Sutherland Physiotherapy and Pilates

We are a multidisciplinary clinic offering an extensive range of specialist skills and services to cater specifically for your needs. Sutherland Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic employs highly skilled and professional physiotherapists

Sutherland Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic was established in 1989 to provide quality physiotherapy services to the Sutherland Shire. The clinic not only caters for the needs of the sporting population but also people of all ages. Our primary focus is to provide the highest quality care to our patients giving thorough assessment, accurate diagnosis and effective treatment. We are committed to your care. We pride ourselves on the level of experience of our physiotherapists and believe that in working as a team we will be able to provide you with the best possible service. Our therapists are regularly taking part in ongoing professional development and training courses to remain up to date with the latest information and evidence based treatments. This has allowed us to maintain a reputation for excellence within manual therapy, sports and musculoskeletal fields. Our multidisciplinary clinic has an open plan gym setting and adjoining Pilates and Exercise Studio. We ensure that the latest, most up to date equipment is available to give you the complete treatment that you’re looking for. Keeping up to date with cutting edge treatments is important to us. We now have available a Real Time Ultrasound unit (RTUS). RTUS has been shown to be the most accurate tool for assessing the muscles of the pelvic floor, deep lower back and abdominal stabilising muscles. Whilst getting visual feedback, clients are best able to understand the concept of recruiting these muscles. We also offer specialised Women's Health Physiotherapy assessments and treatments. In addition to physiotherapy, we offer a wide range of complimentary health and medical services. In particular, a sports physician, specialist doctor in the field of sports medicine is available within the clinic. There is also a podiatrist and we have a range of psychology services available, giving you the option of choosing which profession best suits your needs. We have also just completed our refurbishment creating a new gymnasium incorporating new equipment such as a treadmill, free weights, and weights machine. Programs are given to improve muscle strength, endurance and function.

Let’s hear it for the boys!!

We love seeing men participate in our Pilates classes!
Pilates inspired classes are excellent for any age and any gender. Focus on developing core strength, mindfulness, flexibility and target those smaller muscle groups that don’t often get a lot of attention with heavier weight lifting.

Come on in and see us to get started! 👊🏻

Diastisis rectus abdominus muscle (DRAM) or abdominal separation usually occurs during pregnancy. It is where the connective tissue in the centre of the abdominal wall, called the linea alba, weakens and thins causing the abdominal muscles to sit further apart.

It is a NORMAL part of pregnancy occurring in up to 100% of pregnant women in the 3rd trimester, although it is often only first noticed in the postnatal period.
Things you may notice include: • Sensation of weakness in the abdominal wall
• A soft ‘gap’ down the centre of the abdominal wall especially when contracting the abdominal muscles
• A bulging or doming appearance down the centre of the abdominal wall

Early intervention is important to first diagnose, and then focus on restoring the strength of the abdominal wall.
Physiotherapists can asses the degree of DRAM, the function of the abdominal wall, as well as use real-time ultrasound to determine correct activation patterns of deep abdominals.
Education regarding symptom management and appropriate exercise choices also form an important part of the treatment of DRAM.
At Sutherland Physiotherapy we are passionate about encouraging women to return to/continue to exercise and want to encourage appropriate exercise choices to ensure long term progress for you! If you have concerns regarding your abdominal wall, give us a call today!

Congratulations to the Rabbitohs after their 28-20 win over the Titans last night!

Our practice principal Kenny is pictured here helping player Braidon Burns from the field following a hamstring injury sustained during the game.

Hamstring strains are some of the most commonly seen injuries in sports that require a high degree of speed, power and agility.

Luckily we know he’s in great hands to assist in a speedy recovery!

MYTH BUSTED: Exercise isn't harmful for people with knee osteoarthritis

‘Inactivity and rest makes pain and osteoarthritis worse, not better in the longer term. Our joints need movement and exercise to stimulate repair and keep them strong. There is undisputable evidence that staying active and regular participation in exercise is safe and will help improve pain, and a person’s quality of life.’

Important information regarding osteoarthritis and activity levels. If you are unsure as to how to get started, see your Physiotherapist for management advice!

#physiotherapy #sutherlandshire #osteoarthritis #exercise #strength #activerecovery #OA #arthritis Advice to rest and avoid pain is commonly provided to people with knee and other joint pains - advice that is often wrong, and harmful.

Did you know?

A healthy bladder:
• empties 4-8x/day
• has the capacity to hold 400-600ml of urine
• does not leak
• alerts you when it is full, but gives you enough time to find a toilet without racing/leaking
• May wake you 1x/night, or 2x if you are older

If your bladder or pelvic floor control is causing you concern book in with our Women’s Health Physiotherapist - we can help you be the boss of your bladder once more!

A useful article outlining some of the lasting effects ‘W’ sitting can have for our children.

Our wonderful client, Bev, working on her pelvic stability with some ‘Big Frogs’. Can you believe she had a pelvic fracture only a couple of months ago?!?
Bev, a competitive horse rider, has been a loyal client of the Pilates studio at Sutherland for many years and has used Pilates to recover from some pretty major injuries! She loves Pilates so much than she’s embarking on a total career change, and has become a Pilates instructor herself! We wish you all the best Bev!

Some good info to help keep our kids safe and encourage good development!

The APA has endorsed a campaign by the Adelaide Women’s and Children’s Hospital paediatric physiotherapy team and Kidsafe SA alerting parents to the dangers of baby walkers and exercise jumpers due to the risk of injury and milestone developmental delays. APA National President Phil Calvert today appeared at a media call with SA Health’s Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Nicola Spurrier, KidSafe CEO Holly Fitzgerald and Kirstie Morgan, APAM. Phil said that parents often think these products support their children's development, but in fact they can have the opposite effect, often causing milestone delays or muscle tightness. Parents and carers are urged to utilise new resources that provide alternatives such as standing activity tables, push trolleys and baby swings or rockers for younger babies. Take a look at the full recommendations on the KidSafe website:

Congratulations to our Practice Principal Kenny Michalopoulos who has been appointed physiotherapist for the New Zealand Kiwis and their upcoming test tour against Australia and England.
We wish him well and best of luck.

Exercise + pregnancy 🙌

Considering its women's health week we'd like to share the benefits on exercise during pregnancy 🤰🏼

The Australian College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology recommend at least 30min of moderate intensity exercise on most days of the week. Among the recommended are swimming and brisk walking for aerobic exercise and weights based classes or Pilates for resistance exercise.

The health benefits include:
- Reduced pelvic and back pain
- Increased energy levels
- Faster recovery after labour
- Prevention and management of urinary continence

If you would like to find out more about pilates during pregnancy, contact us for more information or to book a Pilates assessment.

Wishing all the Dads out there a Happy Father's Day! We hope you had a day filled with fun and love 👌

Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there especially our Dads on staff - James, Craig, Tim, Gavan, Trent, Wendel, Dave, Jeff, John, Bernard, Scott, Angus, Brian
