DOWN SOUTH PHYSIO & SPORTS REHAB
Down South Physio & Sports Rehab has invested in a Real Time Diagnostic Machine. Bree Urbani is utilising the Ultrasound Machine to assist building the Women’s Health service within the practice. 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 has an advanced approach to Women’s Health, Sports Physio and Musculoskeletal areas supported by diagnostic technology and rehab equipment. We can assist with confirmation of diagnosis, visual understanding and education.
Down South Physio is a private practice that supports the local Dunsborough/Yallingup townships and surrounding community. Our aim is to be connected as physiotherapists for the local community and South-West region while also promoting sport and physical activity at all levels. We have the skills to look after the following;
- Sports Injuries – including tendinopathy, hamstring tears, golfer’s elbow, runner’s knee, shoulder impingement, tennis elbow.
- Surfing Injuries – Specifically for the spine, knee, ankle shoulder, ligaments and fracture / dislocations
- Musculoskeletal Problems – eg. Sciatica (lower back pain), shoulder pain, tension headaches, trauma and Osteoarthritis
- Post-Operative Orthopaedic Rehabilitation – eg. hip and knee replacement surgery, ACL knee reconstructions, shoulder tendon repairs and fractures.
- Work Injuries or Workers Compensation.
- Paediatric Physiotherapy – Early and adolescent injuries; growth plate problems, developmental physiotherapy and sports injuries.
- Continence and Women’s Health – Physio for women with pelvic floor muscle dysfunction; prolapse, bladder or bowel incontinence, pre/post natal assessment, pelvic pain or sexual dysfunction.
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.
