Holistic Physio Adelaide

At Physio Now we treat the cause, not the symptoms. Through assessing your body holistically we aim to target inflammation right from its source, reducing pain and improving movement for longevity.

Why Fascia Matters.

Fascia surrounds every structure in the body and is interconnected. It's also one of the most common sources of nerve and muscle pain. Injury, posture and lifestyle (just to name a few) can result in inflammatory chemicals being trapped within the deep fascial layers of the body - contributing to loss of movement, pain and further injury.

How Do We Treat Fascia?

We assess your nerves, muscles, ligaments and joints to identify what area is most restricted. Once identified, we use hands on techniques to drain the inflammation from its source. What you’ll feel is a gentle yet powerful release allowing the surrounding tissue to relax. As many of the conditions we see are chronic, we target multiple areas and systems of the body for best results.

What To Expect At Your First Session.

We combine hands on therapy with corrective exercise for long lasting results. Our movement training works to connect the deeper tissues of your body preventing the risk of further injury.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does your treatment approach differ to other therapies / clinics?

We understand that every structure in the body is connected through fascia. Fascial therapy is a passive manipulation of the body’s deep fascia which aims to drain excess fluid and inflammation trapped within. By draining the fascia using this multi system approach – we are able to reduce pain, restore restriction and turn down protective reflexes that contribute to chronic pain states.

We also integrate corrective exercise into every treatment session. This helps to load the treated areas and create connections within your body.

What conditions do you treat?

Some of the most common conditions we treat include for pain, but are not limited to:

  • Adhesive causalities (frozen shoulder)
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Coccydynia
  • Degenerative disc pain
  • Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (associated pain)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches (migraine, tension, cluster)
  • Hip, knee, foot and ankle pain
  • Low back pain and sciatica
  • Muscle tears, aches and pains
  • Neck pain
  • Nerve pain / neuropathies
  • Osteoarthritis (all areas)
  • Parkinson’s disease (associated pain)
  • Pelvic floor pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Post-concussion syndrome
  • Shoulder, elbow, forearm and wrist / hand problems
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Sporting injuries
  • Sprains and ligament tears
  • Tendinitis / tendinopathies
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Thoracic, rib and chest pain
  • TMJ / jaw pain and associated disorders
  • Trochanteric bursitis
  • Vertigo
Will I get treated during my initial assessment?

You sure will. We start your initial assessment with examining your movement and scanning your body for fascial restriction. We find a lot of value in continually re-assessing throughout your treatment, getting you off the table to walk around, assessing tissue changes, and seeking out the root cause of your dysfunction through ongoing assessment.

How long are your sessions?

While many clinics have you in and out in 15-20 min, our initial and follow up sessions are 60 minutes. Our session structure is designed around having you feeling better, faster.  We treat the cause, not symptoms and when presented with the complexities of the human body the extra time allocated is important.

How do I choose which therapist is best for me?

Our therapists each bring unique attributes to the team. We pride ourselves on continued collaboration with each other. In short, get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to advise you who is best suited to treat your pain / restriction.

Can your team help me if I'm not in pain?

Most definitely. We suggest don’t wait for an injury to build up. Our modern habits of being glued to the computer chair, lack of sleep and poor dieting does not allow our body to work or maintain balance the way it’s supposed to. If you allocate the time to address muscle aches and pains before they build up to something more chronic, you’re going to feel better and be able to do the things you love for longer.

Are you a preferred provider with my private health insurer?

No, and here’s why. Preferred providers typically offer much shorter session times at 15 – 20 min, leaving little time for a detailed assessment and treatment. This is because health insurers cap what a clinic can charge per session for it to remain gap free. We would much rather spend the extra time with you to truly understand your condition and have you feeling better, faster.

What experience do you have?

We stay up to date on latest medical research/treatment and our therapists regularly update their skills world-wide. Our therapists are highly skilled with extensive experience in sports, private practice and NDIS sectors. Our treatment approach restores balance by decreasing tension, reducing pain, aligning your posture, increasing your range of motion, and building your strength. We are passionate about continued education and provide our therapists with regular workshops to advance our skills and progress the industry collectively. One incredibly powerful technique we utilise is Counterstrain, a gentle non invasive hands on approach aimed at reducing pain and restoring movement.
