We’ve Got You Covered From Head to Toe

If you’re experiencing pain or injury, it can be a frustrating and isolating experience. Our Physiotherapists understand this and strive to offer hands-on treatment from head to toe to help you achieve your health goals. Whether you have an acute injury or are living with a chronic condition, our Physio team is ready to help.

Physiotherapy Treatment Techniques

Passive Mobilisation

This type of treatment occurs when the patient is relaxed and your Physio produces movement. Passive mobilisation is aimed to sooth and mobilise painful and stiff joints using specific techniques that revolve around oscillations of physical force to treat the affected area.


Remedial Massage may be part of your treatment if you are specifically seeking this OR if your Physio deems it helpful for your condition to receive a dedicated session of massage. Massage can be a valuable addition to your treatment as a stand-alone technique and/or as an adjunct to your Physiotherapy program at MPPFG. It can reduce swelling, spasm, pain and assist recovery through promotion of blood flow.

Soft Tissue Techniques

There are many Soft Tissue Techniques implemented by our Physiotherapists that may be included in your treatment. This includes soft tissue release, trigger point therapy and myofascial release techniques.

Clinical Exercise Programs

An exercise program may be included in your personalised Physiotherapy treatment plan. This includes Remedial Exercise programs from simple active range of motion exercises to advanced strength and conditioning exercises using high-end equipment.

Dry Needling

Dry needling involves the use of traditional Eastern "hardware" - acupuncture needles - within the Western musculoskeletal model, applied by Western trained medical and allied health professionals. This modality has been a valued addition to the modern Physiotherapist's "Clinical Tool-Bag". It is used to relieve trigger points, tight myofascial bands and promote healing in affected tissues.


Electrotherapy is a valuable adjunct to other elements of our “Clinical Tool-Bag” and forms part of MPPFG’s Multi-Modal approach. There are several forms of Electrotherapy that we may utilise, including ultrasound, Interferential Electrical Stimulation, Electrical Muscle Stimulation, EMG Biofeedback, and Shockwave Therapy (ESWT).

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a method of treatment commonly utilised for recalcitrant and painful tendon problems known as Tendinopathy. It uses high-energy acoustic waves to stimulate a strong physiological response that may help overcome stubborn and painful tendon problems such as Plantar Fasciitis or Achilles Tendinopathy.


The buoyancy and resistance naturally offered by water can offer incredible benefits for many individuals going through Physiotherapy. Aquatic physical therapy can help rebuild strength and mobility, as well as offering a low-impact option to rebuild fitness levels.

Pre and Post-Operative

Going through an operation can take its toll on the body. A Physio can help you best prepare yourself for the stress while also helping to boost recovery and rehabilitation after the fact.

Physiotherapy for Sports Injuries

Sports injuries can cause major health setbacks if not handled quickly and appropriately. Athletes of all skill levels can benefit from working with a Physiotherapist. Physios will strive not only to treat injuries but also to minimise the risk of reinjury after your return to sport.

Your Physio Questions Answered

When visiting a GP, the primary focus will likely be to exclude serious pathology, advice and if medication needs to be prescribed. Physiotherapy aims to provide immediate pain relief and then progress onto other aspects of your recovery and rehabilitation.
