What We Do
Performance Sports & Rehab Specialists is a group of Allied Health Professionals and Sports and Performance Enthusiasts who believe in optimising human potential through the manipulation of mechanics and sports science.
Evaluates and treats any orthopaedic or musculoskeletal condition. We use manual therapy such as functional, joint, soft tissue and neural mobilisations and manipulations to treat conditions that require mechanical fine tuning. After manual therapy, neuromuscular re-education techniques and exercises which promote improved motor control will be utilised to ensure better carry over so that the benefits of the treatment will not be temporary. We will equip you with tools and exercises to self- treat, maintain and improve awareness of your own condition. It does not promote dependence but empowers potential. This is how we want our patients to see our trade as it can be a fulfilling journey when we as patient and caregiver do it right.
PELVIC HEALTH PHYSIOTHERAPY (Women & Children)
It is a specialised area of physiotherapy that focuses on the training of pelvic floor muscles and more. Your pelvic floor muscles are so important because we use them daily to pee and poop, and don’t forget, it is also involved in sexual function!
Pilates can enable patients to gain core strength to prevent injuries to the extremities. Modifications are made to benefit patients with all kinds of pain and injuries.
Pilates is taught by Dr Belinda Ting who has been a Power Pilates Certified Pilates Instructor since September 2007. Belinda utilises the classical method that originated from Joseph Pilates. Belinda was trained by New York trained professional dancer, Allison Gonzales who completed her apprenticeship under the guidance of Romana Kryzanowska, a devotee and pupil of Joseph Pilates.
Pilates classes are currently held in the clinic on Thursday mornings.
Sports massage is a deep tissue massage which is personalized to the athlete, taking into account their sport of choice. Focusing on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements. Sports massage therapy can be used as a means to enhance pre-event preparation and reduce recovery time for maximum performance during training or after an event. Athletes have discovered that specially designed sports massage promotes flexibility, reduces fatigue, improves endurance, helps prevent injuries and prepares their body and mind for optimal performance.
A bike fit is the evaluation of the rider’s physical condition and needs, then adjusting the rider’s position accordingly. With the evolution of sports science, cyclists are looking for marginal gains in order to win races, be most aerodynamic and to become a more efficient athlete, but some just want to ride more comfortably or pain free. Sometimes, it’s about fitting for comfort vs aerodynamics. The goal is to reduce injuries, improve efficiency or simply allow a patient with a condition to ride again.
Sports training helps you to achieve your performance goals regardless of your current level. It incorporates strength, power, flexibility and agility training which are the foundations of performance and injury prevention for all sports.
Shockwave therapy is a novel treatment that is great for promoting healing and speeding up recovery alongside physiotherapy. It is particularly useful for muscle or tendon problems that have lasted more that 3 months.
