We are the leading physiotherapy clinic in Brisbane offering a wide range of sports physio services and rehabilitation.
We believe in providing one on one care to focus on your needs and goals.
Physiotherapists use hands-on techniques (mobilisation and massage), movement analysis and re-training and exercise prescription to restore or enhance physical function.
PhysioTec physiotherapists are highly trained to address musculoskeletal issues that may have been present since birth, or developed subsequent to an accident, injury, or degenerative changes.
We can help you overcome or more effectively manage pain, stiffness and mobility issues, working with you to restore your ability to return to work, sport, or a better quality of life.
For many, the postures adopted in sitting and standing, and movement patterns used in work, sporting, and social environments contribute strongly to ongoing pain and dysfunction.
At PhysioTec we do not believe in a ‘band-aid' approach, where short-term relief is provided but the problem keeps returning.
While we do provide early hands-on techniques to make you feel better as quickly as possible, we like to get to the bottom of what factors have predisposed you to this problem, and other compensatory factors that may be prolonging the issue.
Based on a detailed and holistic assessment, you will be provided with important education and advice regarding key drivers and an individually tailored exercise and management plan.
We use evidence-based treatments, cutting-edge technology and high quality hands-on and exercise techniques to help you improve your quality of life or your athletic performance.
HIP, GROIN AND PELVIC PAIN
This is an area of particular expertise for Dr Alison Grimaldi & the physiotherapists of PhysioTec Physiotherapy. All PhysioTec staff have had extensive training with Alison in the management of conditions in this area.
Because our clinic also attracts large numbers of clients with problems in this region, all our physiotherapists have had a much higher level of experience with these conditions than a generalist clinic.
MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN & INJURY
Spinal issues eg. low back, thoracic and neck pain – We see many patients with chronic lumbo-pelvic pain and work closely with pain specialists to optimise longer term outcomes from interventional pain medicine such as injections and neurotomies.
Acute injuries eg. ligament sprains, muscle strains – Our sports physiotherapists are well trained to deal with all acute or sporting injuries.
Chronic injuries eg. arthritis
Post-surgical rehabilitation after arthroscopies, reconstructions, fracture fixation
Neural tissue (nerve) pain and mobility issues
We have physiotherapists with a special interest in assisting hypermobile clients with the complex issues that often accompany these conditions. Generalised strengthening/exercise programmes are often not well tolerated by people with hypermobility.
Our specific and individualised approach is tailored to improving your quality of life whether that means helping you get back to work, back to sport or back to family outings. Don't let hypermobility control your life.
WOMEN'S HEALTH AND CONTINENCE ISSUES
Urinary leakage and heaviness of the pelvic floor are NOT normal. Many women believe that these issues are just a part of everyday life and do not realise that there are physiotherapists who have undergone specialised training to help women with bladder and bowel issues and pelvic pain. Don't wait any longer. Our women's health physio, Megan Power, can help you make a change today.
BIOMECHANICAL ASSESSMENTS FOR RUNNING
Many people rely on running for their physical and/or mental health or for their income, but poor technique may result in injuries that continually interrupt training. Our physiotherapists provide specific biomechanical and running assessments using state-of-the-art ViPerform technology to provide you with a tailored programme to optimise your running technique, keeping you on the track and maximising your performance outcomes.
BIKEFITS AND BIOMECHANICAL ASSESSMENTS FOR CYCLING
A bike fit and cycling specific biomechanical assessment performed by an experienced cycling physiotherapist will improve your comfort on your bike and help you maximize your power output. So whether its pain-free cycling or improved performance you are after, book an appointment to see Eric today. Got a new bike? Come and have a bike fit before you clock up too many k's and a new injury on an ill-fitting bike.
REHABILITATION AND ADVICE FOR RETURN TO SPORT
There is often a large gap between rehabilitative exercises and return to sport. We will provide you with sport specific drills and advice on monitoring and progressing your training loads. This is critical in the prevention of re-injury or the development of a new problem as you return to your chosen sport.
Our physiotherapists can provide advice and conditioning exercises to help you maintain optimal posture or form throughout your working day. Having adequate strength and endurance in specific muscle groups can make a huge difference in your ability to avoid postural aches and pains. At the other extreme being too rigid or tense at work is just as problematic. Specific cueing and simple on-the-job relaxation techniques can be very effective. Have an active job? Learning to move well and lift well will keep you safer at work.
POST CANCER TREATMENT
The cancer experience is extremely challenging emotionally, psychologically, spiritually and physically. Julie Allen, a cancer survivor and highly experienced physiotherapist has developed a unique programme that offers tailored exercise and advice and the opportunity to become involved in a supportive group environment. This programme can have positive impacts on all aspects of your life.
