Physiotherapy

First appointment
  • Your first physiotherapy appointment with Unique Physiotherapy will start with a consultation/assessment, gathering important information about your problem and its affects on your daily activity.
  • Unique Physiotherapy will also look at your medical history as this will ultimately decide if there are any medical reasons why treatment would be unsuitable.
  • The next step is to look at specific movements and perform diagnostic tests to decipher the cause and nature.
  • A hands-on physical therapy session will follow your assessment, identifying your pain and work towards rectifying your complaint.
  • The physiotherapy treatment may consist of manipulation, soft tissue work, stretching and a rehabilitation plan all relevant to your pain.
  • It is to be noted that deep tissue techniques may/can cause some soreness which will resolve within a matter of days.
Follow up appointment
  • Unique Physiotherapy will reassess movement patterns and diagnostic tests to document your progress.
  • Hands-on treatment will then be performed.
  • Follow up appointments are advised to take place within 7 days of your initial appointment to support any healing and/or soft tissues adaptations.
How many sessions would you expect to have?

This all depends on the nature of the complaint. Our patients typically report a resolution within 4-5 sessions, some quicker, however long standing and complex cases may take longer.

Postural Restoration(in a nutshell)

Human bodies are not symmetrical. We know some of us have one foot larger than the other; our liver is in the right low abdomen and balanced out by our heart in the upper left chest; and the right half of our diaphragm is larger and stronger than the left side. The hemispheres of the brain, nerves, lungs, blood vessels, muscles and vision systems are not equal from side to side.

Postural restoration is a type of physiotherapy that seeks to explore and explain the science of postural adaptations, asymmetrical patterns and the influence of polyarticular chains of muscles.

Our mission is based on the development of an innovative treatment that addresses the primary contributions of postural kinematic movement dysfunction. We figure out which 'dominant' or 'overused' muscles in the body need to be turned off or inhibited. We then give specific exercise and techniques including those that address breathing and the alignment of the body that can help reposition the pelvis, ribcage and other parts of the body.It improves bodily functions and allows higher performance levels in both younger years all the way through to over 80's.

IASTM

Instrumental Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation (IASTM)

The primary focus of IASTM is to create controlled micro-trauma to an area of the body to elicit an inflammatory response. You need a little inflammation to heal. IASTM can also help reorganise the direction of the fibres, thus increasing the resilience of your muscle, tendon or ligament. Because scar tissue can inhibit a muscle from lengthening properly, IASTM can help to improve dysfunctional movement patterns that led to the injury in the first place. It is also less invasive than dry needling, acupuncture and trigger point injections.

Dry-Cupping

An application of cups using negative pressure on certain areas of the body that encourages the removal of stagnant blood to promote healthy blood flow in areas of inflammation. It is also a useful tool for stretching fascia and breaking down scar tissue. The different techniques used are:

Static – cups are left in their position

Slide – oil is put on skin and cups are slid over surface of the skin like a massage

Active movement – cups are placed on the affected area and the patient moves i.e. cups placed on hamstrings and patient flexes/extends their knee.
