PHYSIOTHERAPY:

Physiotherapists are principally concerned with the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of muscular and spinal disorders.

At Echuca Moama Physiotherapy, we utilise our knowledge of the normal movement and function of bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments to determine if they are performing effectively.

The use of manual (hands on) treatments including joint mobilisation and manipulation, massage, targeted exercises and advice aims to restore normal movement and function.

Physiotherapy can provide benefit to a range of people, from elite athletes to weekend warriors, from manual workers to older persons coping with the ageing process.

SPECIALIST SPORTS PHYSIOTHERAPY:

Specialist Sports Physiotherapists have undertaken intensive training at an advanced level and undergone rigorous examinations to be awarded fellowship in the Australian College of Physiotherapists (FACP).  This recognises a Specialist Sports Physiotherapists as possessing the highest level of clinical skills and as leaders in the management of sporting conditions.

The skill of the Specialist lies in the ability to assess, treat and manage complex, difficult and, at times, multifactorial sporting problems.

Echuca Moama Physiotherapy Director, Sean Slattery (FACP) is a Specialist Sports Physiotherapist.

MUSCULOSKELETAL PHYSIOTHERAPY:

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists have expertise in the treatment of musculoskeletal (muscle and joint) conditions and employ advanced clinical assessment and diagnosis methods.

Musculoskeletal physiotherapists and have been trained in a broader range of treatment techniques, including manipulation and hold a Masters of Physiotherapy qualification.  Members of the Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists Australia (MPA) are world-leaders in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of muscle and joint problems, especially spinal conditions that commonly cause lower back pain and neck pain.
