Our Physiotherapists look after many patients from the Cheltenham, Moorabbin, Mentone, Highett, Hampton, Black Rock, Beaumaris and Heatherton suburbs and are experts in human movement and function. They use a science based approach to patient assessment, treatment and rehabilitation with the aim to help decrease your pain and restore your function as quickly as possible.
World leading assessment including the unique Movement Assessment Tool that will be used to help objectively measure your movement. Assessment may also include manual muscle testing, slow motion video capture, cutting edge force plate analysis and strength testing in our purpose built rehab gym.
Some treatment methods we may use include soft tissue massage, muscle energy techniques, joint manipulation, Dry Needling, Kinesio Taping and many more. However, at the Injury Rehab Centre treatment will quickly move beyond the traditional table-based therapy, often taking you into more functional and upright positions using the True Stretch system.
Research shows that 98% of patients will not perform their rehab and home exercise program correctly, often resulting in difficulty achieving goals of decreasing pain and reducing injury. We recognise this at the Injury Rehab Centre and have designed our clinic to allow us to run both individual and group rehabilitation classes to help you achieve your goals and get you back to what you need, want and love to do.
We are at the forefront of performance testing and injury prevention in Australia, a topic which our Physiotherapists have been invited to speak at several conferences about. Our testing technologies have previoudsly been confined to University biomechanics labs and elite sporting environments, now we bring them to you.
We specialise in sport specific assessments, including
Co-directors Andrew and Steve’s own unique creation the M.A.T( Movement Assessment Tool). The M.A.T is currently being used by over 1500+ professionals around the world and in elite sporting environment such as the AFL, EPL, ERU and on the men’s and women’s golf and tennis tours allowing it’s users to put any number on any movement.
Allows us to test and measure static strength of most muscles to gauge the capacity of your muscle to resist and generate force.
Force plates are measuring instruments that measure the ground reaction forces generated by a body standing on or moving across them and can be used to quantify balance, gait and other parameters of biomechanics. It allows us to objectively assess metrics such as; peak power output, starting strength and jump height. All of this data allows us to better manage your condition and improve patient outcomes.
Slow motion video analysis allows us to break-down any movement frame by frame to get more information about the quality or the technique of movement and obtain objective data, such as angles and speeds of movement through the kinetic chain.
All this helps us deliver on our motto at the Functional Movement Group, which is ‘if you aren’t measuring, YOU’RE GUESSING’.
