Physiotherapy

Injuries and niggles can happen to all of us and when they do, our experienced physiotherapists are here to help. At SiSU Windsor, our physios will help get you feeling better and keep you injury-free with a comprehensive treatment and rehabilitation plan that is tailored to you.

How physiotherapy can help you

As experts on the body, our physiotherapists know all about the joints, muscles and nerves and how they work. That means when things go wrong, we’re the right people to help you out.

Here at SiSU, our aim is to make you feel better fast. At your first appointment, we take the time to really get to know you and your body. We learn all about your concerns as well as your health and fitness goals. This helps us create the best plan for you.

Next we do a full body assessment. This allows us to pinpoint the underlying cause of your pain and any additional factors that might be contributing too.

We always make sure we treat you as part of your first session; after all, you came to us to feel better! We use a hands-on approach to treatment which includes mobilisation, massage therapy, trigger point release and movement facilitation.

To finish off, we’ll show you some exercises to do at home, so that you can continue to make improvements in between sessions. Together, we’ll decide on the best treatment plan to get you pain free and achieving your goals.

Conditions we treat

Back pain

If you suffer from back pain you’re not alone. Back pain would be the number one reason people come and see us. In Windsor, our physio at SiSU helps people with back pain everyday. In fact, we’re seeing these complaints even more as more people work from their home offices. Another common cause of back pain at the moment is changes in exercise. After taking time off from your usual gym routines and pilates classes, going back at where you left off can be too much for some.

Whether you’re experiencing back pain for the first time or you feel like you put your back out more often than you’d like, you can work one-on-one with our experienced physiotherapists to get to the root cause of your condition, fast.

Not only will our physiotherapists work to provide pain relief in your first session, we will teach you how you can help between sessions. We provide advice, exercises and other treatment solutions to help you feel better for the long term. We can even give you advice on the best set-up for your home office. This can prevent those pains re-occurring or worsening as you continue to work from home.

If you’ve hurt your lower back from exercise or activities such as gardening or doing the housework it might be because of your technique. Our team are experts when it comes to movement. We can teach you the best ways to lift and move and even design a rehab program for you to do at home. This can help you get back into doing the things you love safer and faster.

Neck pain

Neck pain is one of the most common reasons people come to see our physio at SiSU Windsor.

People experience neck pain in lots of different ways. Some people describe neck pain as a tightness in the neck or across the shoulders, which is usually due to changes in posture. Others might get referred pain in their arms, head and even jaw!

Neck pain can make it hard to do many things such as focus on work, drive or even sleep. Given that these are things we need to do every day it is important to find someone who can help you reduce your pain and get you back to feeling better, fast.

Recently we’ve seen an increase in neck pain due to more people working from home. As part of your treatment, our physiotherapists will work with you to identify the underlying cause of your neck pain. After all, the best way to prevent the pain coming back is to know what caused it in the first place. If it is your home office set up or something else, such as your sleeping position, we can help you make the changes you need to prevent the pain from coming back.

Shoulder, elbow, wrist ( including trapezius pain)

Here at SiSU, we treat lots of upper limb pains. More specifically, shoulder pain, elbow pain and wrist pain. We use our arms everyday and so it isn’t surprising that sometimes we can over do it. Indeed, shoulder pain is often a result of an overuse or repetitive injury. This can make treating arm pain difficult, because its hard to rest something we use all the time!

The most common terms people use to describe their arm pain when they see a physio at SiSU Windsor include:

  • Rotator cuff tears/ strains. The rotator cuff muscles control shoulder movement and can sometimes become injured.
  • Bursitis or shoulder impingement. As the name suggests, this is often caused by something getting pinched or squished, causing inflammation.
  • Tennis elbow and golfers elbow. These are pains on the inside or outside of the elbow and often aggravated by activities where you have to grip something ( like a tennis racquet or a golf club!)
  • Weak wrists – people use this term to describe wrist pain usually when they’re trying to push pressure on their wrists for example, when doing a push up.

If you or someone you know has had a recent shoulder, elbow or wrist injury or a pain that has been around for a while, please contact us. Live or work in Windsor? Our physio at SiSU is available for early and late appointments so we’ll always be here when you need us.

Hip, knee, ankle

Here at SiSU, we treat lots of lower limb concerns including hip pain, knee pain and ankle pain. Our legs work hard all day long whether we’re standing still or moving around, so sometimes they need a little help to get them feeling 100%. In fact, it isn’t uncommon for people to have pain in both legs (people often tell us they have a bad knee and a worse knee!) or to have pain in multiple joints on one leg, like knee pain and a history of ankle sprains.

