We offer physiotherapy in Kingsland and Morningside, Auckland.

We embrace the philosophy that our clients are capable of helping themselves with the right professional guidance.

The nature of our treatment is to get our clients to a stage where they can maintain independence without the need for on-going treatment where ever possible.

Manual therapy

Joint mobilisation/manipulation- involves skilled application of hands on techniques to reduce pain and restore normal movement. It can include a controlled fast movement of a joint which often produces an audible clicking sound.

Soft tissue massage/Trigger point release – Hands on massage and or sustained pressure on specific tight areas of muscle or knots which will increase circulation to the area, reduce tension and make you feel better!

Here at Kingsland Physio, Janaka and Helen are trained in dry needling which can be used to complement conventional Physiotherapy treatments and works wonders for releasing tight muscles. Acupuncture can be used to help reduce your pain by helping release the body’s natural painkillers and reducing muscle spasm. Acupuncture can be used to treat many conditions including:

  • Lower Back Pain including sciatic pain
  • Tendon Injuries – for example: Tennis elbow, Achilles Tendinopathy, Shoulder Tendonitis
  • Muscular Pain
  • Arthritis
  • Sporting Injuries
  • Head aches

 

Muscle Imbalance/Postural correction

This involves identifying and correcting any faulty movement patterns you maybe doing on a daily basis without knowing it. We will check your posture, muscle length and alignment to make sure everything is how it should be to prevent injuries and improve performance.

Your first session will be 45 minutes long so will start treatment straight away. This will be hands on treatment backed up by the latest research. Our physios are continually doing courses and keeping up to date with the latest research in order to give you the best treatment possible. We will talk through a treatment plan with you based on your goals and what you want to achieve. You will then be given a home exercise program to start and we will know if you have been doing them or not!

What to wear…

To ensure the best assessment and treatment, the injured body site will need to be accessible for therapy. Robes, shorts and towels are available to use, however, patients are encouraged to bring comfortable and appropriate clothes such as shorts and a singlet.
