Physiotherapy Treatment

At Elite Range Physiotherapy in Perth, we know complex medical terms, but we would rather communicate with you in a way you can understand. Our experienced clinicians are experts in the assessment and physiotherapy treatment of back & neck pain, sports injuries and general muscle and joint discomfort.

Have you ever noticed how you walk into a medical clinic, they immediately start throwing scary-sounding words full of Greek prefixes and Latin derivatives at you? Yes, we are healthcare practitioners now. But at one point in our lives, we were just as intimidated by medical jargon as you are.

Our central location on William St (20 meters from Perth Underground Train Station) enables us to offer these expert services to not only Perth City, but the surrounding CBD areas.

To make it easy, here is a list of the most common conditions we treat and a simplified explanation of each. If you want to know more, we’re always glad to help, so call us on 08 9486 8653 and we will be happy to answer your questions.

At Elite Range Physiotherapy, we actively treat:

  • Lumbo-Sacral (Low Back) Pain – This is the most common musculoskeletal complaint affecting Australians and refers to pain emanating from the muscles, joints, ligaments, discs or nerves in the low back and pelvis.
  • Neck Pain – When not properly aligned, the neck can generate pain. This may also manifest into muscle spasm, stiffness, nerve pain, dizziness, headaches and loss of range of motion.
  • Shoulder Pain – The most common cause of shoulder pain is injury to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the shoulder region. Other causes include degenerative conditions (arthritis) and the ‘pinching’ of nerves.
  • Headaches – As many as 90% of adults have had or will have tension headaches. Tension headaches are more common among women than men and are most likely caused by the contraction of the muscles that cover the skull.
  • Tennis Elbow -Tennis players are not the only ones that suffer from tennis elbow. The repetitive nature of typing, using a screwdriver or a hammer may cause tennis elbow. The cause of the pain (and weakness) is repeated stress that creates tiny tears in the muscles attached on the outside of the elbow.
  • Ankle Sprains -Also known as ‘the rolled ankle’, ankle sprain refers to pain coming from damaged ligaments and tendons on the inside or, more commonly, the outside of the ankle.
  • Carpel Tunnel Syndrome – This is a condition in which the median nerve is compressed as it travels through the wrist at the carpel tunnel. This may cause pain, numbness and tingling that can extend right up the arm leading to discomfort to the shoulder and forearm.
  • Arthritis – Arthritis involves the inflammation of a joint (an area where two bones meet). Arthritis is frequently accompanied by joint pain. There are many forms and causes of arthritis. These include family history, injury, metabolic and immune conditions and infections.
  • Hip Pain – Trauma is often the cause of hip pain, but any source of inflammation may cause pain in the hip area. Pain is one of the symptoms of inflammation along with swelling, warmth, and redness; together these are signals that a problem may exist.
  • Knee Pain – With today’s increasingly active society, the number of knee problems is increasing. The knee is made up of a number of structures including bones, ligaments, tendons, cartilage and bursae (fluid filled sacks). Knee pain has a wide variety of specific causes and treatments.
  • Prolapsed (Slipped) Disc – This condition presents as a disc bulge that can then press on the spinal cord or nerves as they pass out from the spine. This pressure can cause pain, numbness, tingling and weakness. This condition can develop gradually (following recurrent episodes of back strain) or suddenly (through strenuous actions such as lifting or twisting).
  • Trigger Points – Trigger points are discrete, focused and irritable spots located in a taut band of muscle. They produce pain locally, or, in a referred pattern, and often accompany chronic musculoskeletal disorders.
  • Whiplash – Whiplash can be caused by a car accident, a sports injury, a fall or even by being punched or shaken. The key symptom of whiplash is neck or upper back pain. The pain can start immediately, or, it can develop days, weeks, and sometimes even months after the incident.
  • Sciatica – Contrary to popular belief, this is not the name of any movie starring Al Pacino. It is actually the technical term for pain affecting the back, hip, and outer side of the leg. This is caused by compression of a spinal nerve root in the lower back.
  • Muscle Tendinopathies – Injuries to the tendons (the tissue that connects muscles to bones)
  • Scoliosis – An abnormal curvature of the spine that, in serious cases, can significantly hinder movement and motor skills.
  • Sinus Tarsi Syndrome – Known as the “eye of the foot,” the Sinus Tarsi can become extremely sore in flat-footed individuals leading to stiffness and swelling over the outside of the ankle.
  • Glenoid Labrum injuries – This is the technical name for the ring of cartilage that runs around the cavity of the scapula (wingbone) that can become irritated and inflamed by aggressive, or repetitive sharp motions.
  • Acromioclavicular (A/C) joint Injuries – Don’t let the creepy name fool you. This joint has absolutely nothing to do with spiders. This is the clinical term for the joint where the shoulder and clavicle (collarbone) meet. Often with injuries to this joint, one or more of the ligaments surrounding the joint will tear as well, which can lead to instability and separations.
  • Plantar Faciitis – This term denotes an inflammation of the meaty tissue on the bottom of the foot from a strain, or other kind of irritation. It can be quite painful if not treated.
  • Osteitis Pubis – This term describes an inflammation of the Pubic Symphysis (pubic bone and/or groin) and surrounding tissues.
