When you injure a muscle, joint, tendon or ligament causing pain, stiffness or restricted movement, your doctor will most likely recommend a good Physiotherapist. After surgery or hospitalisation, physio’s are experts at rehabilitation and helping you get back to full health. Physio’s are trained to assess, diagnose, treat and help prevent a broad range of health conditions and movement disorders.
General practitioners refer more patients to physiotherapy than any other healthcare profession. That being said, you do not require a doctors referral to see a physiotherapist. Simply book an appointment online or call and make an appointment that is suitable for you.
Your first appointment will be a longer appointment allowing your physio to understand your injury history, assess your condition and make an accurate diagnosis. At this point your practitioner will suggest some suitable treatment options and make some recommendations. Treatment of most musculoskeletal injuries or aggravations will generally require 3-6 visits, more if the condition is severe.
Your treatment could involve a combination of soft tissue techniques, manual therapy, lifestyle advice, therapeutic cold laser, homes exercises, education and electro-physical modalities.
Our practitioners are both holistic (focused on your whole body, not just your symptoms) and integrated (they work as a team where advantageous) in their treatment approach. Your physiotherapist works alongside chiropractic, podiatry, acupuncture and remedial massage and often co-treat to improve outcomes, at no extra cost to you.
Utilising assessment and treatment techniques derived from latest research your physio is committed to providing the most suitable and effective treatment for your condition.
Our physiotherapy team are members of the Australian Physiotherapy Association, Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Australia and Sports Physiotherapy Australia. Updating their knowledge, skills and awareness of the latest advances in treatment assists them to offer the most current treatment techniques.
Physiotherapy is heavily reliant on evidence-based research. Our physiotherapists use their knowledge and skills to improve a range of conditions associated with different systems of the body, such as:

He has had the pleasure of working with a diverse patient population across the lifespan, from children with intellectual disabilities to seniors and patients from varied cultural backgrounds.

Connor is an experienced Physiotherapist with a real passion for helping his patients achieve their goals. Having health professionals as parents, Connor always wanted a career built on the premise of helping people. With a sporting back ground in rugby, basketball and swimming he sought the help of physiotherapy for injury rehabilitation, where his learning began. His approach with patients is to minimise the impact pain has on their day-to-day lives or returning them to an optimal level of function, Connor loves being involved in the process every step of the way.
Physiotherapy patients participate in a complete system of assessment and treatment, which aims at treating all of the different aspects of the condition. Physiotherapists utilise broad varying techniques, which depend on the individual’s requirements. The overall goal is to resolve symptoms, retrain altered movement patterns, and prevent recurrence. Your treatment program will take into account the nature of your condition and your own personal commitments to provide you with the best possible outcome.
Your first visit for any new problem will be a comprehensive consultation. We cater for extra time, if needed, to fully assess your condition and ensure you receive the most effective treatment possible. If you haven’t seen a Physiotherapist at our Practice before, it would be appreciated that you arrive ten minutes prior to your appointment to fill in a new patient form.
Each comprehensive consultation consists of a detailed discussion regarding your symptoms, assessment of different movements (which may require some degree of undressing), and some specific tests. Once a diagnosis has been reached, treatment options will be discussed and carried out – keep in mind that you are a key player in the management of your condition.
Standard follow-up appointments with your physiotherapist include discussion on progress since the previous appointment and reassessment of problematic movements or positions before treatment continues
At Tyack Health the physiotherapists are here to assist in complete recovery from your musculoskeletal condition. We believe that your care continues after you have left your appointment – you are a valued patient and will continue to be nurtured back to full health. This is why follow up appointments are sometimes recommended – so that the job isn’t left half-done!
As a patient of Tyack Health Centre’s Physiotherapy Department, you are invited to phone and speak directly with your practitioner concerning any exacerbation of pain, difficulty with exercises and any other treatment-related questions you may have. If the physiotherapist is unable to attend your call, all efforts will be made to contact you as soon as possible.
