Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is the use of water, both internally and externally and at varying temperatures, for health purposes. Also known as water therapy, hydrotherapy includes such treatments as saunas, steam baths, foot baths, contrast therapy, hot and cold showers, and water therapy. Hydrotherapy is used to treat several conditions and ailments including osteoarthritis, athletic injury and rheumatoid arthritis. The warmth of the water allows your muscles to relax and eases the pain in your joints, helping you to exercise. In addition, the water supports your weight, which helps to relieve pain and increase the range of movement of your joints. The water can also be used to provide resistance to moving your joints. By pushing your arms and legs against the water, you can also improve your muscle strength. Our hydrotherapy treatment programs can help improve a number of conditions, including:

  • Back pain/sciatica/lumbar instability
  • Whiplash and other neck pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Tendinopathy
  • Balance/coordination problems
  • Shoulder and arm pain
  • Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia
  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Back and pelvic pain during pregnancy
  • Work and accident-related injuries
  • Rehabilitation after bone fractures, joint replacement or tendon repair

Workers Compensation & CTP INJURIES

Physiotherapists are registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and approved by SIRA to provide treatment and facilitate a safe and durable recovery at work. IYM Physiotherapy is WorkCover approved meaning they are trained to treat injured workers within a compensation environment. Our focus is on achieving a safe and durable return to work and our physiotherapists follow workers compensation physiotherapy administrative procedures developed in conjunction with the Australian Physiotherapy Association. We have a proven track record of providing effective, evidence based programs that are benchmarked with validated outcome measures. We provide specific treatment programs, which varies according to each client's requirement and are designed according to the injured workers physical capacity/injury, work demands and the goals of their program. When dealing with WorkCover injury claims IYM Physiotherapy practitioners regularly communicate between the nominated treating doctor, insurers, employers and any other necessary health professionals. By working in conjunction with the above parties with regular feedback and providing relevant information we smooth the return to work process and ensure that you have the right support. Some of the common workers compensation physiotherapy injuries we see include patients complaining of back and neck pain, shoulder and knee pain as well as foot, ankle, elbow and wrist pain. WorkCover claims may include patients receiving treatment for injuries that are the result of a specific incident or for injury from a repetitive or prolonged action causing an overuse injury. In order to begin treatment, you are required to bring your WorkCover referral from your doctor indicating physiotherapy treatment has been prescribed. Once we have this referral, your worker's compensation claim number and have confirmed this with your workers compensation insurance company we will bill your insurer directly.

Post Surgery Rehabilitation

For many illnesses and injuries, surgery is often a necessary solution and, depending on the severity of the illness or injury in question. However, physical therapy after a surgery can actually help the recovery and healing process Postoperative, or post-surgery, recovery or rehabilitation is often divided into 3 main stages: The first stage is when the body is ultimately immobilized as the body goes through a basic healing process. Here, swelling will go down and the initial pain of surgery will subside. Afterwards the patient's physical therapist will work with him or her to design a plan involving progressive exercises that will begin to strengthen the body, restoring the patient's range of motion and overall stability. With time, the patient will be able to return to their normal, pre-surgery level of physical activity, whatever that may have been for them. This is the ultimate goal of postoperative rehabilitation, and physical therapy as a whole. There are several benefits to going through postoperative rehabilitation with a physical therapist, including:

  • Proper Healing & Faster Recovery Time
  • Regain Mobility
  • Improved circulation
  • Improved posture and balance
  • Reduction in pain and discomfort
  • Improved flexibility
  • Reduced risk for postoperative pulmonary complications (PCCs)

Sports Massage Therapy

Massage therapy has been proven to improve the flow of blood and lymph (fluid in lymph glands, part of immune system), to reduce muscular tension or flaccidity, to affect the nervous system through stimulation or sedation, and to enhance tissue healing. Our Massage therapy program includes Remedial Massage, Trigger-point therapy, Deep Tissue Massage, Myofascial release techniques by IYM's accredited Massage Therapist. Therapy is not limited to the treatment of injuries and can also be used to relieve stress and tension. Some of the benefits of massage therapy are:

  • Reduced muscle tension and stiffness
  • Increased joint and limb flexibility and range of motion
  • Increased ease and efficiency of movement
  • Relief of points of tension and overall stress; inducing relaxation
  • Deeper and easier breathing
  • Improved blood circulation and movement of lymph
  • Faster healing of soft tissue injuries, such as pulled muscles and sprained ligaments
  • Reduced pain and swelling related to injuries
  • Nourishment of skin
  • Improved posture by changing tension patterns that affect posture
  • Reduced emotional or physical stress and anxiety

Acupuncture & Cupping

Both cupping therapy and acupuncture are used to treat a broad range of symptoms, relieve pain and promote healing. At IYM, our professionals work closely with every patient to determine what treatment type, or combination, will best address their health goals. Cupping can be used as a standalone massage treatment, but it can also be combined with acupuncture in one treatment. The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system, which works exceptionally well in the treatment of high blood pressure. It pulls tension up, which can then be released by using acupuncture. Acupuncture involves inserting very thin, sterile needles through the skin at strategic points on the body. Acupuncture is based on the concept of "qi," which is the energy used to address pain and mobility problems. The practice is used to relieve pain, but more recently it has found a place in overall wellness promotion – including stress management. Specialities:
