While SMC Physio offers a range of services, it has a strong focus on women's health physiotherapy and education. Women's health is a growing field of physiotherapy which covers pregnancy, the postpartum period and the pelvic floor. This includes many issues such as:
Ab separation (DRAM)
Pelvic organ prolapse
To properly assess and treat these issues an internal examination is usually recommended. To find out more about these conditions and how I can help treat them please contact me to discuss.
At SMC Physio I'll assess and treat a wide range of musculoskeletal issues. Some of the most common musculoskeletal issues can include the following:
Low back pain
Musculoskeletal physiotherapy covers a wide range of injuries, pain and conditions. If you aren't sure what your category yours falls under, no stress! Just contact me and I'll be able to help.
Sport and musculoskeletal physiotherapy are one and the same however they often differ in terms of the client's goals. If you are an elite or keen sportsperson then you've come to the right place.
I have experience working with elite athletes across many sporting fields, including netball, football, cross fit, ballet, weight lifting and many more.
Most of my experience has been focused on Australian Rules Football, where athletes experience a wide range of injuries, working with teams including the following:
South Adelaide Panthers (SANFL)
NT Thunder (NEAFL)
Nightcliff Tigers (NTFL)
Darwin Buffaloes (NTFL)
Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation
One of the most common reasons people need to see a physio is to rehabilitate from an injury such as an ACL tear, shoulder dislocation, hamstring tear and the list goes on. A full recovery from these injuries requires more than just having the structure healed. It means returning back to pre-injury status to get you back to work, sport or play!
Injury prevention is a topic clients are often interested in, particularly those wanting to keep in top form for their work or sport. Exercise programs based on the demands of your life are highly recommended and can be developed after a physical assessment on site.
