Chatswood, NSW – Beyond a typical physiotherapy clinic, Movement 101 Chatswood believes health is full circle as it requires individuals to improve all aspects of their well-being to get in the best shape. Drawing from their personal experiences, a team of therapists decided to create an environment where clients have health and wellness services centred around them to address their needs. They have a range of expertise in physiotherapy, massage therapy, exercise physiology, fitness screening, pilates, and pre/post-natal therapy. They use evidence-based processes and treatment methods to identify issues on a structural level and create tailored solutions to help clients get sustainable results.
In the sports injury clinic, a team of physiotherapists treats athletes, families, and anyone desiring real improvements in their mobility. Whether it’s a recent injury or a condition they battle every day, the team can get them back to enjoying an uninhibited life. They address muscle/nerve problems, traumatic injuries, chronic pain, limited mobility/strength, ongoing headaches, spinal/neck pain, work injuries, whiplash, and many more. They can also assess/treat incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, belly separation, and other pelvic floor dysfunctions to prevent weakness and improve muscle strength. Depending on patients’ needs, therapists often combine Chatswood physio with massage, pilates, and other exercise programs.
The clinic’s accredited exercise physiologist helps clients who have developed, are at risk of developing, or desire to prevent injuries/chronic medical health conditions. They create solutions for metabolism, musculoskeletal injuries, cardiovascular illnesses, mental health, sports performance, and women’s health issues. While they don’t provide manual therapy like physiotherapists, they assist clients with stretching to relieve tight muscles, recommend exercises that build up strength/mobility, and offer weight loss classes/groups.
Movement 101 Chatswood empowers clients to overcome/manage challenges associated with old age, diseases, and difficulties like specialised equipment prescription, home rehab, dementia care/planning, palliative care, cognitive assessment/retraining, home modifications, and many more. The clinic’s paediatric occupational therapists help children having trouble performing daily activities because of developmental delays, intellectual disabilities, and emotional, physical, or psychological problems. They look into a child’s gross/fine motor skills, thoughts/emotions, sensory processing, and behaviour/social interactions. Once they discover the problem area, they find solutions that enhance their speech, handwriting/drawing, alertness/attention, self-care skills, visual memory, and self-confidence.
Clients with plantar fasciitis, forefoot injuries, shin splints, recurring ankle pain, or nail/skin injuries can reap the benefits of science and experience at Movement 101 Chatswood. The team combines podiatry techniques with physiotherapy and physiology to relieve pain, improve movement, and speed up recovery. They use advanced technology to examine clients’ feet, leg structure, alignment, and function while standing or walking to understand their pain/discomfort. With a 3D foot scan, they can prescribe custom orthotics to distribute load through the bottom part of the feet or perform shockwave therapy to promote chronic tendon pain.
