From Pain and Injury
Rather than simply treating the symptoms of acute or persistent pain or injury, at Barefoot Physiotherapy we utilise our unique Treatment System to find the root cause of your problem, so you can get back to living your life to the full.
Rather than simply treating the symptoms of acute or persistent pain or injury, at Barefoot Physiotherapy we utilise our unique treatment system to find the root cause of your problem, so you can get back to living your life to the full.
When you’re in pain, you want relief… and not just temporary relief. To achieve that, we need to look beyond the symptoms to find the root cause of the pain, limitation or discomfort you may be experiencing right now.
Pinpointing the cause is sometimes straightforward, and it sometimes takes time. As we uncover the cause, we apply a range of proven treatment techniques to help your body move the way it’s meant to. This approach of treating the cause of pain is the fastest way to properly rehabilitate – as the athletes who frequent our sports injury clinic can tell you.
Our goal is providing long-term, sustainable relief, so you can get back to doing what you love – with confidence.
We give you the focused time, care and attention you need to get better:
Our holistic therapy approach is based on a partnership between you and us. This starts by us truly knowing and understanding your story and why you have come to Barefoot for help.
We then use specific nerve and orthopaedic tests to determine our initial hands on treatment that starts you on the road to recovery, be it back pain physiotherapy or posture training.
As you progress we utilise our full body assessment and testing to determine the root cause of your problem. We then treat it, teach you how to treat it and teach you how to take care of it for now and the future.
Throughout this process we will incorporate postural retraining, strength work and individualised education to ensure you understand what is best for your body.
If this is the type of deep collaboration you’re looking for, then you’re the perfect fit for us.
Treatment doesn’t begin and end within the four walls of our clinic.
If you need us to assess your posture at your workplace, we’ll be there. If you’d like us to collaborate with your personal trainer on which specific exercises to focus on (and avoid), we’re happy to help.
Working in with your broader “support team” is one of the best ways in which we can support you back to optimum health.
And if for any reason you’re not getting results, we’ll work with you to find alternatives. We’ll closely monitor your progress, with the goal of getting you out of pain and back doing what you love. Our success is measured by your results, nothing else.
Our holistic approach treats the whole person. For example, you may be suffering accumulative strain, or back pain that originates elsewhere. If we just treat your back pain and not the underlying issue, you may experience the frustration of recurring problems and chronic pain. Our goal is zero pain, freedom of movement and empowered patients.
Your back is one of the most common areas that we treat - but this pain is usually triggered by something else. Not only will we treat your pain we'll get to the bottom of where it came from including looking at your daily habits, sleeping positions and posture.
Neck pain is another common injury that's caused by other factors or injuries. Treatment will often help to relieve any pain, but we will also investigate what lifestyle changes you can make to ensure you're not straining your neck.
Shoulder pain or injury is one of the most common that we see manifesting in pain and weakness of the joint. The shoulder is a vital part of your body, so treating this pain also means treating the cause and strengthening the area for long term rehabilitation.
The smallest amount of swelling or pain in your knee can cause a lot of issues in the rest of your body to compensate. We'll not only treat this pain, and the root cause, but help you to prevent this compensation while you recover.
Hip injuries can be common at all ages due to the complexity of this area of your body. Pain in this area will affect your lower body, including knees, feet and ankles. We will not only treat the pain, but determine if the root cause is joint, muscle or nerve for long-term health.
This is an area of your body that receives the highest pressure and impact and can cause injury in muscle, ligament, bones or joint. This is one of the most important parts of your body because your feet are your base and can determine how you move.
