Hydrotherapy Centre in Melbourne

dry needle acupuncture physiotherapy

By Michael Hall

If exercise is the greatest drug known to human kind, hydrotherapy must be the greatest therapy.

As the name suggests, hydrotherapy is therapy in water. In other words, it involves specific techniques, exercises and training that enhance physical recovery and performance.. As water provides buoyancy but also resistance, hydrotherapy takes the load off painful joints whist placing resistance on to muscles.

Hydrotherapy is therefore the ideal treatment modality for arthritis, chronic back pain, neck pain, post-operative rehabilitation, muscle strains, joint sprains, joint replacement surgery and in fact almost every physical problem.

Hydrotherapy is the ultimate compliment for “hands on” therapy and a land based rehabilitation program such as clinical pilates and is another tool that can help to accelerate and optimize your recovery.

To get maximum benefits from hydrotherapy, it is important that you perform your hydrotherapy program in a specifically designed hydrotherapy pool. There are few specific hydrotherapy pools in Melbourne and even fewer in Bayside, however, recently Bodywise Health was given access to use the Bayside Hydrotherapy Pool at Elanora located in Hampton / Brighton. This hydrotherapy pool in Bayside Hampton and Brighton also serves the wider Bayside areas of Elwood, Elsternwick, Sandringham, Highett, Cheltenham, Black Rock and Beaumaris.

Like Melbourne Hydrotherapy Centre or Melbourne Hydrotherapy, Bodywise Health is now able to offer you the benefits of enhanced pain relief, muscle strengthening, joint mobility, flexibility, balance, control, coordination and function that is uniquely delivered by advanced hydrotherapy programs.

Dry Needling Physical Therapy Melbourne

Bodywise Health

 dry needling melbourne

By Michael Hall

If you suffer from tension headaches, muscle spasm, tightness or soreness due to stress, tension or chronic pain, dry needling therapy combined with physiotherapy may be just your solution.

Dry needling treatment is now becoming very widespread in the treatment of acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions such as dry needling for knee pain.

It is theorized that muscle overload or muscle injury can cause areas of increased soft tissue tension, stiffness and knotting (trigger points). Dry needling treatment involves inserting fine filament needles into trigger points to reproduce a patient’s symptoms, cause a local twitch response and achieve relief of muscle tension and pain.

The bigger the twitch response the greater the treatment effect appears to be in terms of reduced pain, greater muscles relaxation and nervous tension release. The soft tissue then becomes soft and supple, an ideal environment for optimal healing to take place.

Dry needling therapy however can have some adverse effects and for this reason must be performed by physiotherapists and health professionals who are well trained and qualified in this modality.

Whilst dry needling treatment does cause some local, temporary soreness, this can be minimized by the application of heat and stretching.

Dry needling therapy must not be used such as with bleeding disorders, active infections, blood borne diseases, metal allergies, unstable allergies and in the third trimester of pregnancy.

Additionally, extreme care must be taken when dry needling near the lungs to avoid causing a punctured lung.

Having said this, dry needling physical therapy may deliver the best healthcare results for conditions such as tension headaches, long term back pain, arthritis or any other acute or chronic joint or muscle pain.

Dry needling physiotherapy is the ideal integration of dry needling therapy with “hands on” massage and mobilization/manipulation techniques and stretching, stabilization and strengthening exercises to reduce pain, correct biomechanics and optimize function.

Physiotherapy Melbourne

 sports physiotherapy

By Michael Hall

Physiotherapy treatment and exercises are the world’s premier modalities for fixing and preventing physical health problems. Physiotherapy treatment changes lives for the better by providing solutions for any and all movement problems.

From babies to the elderly, physiotherapy treatment and physiotherapy exercises can make every aspect of your life better. Whether it is how you work, how you play or even how you sleep, physiotherapy exercises can help you perform all of these functions better.

Everything you do, involves a complex interaction of the joints, muscles and nervous system control of your whole body. It stands to reason therefore, that all injuries which involve performing a certain function, must involve an assessment of each component of the movement as well as addressing the performance of the function as a whole.

This is the physiotherapist treatment advantage. Because physiotherapists have many more treatment techniques, and can treat a problem from many different angles, you have the possibility of experiencing better, faster results.

Physiotherapy Melbourne includes many physiotherapy clinics in Melbourne which work across many different areas of medicine including orthopaedics (muscles, bones), cardiothoracic (heart and lungs), neurology (brain and spinal cord), paediatrics (babies and children), and even pre and post-natal (pregnancy and child birth). Physiotherapists also form part of a medical team and can work with your doctor or other health professional to ensure that your care is coordinated and maximally effective.

The best physiotherapist is the one who can analyze how each component movement contributes to your function as a whole and then is able to treat, train and automate these components to produce optimal performance.

The best physiotherapist is the one who assesses the mobility of your joints, the strength of your muscles and the control of your movements to determine deficits and identify causes. The best physiotherapists then use “hands on” techniques to free up specific joints, loosen specific muscles and mobilize the nervous system to create the optimal environment for healing.

These techniques also make rehabilitative exercise more effective, which makes postural and movement correction more effective. Consequently, all the treatment that we perform at Bodywise Health is not just directed at healing your problem, but importantly directed at getting you back doing the things you love to do whether it be playing with the kids, going for a run or playing tennis.

Bodywise Health employs the best physiotherapists in Melbourne who are passionate about enabling you to overcome your physical challenges so that you can live your life to the full.

Each consultation involves:

  1. Listening to you, so that we can understand better your concerns, needs, wants and goals.
  2. Performing a comprehensive and professional physical evaluation and to informing you of our assessment findings.
  3. Educating you about your problem and based on our experience, give you an honest estimate of how long it may take to get better as well as the stages of healing that you can expect to take place.
  4. Learning about your expectations, clarifying your wants and needs and gaining agreement as to your goals, so that we can implement the most effective, relevant treatment.
  5. Ongoing measurement the effectiveness of our treatments, so that adjustments can be made to ensure that you remain on track.
  6. Teaching and instructing you in self-management techniques so that you are empowered to help yourself.

Whilst some health professions use just one or a limited number of treatment techniques, Bodywise Health physiotherapists use a vast array of techniques and technology including “hands on” massage, mobilization, manipulation, muscle energy, dry needling / acupuncture, hydrotherapy, sports specific rehabilitation and clinical pilates that can be used individually or combined synergistically to provide better, faster results.
