Acute injuries can occur from playing sports, the gym, falls and other causes. We see a variety of acute injuries relating to muscle tears, ligament injuries, post operative care and rehabilitation. 

Acute injuries we commonly see:

  • ACL and other ligamentous injuries of the knee
  • Acute shoulder injuries and rotator cuff injuries
  • Ankle sprains
  • Post operative injuries and rehabilitation
  • Hip injuries
  • Acute back pain 

Chronic injuries gradually develop over time, beginning with an aching/sharp/different sensation. This can progress to be a constant pain you experience that begins to affect your job, exercise and general life. 

Common chronic injuries we see:

  • Shoulder pain and rotator cuff tendinopathy, shoulder impingement conditions
  • Chronic back pain
  • Chronic neck pain
  • Knee pain and patellofemoral pain syndromes
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Ehlers Danlos syndrome 
  • Endometriosis 
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • All postoperative injuries


We always focus on identifying the cause, rather than treating the symptoms. Common treatment options would include:

  • Assessment of body biomechanics, range of movement, and muscle function
  • Soft tissue massage
  • Referrals for X-rays, MRI’s and other imaging
  • Manual mobilisation to improve stiffness
  • Dry needling and acupuncture 
  • Exercise prescription
  • Taping
  • Lifestyle modifications 
  • Posture correction and changes
