Musculoskeletal Injuries

Providing treatment for a wide range of muscle, joint, ligament & nerve type injuries

As Physiotherapists we train to assess and treat a wide range of conditions that can affect the entire body, these range from simple injuries such as an ankle sprain or a muscle tear to more complex presentations that affect more than one region, for example neck pain that also contributes to a shoulder problem.

With our extensive years of experience in private practice treating orthopaedic and musculoskeletal injuries we treat a wide range of simple as well as more complex, persistent musculoskeletal injuries. We constantly strive to provide the most current, evidence-based treatments with our regular sessions of in-service training, attendance at training courses and conferences and using research findings to ensure we offer the most effective and safe treatment options.

Musculoskeletal injuries can be activity related, age-related or trauma-related and these injuries have the potential to cause pain and prevent or limit your daily activities at work or leisure and sport. Treating these injuries requires a comprehensive understanding of anatomy, biomechanics and the pathology surrounding tissue trauma and repair and at Spinal Synergy Physiotherapy we take all the necessary time to extensively assess each injury in order to provide the most appropriate treatment options.

The treatment of musculoskeletal injuries needs to be specific and targeted otherwise it results in less than satisfactory outcomes and often longstanding or persistent pain and dysfunction.
