Our Highton, Geelong physiotherapy team has an approach to care which is extremely patient-centered, educational and encouraging. As physiotherapists, we believe our role goes beyond alleviating patients’ pain and improving functioning only when you come by the clinic. We think better health and wellbeing is achieved when a physiotherapist teaches patients to connect with their own bodies and understand how they best function.
At South Valley Clinic, we think this is what sets our Highton physiotherapists apart from other clinics. When you see our physiotherapists David or Vanessa, you will receive a through physical assessment of your injury, looking at how your movement and posture contributes to your condition. Further to this, we strive to give you the tools to live pain free and moving better, simply by learning about your own bodies, and the movements and exercises that support optimal health.
A physiotherapist at our Geelong clinic can help:
- alleviate injuries or pain to any part of the musculoskeletal system
- improve balance and prevent falls
- improve functioning for daily activities
- improve posture
- improve strength and flexibility
We treat conditions affecting the entire body, from the feet to the head. Whether it’s a sporting injury, wear and tear affecting your body or joint, or pain related to poor posture, our Highton, Geelong physiotherapy team can help. Our specialty areas are spinal pain in the back or neck, pelvic dysfunction, including pregnancy-related conditions, and headaches.
