Kwinana Physiotherapy Services

Kwinana Physiotherapy provides comprehensive services tailored to individual patient needs.

Physiotherapy Consultation

Each physiotherapy consultation is tailored to individual patient needs, but will generally follow along these lines:

  • A thorough assessment to identify the cause(s) of your condition, and to determine your goals for physiotherapy treatment
  • Appropriate hands-on treatment
  • Exercise prescription first aimed at improving your condition, and then at maintaining good health and future injury prevention
  • Education and advice on the cause(s) of your condition, and how best to modify your sport/work/lifestyle as necessary

At Kwinana Physiotherapy, we use a variety of hands-on manual therapy techniques and other modalities to help relieve acute pain and get you moving again.

Our therapists will determine the appropriate techniques for you, after a thorough assessment and discussion with you about your treatment goals.

Joint mobilisations are specific joint techniques performed by trained physiotherapists to restore or attain full pain-free range of motion to a joint. Manipulations are a more high velocity technique (think ‘cracking’ a joint), with the same goal. Whilst well trained in these at university, physiotherapists generally use high velocity manipulation much less frequently these days.

There are many variations of joint mobilisation techniques which include gentle and pain-free options, to help you regain full pain-free range of motion.

Dry needling is a technique for the treatment of muscular pain and tightness.

The treatment involves inserting a very thin (around .25-.3mm thick) acupuncture needle into a muscle’s trigger points/tender spots without injecting a substance (hence the term ‘dry’).

Western anatomical and neurophysiological principles are the basis of dry needling. It should not be confused with the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) technique of acupuncture, although we do utilise the same fine filament needles.

Taping and bracing is generally used to restrict the range of motion an injured joint, muscle or ligament to provide stability, allow adequate healing and prevent re-injury.

Taping or bracing may also be used during sport or other activities to help facilitate a return to normal activity whilst reducing pain or dysfunction.

It is vitally important that you understand the cause(s) of your pain or injury and the changes or modifications you can make in daily life to improve and get back to your best. Our physiotherapists provide thorough education and advice in plain and easy to understand language to ensure you know exactly what to do to achieve your goals.

Our Women’s Health Physiotherapists are trained in using real time ultrasound imaging to visualise pelvic floor muscles, assess their function and help retrain strength and stability.

An Ergonomic Assessment involves the evaluation of a workstation and the physical environment, and its interaction with the employee.

Kwinana Physiotherapy is experienced in conducting these assessments as either a preventative measure or to accommodate injured or ill employees return to work.

Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE) are a series of standardised tests used to assess a worker’s physical ability in completing a range of tasks.

These tasks are usually tailored to a specific occupation and its relevant workplace demands.

A Job Task Analysis (JTA) consists of a series of assessments based on a comprehensive analysis of inherent physical demands within any given occupation.

JTA’s may then be used to develop specific screening tools for job roles within a Company, for example, Pre-Employment Functional Capacity Evaluations.

Manual Handling Injuries (MHI) result in more lost time than any other type of injury (70% of all long-term Workcover claims are due to MHI). Effective Manual Handling Training significantly reduces the risk of these injuries occurring.

Kwinana Physiotherapy provides a wide variety of Manual Handling Training tailored to various occupations within Western Australia, in line with the National Standards relevant to your Industry.

Physiotherapists are skilled in injury assessment, treatment, ongoing management, and prevention.

Kwinana Physiotherapy provides On-Site Physiotherapy services to corporate organisations who wish to minimise their incidence of Workers Compensation Claims and lost time due to injury (LTI), whilst simultaneously improving the health and wellbeing of their workforce.

Pre-Employment Fitness screenings are used to determine a prospective Employee’s ability to perform the inherent physical tasks necessary in a given job.

They are often used in conjunction with Medical and Psychological Screenings to provide an overall picture of an individual’s health and suitability for employment.
