Pain and Injuries Conditions

NO MORE PAIN

Rotator Cuff Injury & Tear

The rotator cuff is the group of muscles, tendons and joint capsule that stabilise your shoulder. It is a relatively common injury and source of shoulder pain, instability and weakness.

Ankle Sprains

Ankles sprains occur when the foot suddenly twists inwards and the ligaments that stabilise the ankle are excessively stretched to the point of strain. They tend to be quite painful and often cause swelling, bruising and make it difficult to stand on the injured foot.

Elbow Pain

Whether we acknowledge it or not, we are constantly using and moving our elbows. This means that an elbow injury can be extremely frustrating - and painful. While tennis elbow is the most common elbow injury we treat, there are a number of other causes of elbow pain. The majority of elbow pain can be attributed to poor shoulder strength and positioning and should also be looked at as a possible cause as well.

Calf Injuries

Injury to the calves can be very painful and severely limiting to your regular daily activities - even just walking! These injuries often occur during sports that require you to suddenly change direction and have quick stops/starts, such as in basketball, soccer and tennis. Because calf injuries often cause you to change your walking style and begin overloading other muscles, effective treatment is essential.

Nerve Pain

Damage to the nerves, and hence the signals that are being transmitted from the nerves to the brain and back, can cause an array of unusual symptoms alongside pain. This is usually a result of damage or disease within the nervous system. Because nerve pain can be felt day and night and even while you’re resting, it can be extremely debilitating to a person’s quality of life.

Shoulder Bursitis

Bursitis describes the inflammation of a small, cushion-like and fluid-filled sac called a bursa. This bursa works to reduce friction between tendon and bone when you move your shoulder, promoting healthy and pain-free movement. Bursitis can cause pain and discomfort that is felt when moving your shoulder

Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is a problem faced by 4 in 5 Australians at some point in their lifetime. It’s uncomfortable, painful, and can make everyday tasks and general movement incredibly painful. In fact, it’s one of the most common reasons for missed work. This is why effective treatment that has a long-term focus is absolutely essential.

Upper Back Pain

If you have upper back pain, you may feel anything from a sharp stabbing pain to numbness and tingling that starts around the spine and can spread to the ribs and hands. The pain may come on suddenly following an injury, but often it tends to develop gradually and progressively worsen.

Tendinopathies (tendonitis, tendinosis)

A tendinopathy refers to damage incurred by a tendon and the subsequent painful symptoms that follow. Any tendon around the body can become damaged, whether it is due to a trauma/injury, overuse, or various other causes. When a specific tendon is damaged, the name of the tendon is incorporated into the diagnosed condition. For example, injury to the Achilles tendon is known as Achilles tendinopathy.

Knee Pain

Knee pain is often caused by overuse, meaning that the symptoms come on gradually over time. This means that even if your symptoms are new, the damage to the knee joint or the surrounding bones, muscles or ligaments are likely to have been developing over many weeks and months. This makes effective and timely treatment essential. Due to the population sitting for extended periods of time, we are seeing more patients with tight hamstrings causing their knees to work if slight flexion (bent) and resulting in knee injuries.

Sciatica

Sciatica causes pain that starts at the lower back and spreads down into the leg. The symptoms include pain ,weakness, numbness, burning and tingling. Effective treatments helps relieve pressure from the sciatic nerve and eliminate the symptoms.

Nerve Pain

Nerve Pain Nerve Pain Our nerves are fragile but wonderful sensory structures present all around our body. They work to send pain messages to the brain and hence are the reason we feel pain when we hurt ourselves (yes, also why nerve blockers are used to temporarily stop pain). When the nervous system...
