From Desk to Dumbbell: The Power of Physiotherapy in Boosting Wellness at PhysioLogix West Perth

Physiotherapy is more than just a treatment for injuries; it's a pathway to optimal health and performance. Whether you're an athlete striving for peak performance or an office worker battling the daily strains of a desk job, physiotherapy can be your key to a healthier, pain-free life. At PhysioLogix in West Perth, we specialise in providing tailored solutions for both athletes and office workers. Here's how:

Exercise Physiotherapy
Gym and Crossfit Physiotherapy

For Athletes: Optimal Recovery and Injury Prevention 1. Specific Rehabilitation Programs: Our rehabilitation programs are designed with athletes in mind. We understand the importance of getting back to what you love, and our gym-based recovery plans ensure long-term success. One of our success stories involves a powerlifter who had been experiencing long-term shoulder pain. Through careful biomechanical analysis of his bench press and overhead press techniques, we were able to reduce the load being placed on the shoulder complex and identified the root cause of the issue. At the same time we implemented a home exercise program that improved the recruitment timing and functional strength capacity of the rotator cuff and scapula stabilisers. Through optimising the load being placed through shoulder and identifying and then improving the root cause of the issue he's now competing in powerlifting meets pain free! This was all achieved while he continued training throughout the course of his recovery. 2. Massage and Dry Needling: These techniques can aid in optimal recovery time, healing, and prevention of injuries. By targeting specific muscles and trigger points, we can enhance blood flow, reduce muscle tension, and accelerate healing.

Ergonomic Assessment
Good Ergonomics Helps a Happy Worker

For Office Workers: Long-Term Solutions for Common Ailments 1. Ergonomic Assessments: Lower back pain, neck pain, migraines, and headaches are common among office workers. Our ergonomic assessments analyse your workspace and provide recommendations to minimise strain and discomfort based off either pictures of your workspace or off the information you provide

2. Home Exercise Programs: We empower our clients to take control of their symptoms through personalized home exercise programs. These routines can alleviate chronic issues and promote overall wellness, as well as address more immediate causes of pain like tension headaches, as well as neck and lower back pain.

3. Massage and Dry Needling: Similar to athletes, office workers can benefit from massage and dry needling to address specific pain points and enhance overall well-being.

The Science Behind Physiotherapy There is a plethora of studies that assess the impact of physiotherapy on recovery. For example a more recent study titled "Effectiveness of physical therapy and exercise on pain and functional status in patients with chronic low back pain: a randomized-controlled trial" found significant improvements in patients who underwent physical therapy. Both the physical therapy group and the control group saw improvements in pain levels and functional status. However, the physical therapy group had statistically significant better outcomes in pain scores and functional status at three months and one year after treatment compared to the control group.

Physiotherapy is not a one-size-fits-all solution. At PhysioLogix, we believe in personalised care that addresses the unique needs of athletes and office workers. From ergonomic assessments to specific rehabilitation programs, our services are designed to ensure long-term success and well-being.
