advice on suitable exercises, track progress, and modify treatments as necessary to ensure patients can safely and efficiently resume their everyday activities or athletic pursuits.
Avoidance of recurring problems and long-lasting health advantages
Physiotherapy plays a crucial role in pinpointing and addressing the underlying causes of pain and movement restrictions. By teaching patients about correct body mechanics, posture, and ergonomics, physiotherapists enable them to take charge of their health and avert future complications. Furthermore, they provide guidance on incorporating healthy habits and exercise regimens into daily life, leading to enduring wellness and overall health enhancement.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the difference between physiotherapy and massage?
Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that assesses, diagnoses, treats and works to prevent human health problems by physically manipulating the body. Massage is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscles, connective tissue, tendons) to enhance a person's health and well-being.
Is Physiotherapy covered by private health?
Yes, physiotherapy is often covered by insurance. Massage, on the other hand, is not as typically covered by insurance.
Physiotherapy has many benefits, but some of the key benefits include: improved movement and function, relief from pain and tension, prevention of injury and improved overall wellbeing.
Frequency of sessions is completely dependent on your condition and individual situation. Factors like your genetics, occupation, and hobbies or goals can influence what is required for successful treatment. Some conditions initially require more frequent sessions such as weekly treatment, and some need a once off treatment. Our therapist will explain your recommended treatment plan at the start of the process so you are fully aware of what is required and you can be involved in the decision process.
You should wear loose, comfortable clothing to your physiotherapy session. This will allow your therapist to access the areas they need to treat.
