Physiotherapy helps you recover from injury, reduce pain and stiffness, increase mobility and prevent further injury. They do this through manual therapy, exercise and advice.
In addition to the hands-on therapy, we use our practice gym to demonstrate and implement rehab programs. We use an app-based program called Physitrack, which loads videos of your program to your mobile device, so you can easily perform your exercises at home. This also tracks your progress over time and is a great way to monitor your health and performance goals.
Many of you would have already met our Phyiso, Mitch Casey, who has been performing pre-injury screenings with players over the last few weeks.
Mitch completed his Doctor of Physiotherapy and Bachelor of Science degrees at the University of Melbourne in 2016. Mitch has extensive knowledge in strength and conditioning as well as yoga practices and integrates these into his assessments and robust rehabilitation programs.
Outside of being a physio, Mitch likes hanging out in gyms, playing with his 40kg German Shepherd, watching all things sport, travelling, hiking and spearfishing.
Chiropractors study for a minimum of 5 years university training and are government regulated health professionals.
Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that focuses on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system and how that relationship affects our health. Using gentle and specific spinal adjustments and other manual and soft tissue techniques, chiropractic corrects misalignments of the joints, improves muscle tone and stimulates nerve activity. This has been shown to reduce pain and improve spinal function.
Clare graduated from RMIT with a double bachelor’s degree in Health Science and Applied Science. She received the Chiropractic Research award in her final year, and in 2020 went on to complete her honours degree focusing on chronic pain. Clare has also worked with various local sporting clubs focusing on injury management and prevention.
When she is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her dog Finn and her friends and family.
