Back and Neck Pain

Physiotherapists are the health professionals most commonly used by medical practitioners and specialists when referring patients for the treatment of neck and back pain.

Back and neck pain can be caused by problems with discs, joints, muscles and/or ligaments. These structures can be injured as a result of acute trauma, poor postural habits and/or the accumulation of physical stress on the spine. Pain can also occur as a result of arthritis, degenerating discs, muscle tension, muscle weakness and/or normal wear and tear.

Physiotherapists are university qualified in the assessment and treatment of spinal problems.

Physiotherapists treat back and neck pain using a variety of techniques. These techniques include joint mobilisation (a gentle, safe form of manipulation), traction, heat, laser, ultrasound and exercises. Advice can also be provided on ways to relieve your pain by correcting its cause, for example the correction of poor postural habits.


Arthritic Pain

Have you been told there is nothing you can do about your arthritis?

A large proportion of arthritic pain occurs due to joint stiffness and the associated inflammation. Specialised physiotherapy techniques can safely decrease this stiffness, in turn reducing inflammation and significantly improving your pain.


Sports Injuries

Sports injuries not properly treated can lead to ongoing problems which can affect your sporting performance or future health!

Sports injuries, whether they are recent or old injuries continuing to cause problems, need professional assessment and management to ensure no unnecessary complications arise.

Injuries left to heal themselves can lead to long term residual problems due to soft tissue adhesions and tightness, joint stiffness, muscle imbalance and a deficiency in the return of normal muscle strength.

Physiotherapists are highly qualified and trained in the assessment and treatment of sports injuries and have a traditional working relationship with doctors.

With a comprehensive knowledge of biomechanics, tissue pathology and tissue healing, experienced physiotherapists play an integral part in the treatment, rehabilitation and injury prevention of professional athletes in sporting teams and organisations such as the Australian Olympic Team and the Australian Institute of Sport.

The physiotherapists at Revesby Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Centre have extensive experience in the treatment of both non-elite and elite athletes.
