What to expect.

Physiotherapy sessions last approximately 45 minutes. You can expect to be asked several questions regarding your condition, before and during the physical assessment. For an accurate physical assessment to be performed the area in question needs to be exposed, shorts and gowns are provided for this purpose.

During and after treatment the physiotherapist may educate you on the various anatomical and biomechanical structures involved. By understanding the condition it is often easier to manage it! You will often be sent home with some helpful hints and exercises to help manage the condition after your treatment session.

Depending on your condition you may need to return for further treatment sessions, this will be discussed between you and your physiotherapist.

We charge normal Medical Aid Tariffs

The cost will be depended on what the physiotherapy treatment consist of. We are contracted to all major medical aids.


Soft tissue release and joint mobelisation

This is a hands on technique to assist in improving circulation and releasing tight fascia around joints, muscles which leads to better movement.

Myofascial pain syndrome is a common debilitating disease of the muscles and associated soft tissues. Pain radiates from one or more trigger points stimulated by pressure, or by nothing at all. Although frequently confused with fibromyalgia, it is not the same syndrome.

Strapping and taping

Different taping and strapping is used for different outcomes. It might be to stabilise a joint, offload muscles in order to improve pain or to aid in swelling and bruising recovery.

It is a procedure that uses tape, attached to the skin, to physically keep in place muscles or bones in a certain position. This reduces pain & aids recovery. Physio taping is usually used to help recover from overuse and other injuries.

Electrotherapy includes a range of treatments using electricity to reduce pain, improve circulation, repair tissues, strengthen muscles, and promote bone growth, leading to improvements in physical functioning.

Chest treatments

Manual chest physiotherapy, deep breathing exercises and postural drainage is used to assist in effectively clearing the airways in acute cases (pneumonia etc) and chronic cases (COPD).

The purpose of chest physiotherapy is:

  • To facilitate removal of retained or profuse airway secretions.
  • To optimize lung compliance and prevent it from collapsing.
  • To decrease the work of breathing.
  • To optimize the ventilation-perfusion ratio/ improve gas exchange

Dry needling

The use of needles to treat muscular pain and dysfunction.

“While it’s been around for centuries, dry needling uses modern neuro-anatomy, musculoskeletal anatomy, and Western medicine’s concepts to affect the way your muscles move and function, locally, whereas acupuncture is a holistic medicine-type approach that uses the philosophy of energy systems, meridians, and qi flows,” Matt Briggs, PhD, A Physical Therapist at the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center says. This centre is a leading researcher in pelvic pain and well as dry needling for knee injuries.
