Individualised Treatment Approaches by Specific Physiotherapy

Our Thornbury physiotherapists strive to find the most effective treatment specifically for you, helping you on your journey to achieve optimal health. We recognise the distinctiveness of every individual, and this is why we tailor different treatment plans for each person.

Physiotherapy Thornbury
We’ll talk through your medical past to get a clearer picture of your ailment, sports-related injury, or any musculoskeletal conditions, followed by an explanation of our treatment methods, featuring hands-on therapies like:
Dry needling
Joint manipulation (often used for ankles, knees, the spine, etc)
Trigger point therapy
Strength and conditioning exercises
We may suggest particular exercises and provide educational content tailored just for you as part of your physiotherapy. Rather than generic handouts, we invest time in explaining the anatomy of your injury or condition, detailing expected recovery periods, including how long managing the injury might take, your prognosis, and advice on injury prevention. Our physiotherapists are dedicated to providing premium care, and our clinic aims to be at the forefront of physio treatment.

Physiotherapy Thornbury: 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. Education and Customised Treatment Plan

Now that we're acquainted with your condition, we switch roles to educate you! Using visual aids such as anatomy models and explanatory posters, we detail your condition. Next, we discuss the manual therapy options available to you and eagerly await your feedback.

3. Active Physical Treatment

At our physiotherapy clinic, your hands-on treatment, be it dry needling, joint mobilisation, Clinical Pilates, remedial massage, or a blend of various therapies, is always delivered with a friendly smile.

4. Physical Activity and Ongoing Help

Our approach to treatment encompasses more than direct hands-on therapy. We actively continue to assist you in preventing future injuries, which can impact anyone, not just individuals with existing injuries.

In many instances, it’s possible to have your treatment on the same day as your first assessment. There might be times when this isn’t achievable, for instance, if we need to refer you for further examination elsewhere. Generally, though, treatment on the day of your assessment is a realistic expectation.  

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. We’ll provide an estimate of the sessions you might need during your initial session and keep you updated if this changes during your treatment.  

In addition to private patients, our services extend to those covered by TAC and WorkCover. Feel free to contact us for more detailed information.
