Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy

Musculoskeletal physiotherapy techniques (joint, muscle, and fascia stretching, mobilizing and manipulation) are often used for relief of pain, swelling and other uncomfortable symptoms.

The International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists (IFOMPT) defines manual therapy techniques as:

“Skilled hand movements intended to produce any or all of the following effects: improve tissue extensibility; increase range of motion of the joint complex; mobilize or manipulate soft tissues and joints; induce relaxation; change muscle function; modulate pain; and reduce soft tissue swelling, inflammation or movement restriction.”

Our physiotherapists have years of experience and thus a very wide repertoire of manual skills. These include manipulation, manual traction, joint mobilisation, muscle energy techniques and myofascial treatment. Our physiotherapists are all very hands on when they treat. Manual therapy can help spinal decompression to provide relief from Degenerative Disc Disease, Nerve Root Impingement, Sciatica, and Stenosis, and can be helpful for different types of Arthritis, Frozen Shoulders, and Chronic Pain.

Sports Physiotherapy

Sports Physiotherapists are experienced physiotherapists who have undertaken further training at a post-graduate University level and completed examinations by the Australian Physiotherapy Association to account for their advanced standing in the profession. We have several Sports Physiotherapists at Physiologix.

Hip Physiologix

Physiologix has long had a special interest in treating hip injuries. Our staff have been part of many research trials investigating different hip conditions, have assisted in running hip courses around Australia for Physiotherapists, and have years of experience treating hips.

Shoulder Physiotherapy

The shoulder is a very complex joint. Pain can be significant, disabling and extensive. Our physiotherapists have decades of experience between them. Several of our staff are involved in elite sport, including tennis, a game rife with shoulder injuries. Our staff are on the cutting edge of the latest research and rehabilitation concepts.

Neck, Headache, Migrane, and Vestibular Physiotherapy

Treatment of head (headaches) and neck pain, and dizziness or balance issues (including vertigo and BPPV), is extremely complex and requires an advanced level of physio expertise. All ages and all types of person may be affected.

Neck pain can become long term, or chronic in many cases. There are many reasons why this may be. Your issues may have stemmed from whiplash in a car accident, or gradually build up over time. Your Physiologix physio will help to go through the many different causes with you, carrying out special tests and asking lots of questions to help provide the answers we need and therefore give us the direction with which to go with physiotherapy.

Cervicogenic headaches and cervicogenic dizziness, means that your symptoms arise from your neck. Similarly as with chronic neck pain, specific questions and tests carried out by your physiologix physio will help to clarify that this is the case.

Dizziness and vertigo are different. Your physio will help to assess exactly what is happening to then be able to advise and treat you appropriately. Each condition has very specific rehabilitation exercises that can help.

BPPV – benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is another dizziness type issue that is related to the semicircular canals for balance in the ears. Treatment can have immediate and excellent results. Your Physiologix physio will help to teach you exercises you can then often self manage future flare ups with.


There are then many treatment strategies that need to be used to help improve your symptoms. This may range from and include:

  • Hands on physiotherapy
  • Specific strength and stability exercises
  • Postural changes: this includes analysis and change of work, home and resting positions.
  • Specific head, neck and eye co-ordination exercises
  • Specific vestibular exercises
  • Relaxation strategies – learning how to relax over-tight muscles

Our recommended articles:

Knee, Foot and Ankle Physiotherapy

Understanding the joints of the lower limb and how they function together requires an advanced knowledge. Physiologix and its staff has been involved in many research studies of this area and can bring you the most up to date in treatment to ensure your recovery.

Kids and Adolescent Physiotherapy

Working with Kids and adolescents requires a very specific knowledge not only of the injuries these age group can experience that adults don’t, but also a much deeper understanding of the psychological impact their injury and situation is having on them, which is again very, very different to that of an adult.

Tennis Physiotherapy

At Physiologix, we are the industry leaders for tennis related physiotherapy in Brisbane, ranging for working at the Australian Tennis Open, Pro tour events, Queensland National Academy of Tennis, and with players of all ages and levels of ability.

Sports Screening

Be faster, stronger and more agile!

Screening is used to assess an athlete/perfomer for areas that need to be improved to enhance performance and reduce injury. This may be for the gumby right up to the elite athlete. It may be in childhood, adolescence or adulthood. In sport, every little bit makes a difference. Whether it is getting to that ball, having that extra bit of power or skill in what you do, or even just staying fit and injury free for the entire season.

Most people train to some level for their chosen activity or sport. However most people neglect that tennis requires flexibility, muscle strength, endurance, agility, power, acceleration, speed and good aerobic and anaerobic fitness to name a few. It is hard to sprint at 100% if you lack full ankle range of motion or don’t have the core to hold your pelvis together while your legs drive. You cant hit a controlled cross court winner or a great golf drive if you lack the core and shoulder stability. What is even worse is when you see people running out of steam three quarters of the way through a match……they lose the ability to attack, and become weak on the defence.

As athletes, parents and coaches it is extremely hard to pick up on these inefficiencies and even harder to be able to effectively fix them.

The Sports Specific Performance Screen (SSPS) is a revolutionary approach to peak performance. The SSPS compiles baseline measurements off the back of a series of specialised tests. These tests combine to give you a tailored ‘Performance Profile’ of your physical joint and muscle capabilities and how well your body moves during basic and complex motor skills.

An individualised home exercise program can be made for the athlete that targets the relevant finding from the SSPS process. With guidance from the physiotherapist the athlete will carry out the specific exercise program which may include strengthening, stretches, motor skill learning and sports specific movement retraining.

Follow-up screens are also recommended to monitor improvement and make sure the athlete is continually being challenged.

For more information on our Sports Specific Performance Screen please contact our reception staff or email the clinic directly.

Dry needling

Dry Needling is the use of acupuncture needles to manipulate trigger points within a muscle. It is a specialised tool, used to deactivate trigger points and thus increase range of movement & decrease pain. It is used to treat many musculoskeletal conditions including back pain, sporting injuries, hip pain and headaches.
