Welcome to Back in Business Physiotherapy
Our practice has been established here in North Sydney since 1983, although we have only been known as Back in Business Physiotherapy since 1997.
Unlike many other physiotherapy practices, we still use our hands, with 40 minute one-on-one, individually tailored sessions. You will not be left alone on a machine.
What you can expect of us.
We aim to reduce pain and recurrences by improving your understanding of your condition.A thorough assessment is used to ascertain movement dysfunction. This includes examination of movement patterns, muscle length & strength, as well as quality of muscle activation. Palpation of soft tissue is used to reveal the precise nature of any tightness. Dry needling can be employed along with fascial release techniques to ascertain the gliding of soft tissues as well as ascertain the presence of muscle spasms. Real time ultrasound can be used to confirm the precise nature of fascial gliding restriction. Joint mobilizations are used to assess and treat joint dysfunction.
Exercise regimes are designed to treat the specific pathology, but are also used as a self assessment tool for you to manage your pain as well as attain your performance goals.Our diagnostic equipment includes Real Time Ultrasound and surface EMG.

How we'll help put you "Back in Business!"
We aim to reduce pain and recurrences by improving your understanding of your condition. A thorough assessment is used to assess movement dysfunction. This includes examination of movement patterns, muscle length & strength, as well as quality of muscle activation. Palpation of soft tissue is used to reveal the precise nature of any tightness. Further, diagnostic procedures include assessment of joint function.
Through my formative years as a physiotherapist to elite athletes in Switzerland, I learned the importance of taking a broader perspective. Therefore, if for example we were treating low back pain, I would assess the pelvic girdle, lower limbs, ribcage and shoulders. Similarly, if we were treating the shoulder, I would examine the neck, rib cage and low back-pelvic girdle. Hereby an holistic approach is taken.
Exercise regimes are designed to treat the specific pathology, but are also used as a self assessment tool for you to manage your pain as well as attain your performance goals.
