OUR SERVICES

At Good Physio we provide the highest level of care, utilising an ever-evolving skill-set in physiotherapy, acupuncture and exercise therapy. With years of experience in complex injuries and working within multi-disciplinary teams, Good Physio at Glenelg utilises a ‘best of’ mix of therapies individualised for your specific needs.

 

PHYSIOTHERAPY


There has been a definite shift in what constitutes ‘good’ physiotherapy.  An emphasis on one-to-one patient care, with time dedicated for the patient to be educated and understand the goals and outcomes has replaced the physio that are rushed with their consultation times - we have tried to structure our range appointment times accordingly to suit everyone.

At Good Physio, our goal is to use our knowledge and skillset to help you meet your goal – the way this happens is very individual.

In general, this will involve both patient and therapist having a thorough understanding of your issue, how it affects your life and what is needed to manage it - both in the short term and the long term.

We assess and measure movement and strength, amongst other key assessments prior to carrying out directed and specific manual therapy.

Finally, we provide guidance to optimise your physical capabilities - whether that is using our in-house rehab equipment (reformer and resistance), guiding further rehab through your own coaches or trainers, or finding appropriate lifestyle changes. We will play our role in that part of your journey.

 

INJURY PREVENTION


Injury prevention is the next frontier in physiotherapy. Being able to treat injuries well and get people back to what they need to be doing in the quickest time is extremely rewarding. But playing a role in preventing the injury in the first place is even better.

Having worked with numerous elite athletes at a number of sporting clubs, we have been able to put together an in-depth pre-season screening aimed at decreasing the risk of injury while also improving performance.

DRY NEEDLING & ACUPUNCTURE


Dry needling is a skill that is steadily increasing within the physiotherapy industry. It involves inserting a thin, stainless steel into tight muscle or fascia. It is an extremely valuable treatment adjunct and has clinically been shown to be beneficial for the treatment of many musculoskeletal injuries (headaches, shoulder pain, neck pain, headaches, shin pain, acute muscle strains to name a few).

With the clinical success of dry needling, it was a logical step for Tristan to further his knowledge by completing a Masters in Acupuncture (RMIT) making him an industry leader in both Acupuncture and dry needling and to extend his scope of practice to include conditions like: hay fever, sinusitis, irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive issues, women’s health issues (PMS, menopause, pregnancy), insomnia and anxiety.

This extra depth of knowledge has influenced Tristan’s clinical practice and truly sets him apart from many other clinics.

 

NORMATEC RECOVERY


NormaTec recovery boots are a state of the art system that uses compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilise fluid and speed recovery.

It offers a unique blend of compression and kneading that has seen the system used worldwide to aid in the recovery of elite level athletes. We find it to be a cost-effective approach to week to week recovery throughout the season or as you train for an endurance event.

We offer casual visits or blocks of 5, 10 or 20 that are transferrable to friends and teammates.

REFORMER PILATES


As a progression in your injury rehab, or as a means to stay fit and strong to prevent injury - we offer reformer pilates within the clinic.

We devise individualised programs depending on your needs and goals and guide you through each exercise until you feel confident at which you can utilise our equipment independently, join a reformer class at one of our neighbouring pilates studios, or both!

Reformer pilates has been utilised in many ways from the elite sporting population to motor-accident rehab and recovery.

If you would like to know how reformer pilates can benefit you, ask your physiotherapist at your next visit.
