PEREGIAN SPRINGS SPORTS INJURY & PHYSIOTHERAPY CENTRE
A FEW WORDS ABOUT US
Let us introduce ourselves
We aim to provide you with an accurate diagnosis, appropriate treatment, a specific exercise program and a thorough explanation of your injury/condition and rehabilitation that is required.
Our treatment sessions are longer in duration (not restricted to 30 minutes), and are usually 40-60 minutes, which includes massage from a qualified massage therapist.
Our treatment emphasis is very much a hands-on approach utilising a wide range of manual therapy techniques. This may include joint mobilisations, soft tissue releases, Mulligan techniques, muscle energy, dry needling, massage, stretches or taping. We believe that an integral part of your recovery and prevention of further injury is an appropriate exercise program. This rehabilitation program will be specific to your injury/condition and will include stretches and strengthening exercises for home and/or gym.

Knee Pain, Injury and Rehabilitation
Knee pain is a very common musculoskeletal condition which may result from an acute (eg. twisting) or chronic injury (eg. running), with no injury (eg. kneecap pain) or just as you get older (arthritic knee).
We will provide a very experienced management of your knee condition with a thorough knee assessment and rehabilitation. The critical importance of recovery from knee pain, injury or surgery is a correct/appropriate knee rehabilitation program to restore normal knee function.
The most common knee conditions are:
Kneecap Pain (Patellofemoral syndrome)
The condition is due to incorrect patella alignment and tracking associated with quadriceps muscle imbalance and muscle/soft tissue tightness.
The highly successful treatment of this condition involves a specific rehab program to restore the correct patellofemoral biomechanics, which includes patella taping, quadriceps strengthening exercises, stretches and massage/soft tissue releases.
Acute Knee Injuries (Meniscal or Ligament)
The emphasis on treatment of acute knee injuries is to provide an accurate diagnosis (eg meniscal or ligament) and the appropriate immediate treatment (eg may require immobilisation in a knee brace or crutches). Dale is highly skilled at diagnosing knee injuries and will provide you with an immediate explanation of your type of injury, the treatment and rehabilitation required and advise you on whether you require a scan (X-ray or MRI) or an orthopaedic consultation.
Types of acute injuries are:
- Meniscal (cartilage) tear
- Ligament sprain or rupture (ACL or MCL)
- Patella subluxation /disclocation
Orthopaedics Post-Op (ACL reconstructions, Arthroscopes, Knee Replacements)
Treatment involves reducing the swelling and muscle tightness, improving the range of knee movement, restore a normal walking pattern and provide a graded program of strengthening and balance/stability exercises.
Types of Knee Surgery:
- ACL reconstructions
- Knee replacements
- Meniscal repairs
Dale will provide and implement a specific exercise protocol, in close association with your orthopaedic surgeon, to return your knee to normal function.
Arthritic Knee (Osteoarthritis)
Our goal is to improve your knee function and activity levels by providing you with ways to reduce knee pain, improve knee range of movement and a program of “pain-free” strengthening and stability exercises. We will also advise you on how much exercise/activity you should do, correct footwear and knee brace/taping options.
