WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY?

Physiotherapy is a clinical health science and profession that aims to help you recover from injury, reduce pain and stiffness, increase mobility and prevent further injury. Physiotherapists are trained to assess your condition, diagnose the problem, help you understand what’s wrong and create you a personalised treatment plan.
Your treatment plan will take into account your lifestyle, activities and general health.

PAEDIATRICS

MASSAGE

Regional areas are often at a disadvantage when it comes to Paediatric services, that is why at Enhance we have completed further training in an attempt to bridge this gap. We liaise with the Maternal Child Health Nurses who do a brilliant job in the region, so that we can be as proactive as possible with your child’s growth and development.

Common conditions we assess include:

  •  Plagiocephaly

  •  Torticollis

  •  Developmental Hip Dysplasia

  •  Motor Delay

  •  In toeing

Our Physiotherapists have undertaken greater than four years of dedicated university study on the human body.

This means that they can clinically modify their massage techniques

to cater to any pre-existing conditions, injuries or pain.

The requirement for such expertise and professional knowledge is essential in ensuring you get the best results out of your massage
