Physiotherapy Sports and Rehab Clinic


General Physiotherapy in Brisbane

Physiotherapy Sports and Rehab Clinic provides comprehensive physiotherapy services to the Ashgrove and Moorooka communities.  Our physios use 'hands on' manual therapy techniques such as mobilisation, massage, and exercise to stimulate improved healing responses within the body.  This provides pain relief and restoration of normal movement and strength.

Some of the physiotherapy techniques we use include:

  • Manual therapy
  • Manipulative therapy
  • Exercise
  • Dry Needling
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Dynamic taping
  • Electrotherapy


This form of treatment is beneficial for acute and chronic injuries and post surgery rehabilitation.  

Hydrotherapy aims to relieve pain, relax muscle spasm, restore full joint movement and increase muscle strength , power and endurance.  As well as improve functional capacity, co-ordination and balance. 

The warmth and buoyancy of the water induces relaxation, decreases pain and encourages early movement.  

Each treatment session is conducted one-on-one and lasts approx 30 minutes. The pool is heated to approx 30 degrees and sessions run all year long. 

Dry Needling

Dry Needling is becoming increasingly recognised as a valuable technique for treating muscle pain and dysfunction and involves the insertion of a fine, sterile, acupuncture needle into irritable, tender and/or tight points along a muscle (“commonly known as trigger points”). 

Dry needling is a technique which is extremely effective for releasing hypertonic (taut) muscles which contain trigger points.  Trigger points are tender to touch, produce pain both locally, and in a referred pattern, and often accompany chronic musculoskeletal disorders (eg. Tight, tender muscles of the upper shoulder causing neck pain.)  The needle is placed into the trigger point to simulate a specific reaction in the target tissue, causing reduced tension both locally and in the adjacent joints.  A sense of release and an increased range of motion are often experienced by the patient. 

Dry needling is used to treat a range conditions, including:

  • neck and back pain
  • head aches
  • tennis elbow
  • ITB friction syndrome (runners knee)
  • Shin splints
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Plantar fasciitis (heel pain). 

Dry needling is used in conjunction with specific physiotherapy techniques (ie. joint mobilisation), muscle stretching and corrective exercises that aim to relieve pain and restore normal body biomechanics for long lasting benefits to the patient.
