Neck Pain & Headache Physios
Headaches are one of the most common ailments, with almost everyone having experienced a headache at one time or another. It’s when headaches start to become persistent and bothersome that they are problem.
The main types of headaches are migraine, tension type headache, cluster headache and cervicogenic headache. One of the contributing factors for headaches is stiffness in the neck and muscle tension in the neck and shoulders. Poor posture, stress, fatigue and repetitive neck movements (eg looking down at computer screen) can all contribute to headaches.
If you’ve been putting up with headaches, book in an appointment with Relika to get on top of them and back to doing what you love.
Jaw Pain Physios
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, also referred to as jaw pain refers to a cluster of conditions characterised by pain or restriction of the jaw and surrounding areas.
Symptoms that may signal a TMJ disorder include pain in the muscles of the face, temples and around the jaw, stiffness and reduced range of movement, painful clicking, locking, popping, or grating in the jaw joint when opening or closing the mouth and clenching or grinding of teeth.
Physiotherapy is highly effective in relieving and managing TMJ related problems, even when the symptoms are long-standing and severe.
Book in an appointment with Relika to have your jaw pain assessed and treated.
Dizziness & Vertigo Physios
Dizziness is an umbrella term, which can describe symptoms like vertigo, giddiness, faintness, light-headedness, disequilibrium or imbalance.
The signs of dizziness and vertigo can be similar and both can be caused by inner ear conditions. A tell-tale sign of vertigo is an intense sensation of the room spinning, often when either rolling in bed or sitting up from laying down. Other inner ear conditions like neuritis or labyrinthitis can result in light-headedness or wooziness. All inner ear disorders can also cause a decline in balance. Other causes for dizziness can be linked to migraines, trauma, changes in the neck or brain.
Vestibular Physiotherapists undergo comprehensive training to be able to treat or assist with a variety of dizziness conditions.
Pre & Post-Surgery Physios
Having surgery can be daunting, but what you do after surgery is even more important. Your physiotherapist will work in conjunction with you and your surgeon, following a specific rehab protocol to ensure the best possible outcome.
Research also shows that the stronger you are heading into surgery, the better the outcomes are afterwards. Chat with us today about how we can implement a pre-surgery strength plan.