The most common terms people use to describe their leg pain when they see a physio at SiSU Windsor include:

  • Patella-Femoral pain, which simply means pain at the front of the knee. 
  • ITB syndrome. Often feels like pain on the outside of the knee and commonly associated with repetitive exercises like running.
  • Knee ligament injuries. These include ligaments like the medial and lateral collateral ligaments (MCL and LCL) and the anterior cruciate and posterior cruciate ligaments (ACL and PCL).
  • Hip or Knee arthritis. People often think of arthritis as wear and tear or problems with the cartilage of the joint. Occasionally the knee or hip can feel like it is bone on bone.
  • Hip tightness. Often people who sit at a desk all day feel like their hips get really tight.
  • Ankle sprains or rolled ankles. A strain, sprain or tear in the ligaments of the ankle can often cause pain, reduced strength and reduced balance.

If you or someone you know has had a recent hip, knee or ankle injury or a pain that has been around for a while, please contact us. Live or work in Windsor? Our physio at SiSU is available for early and late appointments so we’ll always be here when you need us.

Nerve pain ( including sciatica )

Nerve pain is different to other types of pain. We also experience nerve pain differently to others, which can make it confusing to know if what you’re feeing is nerve pain or not.

People can describe their nerve pain in lots of different ways including burning, shooting or stabbing pain. Others get pins and needles or prickling type pains and some get a reduced sensation or numbness. Nerve pain can become difficult to bear which can lead to other problems like exhaustion and mood changes.

The most well known nerve to cause pain is the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve, which starts at your lower back, travels through your glute muscles (bottom) and down the back your leg and is a common source of pain for many people.

If you’re suffering from sciatic nerve pain, you may experience anything from mild to severe pain in your lower back, bottom, thigh, hip, or leg, and sometimes even in your feet and toes. You may also experience weakness, numbness or pins and needles in your leg or foot.

While some cases of sciatic pain can resolve on their own over time, physiotherapy can help accelerate your recovery and, just as importantly, prevent the pain from re-occurring. Our physio at SiSU Windsor can help you recover from nerve pain. We use a range of hands-on techniques to relieve your pain, restore your movement, improve your mobility and prevent future pain flareups. Not all sciatic pain is the same, so we ensure we understand exactly how sciatic nerve pain affects you to provide optimal treatment.

Muscle Pain

I don’t think I’ve ever met someone who hasn’t had some kind of muscle ache or pain at least once in their life. Many people get muscle pain after activities like a big session at the gym or if they’ve done a big day of garnering for the first time in a while. This kind of muscle pain is usually localised, doesn’t stop you from doing anything and goes away on its own in a couple of days.

However sometimes we can have an injury or condition that causes our muscles to become painful. Strains and sprains are often used to describe muscle pain, as is a pulled muscle or muscle tear. These types of injuries can be more debilitating and take longer to get better. Our physio at SiSU Windsor can help you recover from a muscle injury and get you back to life as soon as possible.

Firstly, your physio will help reduce your pain and make it easier to move around. Once you’re feeling better, we can then develop a rehabilitation plan which will get you moving well. Generally this is done through an exercise plan that you can do with us here at SiSU, at your usual gym or at home on your own.

Chronic Pain

If you’re struggling with chronic pain, the physio at SiSU Windsor can to lend a helping hand. In fact, we have the only dually practising Physiotherapist and Pharmacist in Australia working with us and as such can offer a unique approach to managing your chronic pain.

We know that chronic pain is different for everyone. In fact, chronic pain is more than just the physical things going on in your body, but also makes changes to the central nervous system as well. That means chronic pain actually changes the way your brain thinks and feels things.

We will work closely with you to understand your pain and how it is affecting your day to day life. Together, we’ll work to develop an individual approach to getting you feeling better. This means we will take the time to understand what works best for you and your body.

Posture, core strength, better movement

No matter what reason people come to see a physio at SiSU Windsor, there is a common theme to their health and fitness goals. We know you want to be pain free, but most people also want to improve their posture, core strength or be able to move better.

Posture, core strength and better movement have often been labeled the foundations of a healthy body and for good reason! They help to reduce the risk of injury both during exercise and in day to day life.

As part of your full body assessment, your physio will assess your posture, core strength and the way you move. They can then identify things that could be contributing to your pain and help you find ways to improve them.

We can then develop a personalised program for you to work on your goals at home. Alternatively you could see our personal trainers for some 1:1 session to really boost your results. We also offer classes that specifically target core and balance. To see our latest timetable click here.
