The room can be used for:

We can even provide an online program for your own Pilates or stretching or strengthening and conditioning.

  • Low back injuries including disc and joint injuries
  • Neck and middle back injuries especially where poor posture is contributing to the pain

iPad Video Analysis

We offer an ipad video analysis program which allows us to view, review, enhance and slow down joint movement, muscle contraction, postural positions and functional activities to discover reasons for pain and injury.

Why do we do this?

Many problems in the body relate to poor biomechanics – the way the body is positioned and the way it moves.

What does this program mean for you ?

iPad video analysis allows us to identify the problems related to biomechanics and then modify or correct the activity so that you can return to pain free function.

The iPad video movement analysis is fantastic for the assessment and treatment of:

  • Work place and home office ergonomics
  • Running Injuries
  • Rowing Injuries
  • Bicycling Injuries
  • Throwing/Bowling Injuries in Cricket
  • Kicking injuries in Soccer or Football

It can also be used for:

• Enhancing your performance even if you are not injured

• Providing a clearer more dynamic look at your workplace. Not just examining the way you sit in relation to your computer, but the way you move at your desk which provides us with so many more clues to poor posture, repetitive strain injuries / occupational overuse injuries.

Dynamic Real Time Ultrasound

Move that muscle, see it work, feel it work, get it better

Elizabeth Street Physiotherapy uses Dynamic Real Time Ultrasound to examine the way muscles work from inside your body.

It is a non-invasive technique that allows us to assess and rehabilitate muscles that are weak or poorly moving.

From a video screen you will be able to see the targeted muscle contract. This will assist you in seeing and therefore feeling the muscle contract or even how much effort is required to move that muscle.

Dynamic Real Time Ultrasound is best known for its ability in improving deep abdominal muscle core stability in patients with low back pain.

The Physiotherapists at Elizabeth Street Physiotherapy can then assist you in improving and modifying muscle contraction and improve muscle strength and co-ordination.
