Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy

Our musculoskeletal specialists have undergone additional training that allows them to use their expertise to assess, diagnose and treat injuries to your muscles, joints, bones, and nerves at a high level.

Common conditions treated using musculoskeletal physiotherapy include hip, knee, and shoulder injuries, as well as back and neck pain. Treatment usually consists of hands-on techniques, such as massage, exercise, joint mobilisation, and manipulation.

Manipulative Physiotherapy

Another specialty at our physiotherapy clinic in O’Connor is manipulative physiotherapy which concerns the management and treatment of conditions associated with the spine (neuro-musculoskeletal conditions).

These conditions include headaches, numbness, pins and needles, sciatica, vertigo, and neck and back problems. Treatment involves a range of hands-on therapies to aid your recovery, including high-velocity thrusts to manipulate joints that are stiff and resistant to a full range of movement.

Sports Injuries

Our physio services in the Fremantle area include the diagnosis, assessment, management, treatment, and prevention of sports injuries. Common injuries treated at our clinic include ACL tears, shin splints, sprains and strains, Achilles tendon injuries, pulled hamstrings, rotator cuff injuries, fractures, and dislocations.

Our sports physiotherapists have a special interest in shoulder, hip, ankle and knee injuries that are frequently suffered by athletes. Treatment focuses on relieving pain, maximising functionality, and preventing the recurrence of the injury.

Post-op Rehab

New Wave Therapy also offers post-op rehab at our physiotherapy clinic in O’Connor. Many rehab patients have experienced shoulder reconstructions, rotator cuff repairs, tendon repairs, hip replacements, ACL repairs, ankle reconstructions or spinal fusions.

We develop a customised rehabilitation plan that’s tailored to your specific needs with the goal of speeding up your safe recovery post-surgery.

Complex Pain

Pain is termed complex when there are many different and connected parts which contribute to it persisting. Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), is an example of a complex chronic pain condition that develops unexpectedly and usually affects an arm or leg. Often this condition follows a recent injury but in a small number of cases, there’s no identifiable cause.

Diagnosis is one of exclusion and treatment at our physiotherapy clinic in O’Connor is focused on pain management, along with hands-on therapies to maintain flexibility, strength and function.

Arthritis

If you live locally, then you’ll appreciate having an experienced physio in the Fremantle area who can treat your arthritis, helping you maintain an active social life and maintain your independence at home.

Treatment focuses on improving muscle strength and maximising the normal range of movement in your joints. Whether you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis, we help you regain your confidence and improve your quality of life.

Dry Needling

At our physiotherapy clinic in O’Connor, we offer a combination of classical Japanese acupuncture and modern dry needling. We find that this combination is ideal for treating a wide range of sports injuries and musculoskeletal conditions. This hands-on therapy involves inserting exceptionally fine, stainless steel needles into trigger points along your muscles and tissues to reduce pain and improve movement and functionality.

Conditions that respond well to this therapy include headaches, calf cramps, whiplash, sciatica, neck and back pain, osteoarthritis and many more.

Exercise Rehabilitation

Have you experienced a recent injury or surgical operation? Do you want to improve your fitness or sports performance? Maybe you just need help with your daily living tasks? A customised, exercise rehabilitation program provided by an experienced physio in the Fremantle area helps you achieve your goals, quickly and safely.

From Clinical Pilates to strength and conditioning, resistance training and athletic performance, we design a program that results in a strong, energised and healthy body.

Specialist Physiotherapy Review

As expert physios in the Fremantle area, we are often asked to provide a specialist physiotherapy review by GPs, insurers or other health providers. This review provides an alternative opinion about a patient’s diagnosis, management, treatment and prognosis.

Often it’s required because a patient is not improving as expected but can also be necessary because the condition is complex and a diagnosis has not been confirmed.

Enjoy Better Health at Next Wave Therapy

Physiotherapy not only helps people recover from injuries or surgery, but it also helps them deal with chronic conditions that negatively affect their quality of life. We aim to optimise your mobility, functionality, strength and endurance so that you can live your life the way you want and on your terms.
