How do myPhysioSA Spinal Physiotherapists help?

Physiotherapists trained in spinal conditions are experts in the assessment and treatment of movement. Often patients with a spinal condition have maladaptive movement patterns that are significantly contributing to their pain. Changing these movement patterns using a multi-disciplinary approach has been shown in recent research to be very effective in improving patient’s symptoms (O’Sullivan, 2005)

We offer:

A: Assessment of your spine problem

  1. Our Exercise Physiologist’s offer a ViMove spine assessment:

Vi Move by Dorsavi gives you real-time feedback that empowers you to manage your lower back and neck pain through accurate assessment of your posture and spinal movement. Vi Move may allow you to move more effectively, reducing your reliance on pain medication and other interventions.

Vi Move by Dorsavi uses wireless sensor technology to record pain and measure movement, posture and muscle activity. So essentially, we get a picture or ‘fingerprint’ of your activity and pain throughout the day allowing you to develop a tailored program to manage your back pain and monitor your progress.

  1. Physiotherapist Assessment

See one of our Spinal Physiotherapists with advanced training in helping people like you with their painful spinal problem.

Your low back pain or neck pain is unique to you. The cause, type and location of the pain is often unique to each individual.

This means there is no single “fix” for all low back pain.  Usually, a thorough assessment of the factors involved is the key to getting a solution that works for you.

We listen, then discuss what you want to be able to get back to doing, assess your spine and then decide together what the best plan is to get you back on track fast.

B: Giving you a solution to your problem

  1. Physiotherapy Treatment

Our Spinal trained Physiotherapists can also help give you a solution with our many treatment options and a targeted rehab program. Your Physiotherapist will work with you to get you back to enjoy moving again, with less pain.

  1. In-house spine rehabilitation programs by our Exercise Physiologist

Stephen will design and show you through your targeted spine rehab program. At other gyms you may well get some young inexperienced gym instructor who knows nothing about rehab. Our on-site gyms are for our client’s use only and specifically designed for spinal rehabilitation.
