We use various techniques such as pain education, hands on treatment, manual therapy, massage, Dry needling, Western Acupuncture and exercise therapy to help put you back on track to a health and pain free life.
Fitness & Sports Performance
Getting you back to pain-free function isn’t the end of our job. We like to see our clients come out the other end of rehabilitation with greater capacity than what they had before their injury. We can tailor to your fitness goals such as weight loss, improving cardiovascular health or endurance. If you are an athlete, we can help to improve the physical attributes related to that sport. Not to mention we are located opposite Bigge Park which we often use for athletic rehab and development.

Falls Prevention Program
The role of physiotherapy is to determine the correct treatment strategy that is specific to the clients impairments and activity limitations which are observed throughout the initial assessment. Treatment is also based on evidence of falls factors which physiotherapy intervention can improve and/ or alter. These include complex mobility e.g. as post-stroke, Parkinson’s with freezing; co-ordination and balance; flexibility; strength and endurance; fear of falling; confidence; getting up from the floor using backward-chaining, preventing a long lie. At Aspire physiotherapy our rehabilitation programs also help in the prevention of further falls by working on mobility, balance, strength, helping to restore confidence and self-esteem to improve our clients quality of life.
