so you feel better.
At Pure Physio we take a unique approach to physiotherapy treatment.
We pride ourselves on going beyond the basics. Learn more about the approach our physios take to ensure a better result for you.
February CPD was focused on running. We had the opportunity to run in different shoes, experiment with different running cues and tried running at different cadences (step rates) to give us a better understanding of what our patients experience.
Ever wondered if the surface you ran on impacted your risk of injury, the types of injuries you might get and the muscle strength you develop?
The AFLW buzz is back again! After the season opener matches, we have been kept up to date at the Australian Physiotherapy Associations yearly breakfast about how we are going to tackle the big problem of injury, particularly knee injuries to the ACL.
As Clinicians, we engage in professional development on specific skills. Our courses are often focused on injury presentations, making an accurate diagnosis, comprehension of different types of tissues in the body, our reasoning as to how or why an injury has occurred, and our skill in devising an appropriate rehabilitation program. This is done for the key purpose of helping patients to recover from injury and achieve their desired outcomes of sporting, lifestyle, or other goals and aspirations.
You may have noticed that here at Pure we do things slightly differently. If you see us for treatment, you will typically have two physios looking after you (you lucky thing!) – a manual physio and a rehab physio. Most injuries, be they gradual or sudden, result in varying levels of pain and/or stiffness and require some form of hands-on (manual) treatment plus retraining altered movement patterns and strength work (rehab).
