Welcome to Eastwood Physiotherapy Clinic, where our primary commitment lies in assisting you on the journey to recovery from workplace injuries. Our expertise is rooted in a blend of evidence-based, comprehensive, and individualized care designed to optimize your rehabilitation process. Our team of dedicated and certified professionals offers a wide range of techniques, including Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS), Therapeutic Massage Therapy, Active Release Therapy (ART), and more.
Identifying and Addressing Work Injuries: The Eastwood Approach
At Eastwood Physiotherapy Clinic, we understand that the first step to effective rehabilitation is an accurate identification and thorough understanding of your work-related injury. Our in-depth, multi-faceted assessment process ensures that we comprehend the extent of your injury, pain levels, range of movement, and overall physical capabilities.
Our experts conduct a detailed examination, including a complete medical history, physical evaluation, and functional assessment. This comprehensive examination includes an in-depth analysis of your posture, gait, muscle strength, joint mobility, and neurological functions. Through this, we can determine the cause of your symptoms, identify the specific areas of dysfunction, and devise a treatment plan to address your unique needs. The treatment plan may consist of the following techniques:
Common Causes of Work Injuries
Active Release Therapy (ART)
ART is an innovative movement-based massage technique used to treat problems with muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and nerves resulting from repetitive strain. Its application in work injury physiotherapy focuses on relieving tissue tension and promoting optimum function, instrumental in conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome and other overuse injuries.
Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS)
Our specialists employ Intramuscular Stimulation to provide relief for injuries stemming from overexertion or poor posture. This approach specifically targets contracted muscles, using fine needles to release tension deep within the muscle. The result is reduced chronic pain and restoration of natural muscle length and function.
Therapeutic Massage Therapy & Deep Tissue Massage
Overuse or strain injuries are common in the workplace, leading to muscle tension and pain. Our Therapeutic Massage Therapy aims to alleviate musculoskeletal discomfort and enhance the healing of injured tissues, accelerating your journey to recovery. The Deep Tissue Massage, in particular, concentrates on the deeper layers of muscle tissue to improve flexibility and relieve chronic muscle tension - a valuable aid in recuperating from workplace injuries.
Manual Therapy, Myofascial Release (MFR), & Spinal Manipulations
Eastwood physiotherapists use hands-on techniques like manual therapy and Myofascial Release to treat a range of musculoskeletal disorders. Through manipulation and mobilization of muscles and joints, these techniques can reduce pain, improve mobility, and enhance overall function, thus offering a comprehensive solution for workplace injuries.
Rehabilitation from work injuries necessitates active participation from the patient, which is why our treatment regimen incorporates a custom-made Exercise Therapy program. This program ensures the restoration of strength, endurance, and mobility, facilitating a smoother transition back to daily life and work.
Understanding the impact of work injuries on daily tasks and livelihood, we also provide Occupational Therapy. This aims to help patients regain their functional abilities and adapt to their physical limitations, ensuring an effective return to the workplace.
Additional Therapeutic Modalities
In the pursuit of providing holistic care, we also offer Athletic Taping and Bracing to support injured muscles and joints during the healing process. Additionally, our repertoire includes cutting-edge Electrotherapy treatments, such as Ultrasound, Interferential (IFC), Transcutaneous Nerve Stimulation (TENS), Neuro-muscular Electrical Nerve Stimulation (NMES), and Acupuncture. These interventions are designed to stimulate the body's healing mechanisms, reduce pain, and restore function.
