Physiotherapy on The Gold Coast

Our physiotherapists are eager to help you get out of pain so you can get back to doing the things you love. Not only are our practitioners trained in physiotherapy, but they also have extensive training in structural treatment of the feet, knees and hips using MME techniques (Mobilisation, Manipulation and Exercises). With manual therapies our physios mobilise and manipulate the joints getting them back into their natural alignment. They also use a combination of stretching and/or massage to treat the issue you are experiencing.

At Hip to Toe we love to help people get out of orthotics, out of pain and back to doing the things they love. Our physiotherapists will create a treatment plan designed just for you so you can get the best results possible.

What is manual therapy?

Manual therapy is a hands-on treatment used at Hip to Toe by our physiotherapy practitioners. It includes mobilizing and manipulating the joints in the body, soft tissue massage, stretches, and dry needling (similar to acupuncture). Our physiotherapists are trained in many different techniques so you can get the best possible outcome based on your own unique needs. By realigning the joints in the body back into their intended position, it can put less strain on the body. This can relieve the symptoms that cause pain and limit movement.

Treatment plans
At Hip to Toe we don’t want to just treat the symptoms, we want to treat the root cause of the problem. This helps you to have a lasting solution instead of a short-term ‘quick fix’ that can become a problem again in the future. Our physiotherapists at Hip to Toe are trained to know what the best treatment plan is for you. Each physiotherapy treatment plan is specifically designed for each individual client so the best outcome can be achieved based on your unique needs.

Podiatry Advice Gold Coast

Common symptoms that you may be experiencing through back pain can include:

  •  Muscle ache
    The muscles either side of the spine can get tender and have trigger points that are tender to the touch. Pain can be felt up the middle of the back, or it may ache on or both sides of the spine.
  • Stiffness
    Stiffness can cause restrictions in movement in the back from tightness in the muscles or joints of the spine.
  • Muscle Spasms
    Muscle spasm is where the muscles on either side of the spine involuntary contract and can cause a great deal of pain. Muscle spasm usually occurs as a result of injury to a deeper structure of the spine. It is essential to find out why the muscles are spasming so the root cause of the problem can be treated.
  • Nerve Pain
    Nerve Pain in the sciatic nerve is also known as Sciatica. This is usually caused by a compressed nerve in the lower spine.

Our physiotherapists are trained in treating back and lower back pain with a mixture of physiotherapy techniques and structural ‘MME’ techniques (Mobilisation, Manipulation and Exercises). Our physiotherapists have additional training to find the root cause of your problem to help you get pain free.

Neck Pain

Neck pain is a problem we see nearly every day at Hip to Toe. Around 65% of the population suffers from neck pain at some point in their lives. Hip to Toe’s Physiotherapists are able to treat the root cause of neck pain with a combination of massage, mobilisation, manipulation and exercises. Our goal is to treat the root cause of the problem.

Physiotherapy Sore Neck Pain Gold Coast

The neck is a very complex structure and has to support the weight of our heads (which is like holding up a heavy bowling ball). In addition to that, our necks need to take on everyday stresses that we make them endure, such as bad posture, car accidents, cracking our necks etc etc. With all of these added stresses, it is very easy for things to go wrong.

Some of the neck symptoms we frequently treat are:

Headaches
A dull ache around the back of the head usually coming from the base of the skull. The most common headaches are felt around the back of the head and the base of the spine. This type of headache can also radiate to the side of the skull and some time to the front of the head also.

Muscle Ache
The neck muscles might be tender and tight with hard knots (trigger points). Pain can sometimes be experienced up the middle of the neck or an ache on both or one side of the neck may occur.

Stiffness
If the joints or muscles in the neck are tight it can lead to a reduction in the ability to move the neck in a full range of motion.

Nerve Pain
Issues with the neck can lead to nerve pain in the spine. This can also result in pain in the neck that can radiate down the arms. Some people may also experience pins and needle or tingling in the arms, numbness, burning and weakness. This pain is more common at night.

Muscle Spasm
This is where the muscles in the neck involuntary contract. Sometimes you can’t move your neck or will have extremely limited or painful movement. This condition is referred to as ‘wry neck’.

Shoulder pain

Shoulder pain and shoulder injuries are common due to the shoulder being such a mobile joint. The shoulder joint is quite an unstable joint so it is prone to injury. The shoulder muscles are very important in keeping the shoulder stable and functioning properly. At Hip to Toe, shoulder pain is a common problem our physiotherapists treat.

Common shoulder conditions treated at our Gold Coast clinic include:

– Shoulder Bursitis
– Tendon or Rotator Cuff Tear
– Shoulder Dislocation
– AC Joint Injuries
– Osteoarthritic conditions

At Hip to Toe on The Gold Coast, our Physiotherapists want to help you fix the root cause of your shoulder pain instead of just treating the symptoms. Our physiotherapists move and manipulate the joints in and around the shoulder. They can also use soft tissue massage, and in some cases dry needling (similar to acupuncture) to get you back to doing the things you love.
