Do you have Back or Neck pain?
We have a Solution
At East Gosford Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Centre we have highly trained Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists who work together to provide you with a solution to your reoccurring back pain.
>Our back pain solutions protocol is aimed at solving your problems, not just giving you a Band-Aid for your back and neck, and includes our revolutionary Bounce Back Active Rehabilitation program.
Your physiotherapist will find out your ULTIMATE GOAL and set up a plan or pathway to achieve this Goal.
Our Back Pain Solutions Protocol has 3 components…
Shoulder & arm pain
East Gosford Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Centre has worked with a local orthopaedic surgeon and pain specialists to develop a program to treat shoulder and arm pain (particularly when it is NOT going away).
Shoulder and arm pain can occur with injury, or for no reason if you are over 40, and often has a postural component as the cause.
The rotator cuff is a complex group of muscles which rely on a stable shoulder blade to function well.
If your shoulder blade is not sitting in the correct position or is moving incorrectly you may cause an impingement in your shoulder. This is simply a squashing of your bursa or cuff tendon and is very painful.
Hip, Knee, Ankle and Foot Pain
The physiotherapists at East Gosford Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Centre have looked at the latest research into tendons and have developed a program for hip pain, especially the type that is worse at night.
We have found it common to have a hip tendon problem causing pain on the outside of your hip often co-existing with a bursitis. If you have had your bursitis treated, and your pain has returned, we suggest you have your hip tendon assessed and treated. East Gosford Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Centre has excellent results with our management program for persisting hip tendon pain, so contact us today so we can help you.
Sports Injuries & Programs
East Gosford Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Centre has been managing sports injuries for over 20 years.
We have developed some specific programs to help Central Coast Sportsmen, women and children keep enjoying their sports without injury, with our Injury Prevention Programs. (Click on your sport above).
If you are injured, we have highly trained physiotherapists ready to treat your sports injury and look at the factors which may have caused it initially.
and why we are different
to other physio’s
We deal with patients in acute and chronic pain who have not found a solution to their problems. We deal with Chronic disease and issues associated with aging such as reduced fitness, poor balance and posture and loss of motivation.
We will answer 3 Questions for you:
1. What is wrong with me?
2. What can we do to help you?
3. How long will it take?
This is the first question we attempt to answer!
We use the latest analysis tools and clinical expertise to give you a diagnosis.
We will spend time getting to know you and finding out what is holding you back.
We will clearly instruct you on this pathway, as you move from Pain to Performance and move you from Physiotherapy to Exercise Physiology at the appropriate time
We need to remove your pain FIRST, but to prevent it coming back (as it may have previously) we provide you with a solution to prevent reoccurrence.
We will then Rebuild and Restore your Core and Movement and move to improving your Performance (what ever that is for you)
Removing your pain as quickly as possible is our priority, as we restore your core and movement.
To keep it away, we suggest Prevention strategies and ways you can improve your Performance.
Depending on your condition, and for how long you have suffered , this may take a little longer to achieve, BUT it will be worthwhile.
Itâ€™s your Choiceâ€¦. This will be tailored to YOU, so you can have certainly over time frames and costs.
Our Programs are very patient focused and our Physios and Exercise Physiologists will give you a Self Management Plan, to complement your treatment (and speed it up)
