What you can expect from us
A thorough assessment let’s us get to know you, your body and your problem.
A general medical history and thorough physical examination helps us get to know your body and understand the causes of your pain.
We do a range of neuro-orthopaedic and functional movement tests to tell us what kind of pain you’re suffering and to better understand how you’ve adapted to it. This style of examination gives us an idea of why you developed your injury but most importantly it gives us strategies for increasing your functional capacity and decreasing your pain.
Targeted treatments with highly skilled therapists
We offer a range of therapies at MOH including Osteopathy, Exercise Physiology and Myotherapy so you’ll get a coordinated, multidisciplinary approach to your recovery under one roof.
Your treatment will initially focus on pain management and what you can do to aid tissue repair and encourage recovery. In most cases, the early stages of any injury can be managed well with relative rest, gentle manual therapy and sensible movement. Manual treatment may involve massage, gentle joint mobilisation or manipulation and maybe even some dry needling to decrease pain and improve movement.
An individually tailored functional rehabilitation program
As soon as you can tolerate it, we’ll expand your program and get you addressing all the things that contributed to your problem; things like stiff joints, poor postural habits and workplace or sports ergonomics. These are often critical factors in preventing the recurrence of injury.
Then we’ll get working on building a bit of muscle and maximising movement so that you’re fit enough to get back to doing the things you love.
Return to work, social & sports activity planning
We will help you to transition back into your previous work safely, and assist you while you return to your social, sporting and physical activities – the final and most important step of your overall recovery!
