Hands-On Physiotherapy

Michelle utilises proven assessment and treatment techniques which are designed to integrate the neurological, musculoskeletal and sensorimotor systems and optimise overall function. The interventions that she administers are chosen specifically to align with the individual client’s goals, and with consideration for the important role that their intentions and motivations play in attaining and maintaining results.

Key services include:

  • Myofascial trigger point therapy

  • Joint manipulation, mobilisation and/or massage

  • Tight muscle release

  • Balance and co-ordination training

  • Postural control training

  • Core stability and back strengthening

  • Post-operative rehabilitation

  • Home exercise programs

As Michelle is not registered with the NDIS, her services are only available to NDIS Participants who have elected to self-manage or have their plan manged by a nominated plan manager, and to private clients.

All of Michelle's services are offered at home, at school, or at a location that is suited to you.

Telehealth

 

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic Michelle's holistic approach has expanded to include Telehealth consultations. Telehealth consultations have proven to be very effective in the management of various physical conditions and have ensured that progress has not had to slow down for anyone during this pandemic, including those who have had to self-isolate, those who have been placed in quarantine, and those for whom in-person consultations have not been safe or possible.

Telehealth consultations begin with a thorough physical assessment wherein Michelle observes movement whilst guiding clients through a number of activities and tests. Following the physical assessment, Michelle provides guidance on how to perform self-treatments and provides a tailored exercise program which may be completed at home.

For the physical assessment all that is needed is a clear space on the floor and a rug or yoga mat. For young children it may also be useful to have games and toys on hand, as well as snacks and water. If further equipment is required, Michelle will discuss this with you prior to the consultation and make sure that the equipment is both suitable and available.

 

Telehealth services include:

  • Observation of functional exercises and movement

  • Observation of posture

  • Observation of movement through play​

  • Live demonstrations of assisted exercises that may be performed by parents/carers to achieve the desired results

  • Live demonstrations of self-treatments (including stretches, exercises and massage) designed to achieve tight fascia release and joint mobilisation

  • Home exercise programs

Michelle uses Physitrack Telehealth software to provide Telehealth consultations. Physitrack is encrypted software that is specifically designed for physiotherapy and is endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association.

For Telehealth consultations you will need a stable internet connection and a device with a camera and microphone, such as phone, tablet or laptop.

We have developed a comprehensive and concise Physitrack user guide for clients which provides step by step instructions of how you can access and login to your Telehealth consultation at the scheduled time of your appointment.

We pay our respect to the Ngunnawal and Ngambri Peoples upon whose lands we work and live.

We acknowledge their continuing cultures which are among the oldest continuing cultures in human history.
