Find out how Better Moves Physiotherapy can help you to improve your performance and move better.
What We Offer
During an injury assessment, we thoroughly examine the injured body area to discover what may be the underlying cause. Injury assessments involve both participation with the Physiotherapist and patient to reproduce their source of pain and develop a list of possible causes. By process of elimination and outcome measures, we will then determine what the most likely cause is, and develop a treatment plan.
Movement Analysis & Screening
Provision of movement analysis assists in capabilities such as stability, mobility, symmetry, balance and strength – thus, patterns such as pushing, pulling, squatting, twisting and a variety of many more are allocated accordingly. Assessing and improving your movement is very crucial, hence providing you with services like Lower Back Screening, Rehabilitation, Functional Movement Analysis Screening, Neck Assessments, Rowing Analysis and Knee Stability Assessments.
Injury Prevention & Management
We help prevent, manage and rehabilitate injury, illness or disability, which is done through education, advice, exercise and manual therapy. This results into a number of benefits, like reduced risk of certain types of cancers, reduced blood pressure and improved mental health and wellbeing.
Clinical Pilates is a mindful strength and conditioning program designed to target postural muscles to improve core stability and posture.

Dry Needling is a Western technique stemmed from acupuncture to tread myofascial pain. Myofascial pain is pain that produces local and referred pain to parts of the body. It is often felt as a “ropey” or hardened area within a muscle, usually accompanied with tenderness. It involves insertion of a needle into the trigger point until they are inactivated. This allows increased blood-flow to the area and a production of chemicals released by the central nervous area to enhance analgesia. Often results are quick-acting, leaving the patient with reduced pain and more range of motion.
Cupping therapy is medicine in which special cups are put onto your skin for a few minutes, creating suction and in turn, helping with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

Give us a call or book in today to discuss whether we will be able to assist with anything else.
Rehabilitation involves developing a treatment plan and home exercise program to help the individual maintain current function, restore movement and hopefully progress their mobility, movement and strength further. Programs can be developed before or after surgery to help prepare an individual for strength and movement deficits.
