Physiotherapy

Rolled your ankle at touch on Friday night? Hurt your shoulder in the gym? Felt your back ‘go’ whilst you were out gardening?

If you’ve hurt yourself at the gym, playing sport or simply while you’ve been gardening on the weekend , Physiotherapy can set you on the right path to feeling good again.

Our qualified Physiotherapists use the latest scientific research and apply it to your individual needs, helping you recover as quickly as possible. Our physiotherapists will help you get out of pain quickly and advise you on safe rehabilitation to allow you to get back to doing what you love. 

Physiotherapy is for you if you suffer from:

  • Muscle sprains and strains
  • Neck and back pain
  • Whiplash
  • Pelvic/SIJ dysfunction
  • Sciatica
  • Knee/Ankle/Hip/Shoulder pain
  • Bursitis
  • Ligament strains/tears
  • Arthritis
  • Sports injuries, for example: meniscus injury or ACL ruptures
  • Post surgical rehabilitation, for example: total hip and knee replacement, ankle surgery or ACL repair
  • Chronic pain
  • Women’s health issues including incontinence

If you need us to liaise with workplace injury management or with Third Party Insurance companies such as Workcover and personal accident insurers, we’re happy to help wherever we can and have experience in these areas. We also provide services for those under the Chronic Disease Management program (previously Enhanced Primary Care) following a referral by your GP, as well as clients under the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) program.

Most private health funds will provide you with a rebate for Physiotherapy, plus we have HICAPS available at our studio which will make the process a lot easier!

Women’s Health

At The Wellness Boutique, we take special concern in all things women’s health and are passionate about helping women take control.

Whether it’s  a leak when you cough, sneeze or laugh, needing to constantly rush to the toilet, or pre- or post-natal  aches and pains, our highly-trained Physiotherapists are here to help. We’ve completed extra training that specialises in women’s health, so chances are we’ve got the experience to help put you on the path to recovery .

We can help you with:

  • Overactive bladder

We’re passionate about giving control back to women – in every session, we educate you about exercises and strategies that will assist in recovery and equip you with the knowledge to manage this part of your life. We promise you’ll notice a difference from the very first session!

Physiotherapy for pre and post natal women

While pregnancy is such an exciting journey to be on, sometimes there’s some changes happening in your body that aren’t so exciting (or fun).

If you’re experiencing pain or discomfort in your pelvis or lower back, we can help you through targeted Physiotherapy treatment. We can also assist you with exercises that are safe, keep you active and healthy during each stage of pregnancy and reduce the risk of complications, injury or pesky aches and pains.

After you’ve had bub, you’ll be busy looking after you new little human and bonding as a family. However, this is one of the most important times to look after yourself and invest in recovery. Our specialised women’s health Physiotherapist will work with you to rehabilitate separated abdominal muscles, strengthen your pelvic floor and guide you back into your exercise routine.

Most private health funds will provide you with a rebate for Physiotherapy, plus we have HICAPS available at our studio which will make the process a lot easier!

Scoliosis

stretches for scoliosis

At The Wellness Boutique we offer conservative treatment for scoliosis and manage pre and post scoliosis surgery rehabilitation

Each scoliosis curve pattern is unique so we offer individually tailored treatment programs made by our physiotherapist based on your curve pattern and progression, skeletal maturity and current symptoms. Whether you are an adolescent, adult or surgical patient, the exercises used are based on the Schroth Method principles that have been shown to:

  • Decrease the progression of the curve
  • Reduce pain associated with scoliosis
  • Improve postural alignment
  • Improve vital lung capacity
  • Cosmetic improvement- improved appearance

We work closely with spinal specialists and offer a full rehabilitation program post scoliosis surgery using Schroth principles and Clinical Pilates. An individual assessment will be required to determine specific treatment goals and how many sessions you will need.

Initial Consultation

You will meet physiotherapist Alexane Escot for a 90mins initial consultation. This will consist of:

  • Discussion of your scoliosis and resulting symptoms
  • Detailed client history (medical & family history, previous treatment avenues, specialists seen)
  • X-ray examination and interpretation
  • Physical examination including a postural assessment, specific scoliosis tests and any other relevant tests for the patient and their presentation
  • Photographs taken (side, back and front views)
  • Quality of life questionnaires
  • Explanation of your specific scoliosis curve and treatment options available based on the initial assessment findings*

*All our recommendations follow the guidelines produced by the International Scientific Society on Scoliosis Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Treatment (SOSORT).

Please bring

  • X-rays of your back (recent and old). If you do not have x-rays or a recent
    x-ray please organise this with your GP or physiotherapist. We suggest EOS scans which are more accurate and associated with less radiation exposure. South Coast Radiology at Southport Gold Coast Surgery Centre have an EOS machine
  • A pair of shorts/tights

For accurate assessment, the physiotherapist is required to clearly see the whole torso so shirts will need to be removed. Females- please wear either a normal bra, bikini top or sports bra that you are comfortable in (not a t-back or crossed strap, normal straps are best)

Health fund rebate may apply for all the above costing. Additionally, if you are eligible for an Enhanced Primary Care program (EPC)* you may receive the Medicare rebate of $52.95 per session.

*Please discuss your eligibility for EPC with your GP. If you are eligible please bring a copy of your referral to your initial consultation.

Massage

Write this down and stick it to your wall/fridge/shower/ forehead: taking time out for you is a crucial part of maintaining health & wellbeing.

Massage is undoubtedly one of the best ways to promote relaxation of the body and recovery for muscles, tendons, joints and fascia. It has been proven to relieve pain, increase flexibility and improve overall well being. Whether you’re seized up in the shoulders from a long day hunched over the office desk or borderline immobile after a particularly cruel/effective training set, massage will help relieve pain and tightness whilst allowing you to rest and reinvigorate your body. It’s the best way to multitask a solid nap while unconsciously provoking healthy blood circulation.
