Hip pain

Good recovery planning often hinges on a holistic approach that considers the role of the low back, pelvis, knees and feet in normal hip function.

Sciatica

Sciatica

‘Sciatica’ is sciatic nerve irritation or entrapment; it may relate to back, hip or thigh pathology

Sciatica can present as pain, numbness or weakness in the hip, buttock and leg. It can be any one of these symptoms or any combination. This is often preceded by low back or hip pain, but at some point, the leg pain becomes the main feature. Less commonly sciatica can relate to other, more serious pathology like inflammatory arthritis, tumours, diabetes and vitamin deficiencies. We’ll help you work out why you have sciatica and what to do about it.

Knee pain

Knee Pain

Osteoarthritis, ACL/PCL sprains or tears, meniscal sprains or tears, Distal hamstring tendinopathy or Chondromalacia patellae

Staying active and undertaking safe exercise during the early stages of knee injury provides better long-term outcomes and shorter-lived pain than manual therapy, bed rest or avoidance. So, an early visit to an allied health professional like our osteopaths or exercise physiologists can help to relieve acute pain, keep you functional and get you on a faster track to recovery.

Shoulder pain

Joint sprains, Arthritis, Fractures and dislocations, Impingement syndromes, Rotator cuff tears or tendonitis or Subacromial bursitis

Shoulder pain is commonly associated with various work and sporting activities that are repetitive, involve overhead work or heavy loads. The complexity of shoulder mechanics means that often, one injury will lead to another, making shoulder injury difficult to overcome. The key to success is developing a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses pain, strength, mobility and coordination. We can help with this.

Ankle pain

Ankle Pain

Acute or repetitive ankle sprains, impingement syndromes, Achilles tendonitis, Arthritis or Stress fracture

Ankle pain is common, but it is particularly common in those who participate in sports requiring repetitive running, jumping or sudden changes in direction. More than half of ankle sprains result in chronic pain or instability and that can put you at risk of injury elsewhere in the lower limb (think hip and knee), so managing ankle injuries well is important for long term health and fitness.
