Personalised Therapies at Specific Physiotherapy

At Specific Physiotherapy, our Northcote physiotherapists are dedicated to identifying the ideal treatment for you, guiding you towards peak health. We acknowledge that every body is unique, thus necessitating distinct treatment strategies for each individual.

Physiotherapy Northcote
To better understand your chronic condition, sports injury, or any musculoskeletal issues, we’ll go over your medical history with you, then guide you through our various treatment options, which include hands-on therapies such as:
Dry needling
Joint manipulation (often used for ankles, knees, the spine, etc)
Trigger point therapy
Strength and conditioning exercises
Specific exercises and personalised educational material may be part of your physiotherapy plan. We go beyond standard handouts, offering a comprehensive anatomical breakdown of your injury or condition, discussing expected recovery times, including the management of your injury, prognosis, and ways to prevent future injuries. Our physiotherapists provide top-tier care, aiming for excellence in our clinic.

Physiotherapy Northcote: Our Treatment Process

1. Introductory Assessment

Your physiotherapy consultation includes a conversation about your health concerns and a detailed review of your medical history, along with a thorough assessment. We gather information about your chronic condition, musculoskeletal or sports injuries to decide the best manual therapy approach that meets your individual needs.

2. Information and Treatment Planning

With a clear understanding of your condition, it's time for us to provide you with information. Through visual aids like anatomy models and detailed posters, we explain your condition comprehensively. Then, we'll talk about your options for manual therapy and hear what you have to say.

3. In-Clinic Treatment

In our physiotherapy clinic, we provide your hands-on treatment, which may include dry needling, joint mobilisation, Clinical Pilates, or remedial massage, or perhaps a combination of these, all with a welcoming smile.

4. Exercise Guidance and Assistance

Our treatment extends beyond just hands-on methods. We continue in supporting you to prevent future injuries, which can occur to anyone—after all, injury prevention isn't just for those currently injured!

Physiotherapy FAQs

There’s no need for a referral to consult with a physio. You can easily book an appointment online at our physiotherapy clinic, where we’ll team up to design a treatment strategy just for you. 

Yes, managing chronic pain is part of our services. We recognise the role chronic pain can play and strive to help you manage it effectively. The Medicare Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) initiative provides access to up to five allied health sessions per calendar year for individuals with EPC plans, and we have considerable experience in working with chronic conditions under this program. Visit our chronic pain page for more information.

Whether your aspiration is to become a Magpie or Hawk, or to just up your game in supporting roles like running or assisting at your children’s soccer games, we support athletes of all abilities and ambitions.  

Yes, frequently, treatment can commence on the same day as your initial evaluation. There could be situations where this isn’t practicable, like needing a referral for more comprehensive analysis. In most cases, you can expect to begin treatment on your assessment day.  

Specific Physiotherapy is conveniently situated at 149 Plenty Road, Preston, Vic, making it easily accessible for your physiotherapy needs.  

The amount of physio sessions required varies based on your particular condition and objectives, meaning there isn’t a standard number of appointments for everyone.
