Spectrum Healthcare’s physiotherapy aims to rehabilitate and manage various musculoskeletal, sporting and occupational injuries. At Spectrum Healthcare we focus on providing hands on physiotherapy treatment.

This involves the use of soft-tissue or massage therapy alongside, exercise prescription. Our practitioners are specially trained to diagnose, treat and manage injuries. Your physiotherapist will use a range of diagnostic methods including observational and tactile assessments, orthopedic and neurological testing to ensure accurate diagnosis and therefore, the effective treatment of injury.

Physiotherapy can assist with the treatment of any condition which affects muscles, joints or nerves.

Treatment aims to manage and provide pain relief. Moreover, it can repair damage and heal injuries. Physiotherapists also provide post-operative rehabilitation and at Spectrum Healthcare we focus on rehabilitation for knee reconstructions and hip replacements. Physiotherapy treatment aims to improve mobility and increase strength.

Conditions that respond to Physiotherapy:
  • Sporting injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Back and neck pain
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
  • Muscle strains and sprains
  • Recovery from trauma
  • Post-operative rehabilitation
  • Headache and migraine management
  • Core strengthening
  • Strength and conditioning
  • Postural re-education

Our physiotherapists have further accreditation in dry needling, clinical pilates, post-operative rehabilitation, focusing on knee reconstructions, hip replacements and shoulder or ankle surgery. Our practitioners incorporate the use of state-of-the-art rehabilitation equipment such as the Alter G Anti-Gravity Treadmill and Real-Time Ultrasound to enhance and expedite the recovery process.

Where necessary we also refer patients to appropriate specialists or co-manage with other health care providers, to ensure that our patients receive optimal care as quickly as possible.

Our skilled physiotherapists use orthopaedic, neurological and muscular tests to arrive at a diagnosis. Diagnosis will enable our therapist to develop a suitable treatment plan.

Before any treatment is carried out, your Physiotherapist will assess your condition. The assessment will involve the diagnosis of the issue and the development of a treatment plan. Your therapist will work with you to devise a treatment plan which takes into account your lifestyle, general health and fitness.
