Move well, stay well

The traditional focus of physiotherapy is to remove pain and restore healthy, functional movement. At The Body Refinery, we take this a step further. We are highly trained to assess and diagnose musculoskeletal problems and treat the underlying causes of the pain and dysfunction. With an aim of minimising the likeness of injury re-occurrence, we then incorporate power, strength and endurance into your movement.

Physiotherapists complete a 4-year university degree in which they study human movement and rehabilitation. The Body Refinery physiotherapists are highly skilled technicians when it comes to movement restoration through movement therapies.

We are here to help you whether you are recovering from pain, illness, injury or are seeking preventive treatment.

To experience the benefits that physiotherapy can bring to your body and quality of life, call to book your appointment today at our New Farm studio: 2/15 Lamington Street.

What to expect during your first session with a physiotherapist?

Our physiotherapists treat one patient at a time in a private room, so you can be sure that their attention will be focused on you and your recovery for the duration of your appointment.

Your initial session will be 45 minutes long. This will allow your physiotherapist to take a detailed history of your condition, assess your movements, undertake testing, administer treatment, and make a plan of action to move forward. You should also have time to ask questions, so you understand your presenting problem and learn ways that you can manage it.

The Body Refinery’s Physiotherapists use a variety of manual therapy techniques including:

  • Myofascial and soft tissue release
  • Joint mobilisation
  • Dry needling
  • Muscle energy techniques
  • Taping
  • Real-time ultrasound training for muscle control
  • Corrective exercises
  • Ergonomic and postural advice
  • Shockwave treatment

We are a multidisciplinary practice, where your physiotherapist is able to collaborate with your myotherapist, exercise physiologist, Pilates instructor or massage therapist to ensure a faster, more effective treatment and recovery from a range of conditions.
