At Caboolture Physical Therapy Centre, we value our reputation as being ‘hands-on’ therapists. Physiotherapy is based on evidence-based scientific research and our physiotherapists are dedicated to delivering the best possible outcomes through:
Comprehensive assessment: Our Physiotherapists will assess your problem thoroughly to identify all the issues that require attention.
Hands on therapy: We provide hands-on therapy to treat the problems we identify.
Education: We will teach you about your condition and how you can help yourself.
Aquatic Physiotherapy (also hydrotherapy) is the treatment of a wide range of conditions in a pool environment.
We use the properties of the water and a variety of treatment approaches (including manual therapy and exercise) to address therapeutic goals. The buoyancy in the pool can be used to assist or resist movement in a way that’s not possible out of the water.
The pool we use is also heated to about 32 degrees to help warm up your muscles and body, to help facilitate your body’s movement.
Accredited Practicing Dietitians (APDs) are university trained health professionals with the qualifications & skills to provide expert nutritional and dietary advice.
APD is the only national credential recognised by the Australian Government, Medicare, Department of Veteran Affairs and most private health funds as the quality standard for nutrition and dietetic services in Australia.
In traditional Chinese medicine it is deemed that, in a healthy body, QI (energy) flows via special channels (meridians).
In the unhealthy state, this flow is blocked. But an appropriate insertion of needles can correct this. Acupuncture can be used to treat acute and chronic muscle and joint injuries, back and neck pain, sciatica and sports injuries.
The points are usually stimulated by the insertion of very fine, sterile needles but laser, electro-acupuncture, or acupressure may also be used.
Pilates uses a series of slow, low impact exercises to help improve core stability, flexibility and body awareness. The main focus is developing ‘core’ strength by recruiting our body’s main stabilising and postural muscles. These muscles engage together to form a ‘natural corset’ to support the spine. Developing core stability will help in the rehabilitation of neck, back and many other injuries and can help prevent reoccurrence or further injury. You’ll notice the difference after just a few classes!
As all our Pilates instructors are registered Physiotherapists or Exercise Physiologists, you may be eligible to receive a rebate from your private health fund. To ensure that the class is suited to you, please arrange an assessment with one of our Pilates trained physiotherapists.
Massage Therapy is a therapeutic treatment used to achieve relaxation, relieve muscular tension and pain, improve circulation and lymphatic flow, improve flexibility and aid the body to stimulate its healing abilities.
Massage techniques may include: Deep tissue massage, Remedial massage, Swedish massage, Sports massage and Trigger-Point Therapy.
We offer a range of services to workplaces including Workplace Evaluations, Functional Capacity Evaluations and Suitable Duties Programs.
Workplace Evaluation: allows the physiotherapist to estimate the workers potential to carry out their usual activities in the environment in which they would usually be performed.
Functional Capacity Evaluation: is a series of tests that are performed to assess the workers functional capacity to return to work after an injury or to enter a new job they may be applying for.
Suitable Duties Program: may be required for a worker to follow in order to return to work safely. This may include restricted duties or a variation in the worker’s usual working hours.
Education services include:
Manual Handling Training for schools and the workplace
Injury Prevention Programs for the workplace and for sporting clubs.
Certification is available for courses. For more info, please contact us.
We can provide tailored exercise programs and ensure correct technique and progression for a wide variety of goals and targets – at our practice and/or in your regular gym.
Programs are developed by your treating physiotherapist or by our exercise physiologist, who works closely with the physiotherapists.
Exercise Physiologists possess the knowledge, skills and competency to design and deliver general physical activity advice and clinical exercise prescription. This includes both apparently healthy persons and for those with chronic and complex diseases. The exercise programs are safe and individualised to the client’s needs and abilities, and can incorporate a combination of:
- Individualised assessment
- Behavioural change
- Counselling and support for people with chronic and/or complex disease
- Goal setting Lifestyle modification
Suffering a fall can have a massive impact on your life or the life of a loved one. Most falls result in minor injuries. However, more serious consequences can occur. Falls don’t just affect the physical body – they can also affect the mental state of mind. A fall can result in a prolonged fear of falling, lack of confidence and possibly a reduced quality of life.
A fall is determined as “unexpected event in which the participant comes to a rest on the ground, floor or lower level”. There are both modifiable and unmodifiable risk factors associated with falling. A Physio and/or Exercise Physiologist are both capable of helping determine an individual’s possible falls risk.
