DOWN SOUTH PHYSIO & SPORTS REHAB
Down South Physio & Sports Rehab has just invested in a Diagnostic Real Time Ultrasound Machine. This month Bree Urbani has started with us focussing on Women’s Health. She is currently completing her Masters in Continence and Women’s Health Physiotherapy at Curtin University.
She will be specialising in this area, which will be a great benefit to the Dunsborough Community.
The Practice now has an advanced approach to both Women’s Health and Musculoskeletal Injuries, with this new machine. We can assist with confirmation of diagnosis, visual understanding and education.
Down South Physio is a private physiotherapy practice that supports the local Dunsborough/Yallingup and surrounding community. Our aim is to be connected within the community and surrounding South-West region, plus support sport and physical activity at all levels. We have the skills to look after the following;
- Sports Injuries – such as tendinopathy, hamstring tears, golfer’s elbow, runner’s knee, shoulder impingement, tennis elbow.
- Surfing Injuries.
- Musculoskeletal Problems – such as Sciatica (lower back pain), shoulder injuries, tension headaches.
- Post-Operative Rehabilitation.
- Orthopaedic Rehabilitation – such as surgeries involving knee or hip replacements surgery, ACL knee reconstructions, shoulder tendon repairs and fractures.
- Work Injuries or Workers Compensation.
- Paediatric Physiotherapy – physio for children including; growth plate injuries, developmental physiotherapy and sports injuries.
Our approach is to provide hands on manual treatment combined with “active rehabilitation”. We have a link with Curtin University School of Physiotherapy, plus the South West Academy of Sport, providing a strong network and proactive approach to helping patients.
Manual therapy is a major focus of our practice philosophy and treatment approach. This means ‘hands on’ treatment methods including soft tissue work, muscle release techniques, joint mobilisations, spinal manipulation, dry needling and movement techniques.
Our practice has multiple treatment rooms and a rehab gym, therefore we are able to assist with injuries across a range of sporting codes. Our physios are experienced working with teams and organisations in a sports physiotherapy capacity. The significance of returning to sport is well recognised by us and through our rehab methods.
Physio guided exercises is specific to a person’s individual needs and applicable to a range of situations, therefore we use WA made stainless steel reformers that are user friendly for all patients and sports participants. Additionally we have a trapeze table, Inspire weights machine, exercise bikes, treadmills, free weights and floor equipment to assist any rehabilitation or guided physical activity.
