Pain has a physical and a psychological component – and it’s important we treat the source of pain on both of these levels.

Pain can be acute – like when you stub your big toe or chronic and persistent – like when you suffer day-in and day-out from lower back pain.

Many people with persistent pain have tried a multitude of different therapies and interventions aimed at getting rid of the pain.

Unfortunately, along the way they often have become less and less active, wasting away muscle resulting in weakness, fatigue and potentially causing other injuries, or secondary injury.
A lack of movement through fear of harm can actually have a devastating impact on a person’s mental and physical wellbeing resulting in a downward spiral of more pain and even less mobility.

With a Masters in Medicine (Pain Management) our principal physiotherapist Tyne Timmers has introduced a holistic approach to chronic pain management at our clinic.

This is informed by psychology to provide a unique biopsychosocial approach to both the assessment and treatment of chronic pain.

By identifying the origins of pain and disability and potential barriers to rehabilitation, this evidence-based approach consistently delivers superior outcomes for our clients in comparison with a solely biomedical approach typical of most physical practitioners.

 

If you’re frustrated with the way your pain has been managed and would like to rid yourself of pain so you can feel and act like yourself again, book an initial appointment with one of our physiotherapists today to get an initial assessment.

The AxIT advantage

One of the tools we use to identify the correct treatment plan to address your pain is the AxIT measurement System. It creates a comprehensive “picture” of almost any muscle in your body, leading to the best possible treatment to reduce pain.

Covid-19/Coronavirus update

 

With the Covid-19 / Coronavirus pandemic the world is facing an uncertain and challenging time. As your healthcare partner, we understand and share the concern and anxiety you may feel about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Bunbury, WA, Australia and globally.

At Aspire Physiotherapy Bunbury the health and wellbeing of our clients and staff is always our highest priority.

To ensure we can continue to offer the high-quality physiotherapy service our clients have become accustomed to, we are taking additional infection control measures to mitigate the risk of infection. The systems we have put in place are guided by the Australian Physiotherapy Association (our professional body) and the Department of Health, and will be monitored and updated accordingly as the pandemic evolves inline with their recommendations.

As a relatively small practice, the number of people we interact with is limited and considered low-volume. We have cancelled our group rehabilitation and pilates sessions and have spread out our appointment times to minimise the congregation of people and allow for our disinfection procedures between appointments. Clients have the option to wait in their car and be notified once the physiotherapist is available (simply phone us upon arrival).

As part of our infection control system we ask our clients to contact us by phone / email to reschedule their appointment if any of the following apply:

  • Symptoms including fever, flu-like symptoms such as coughing, sore throat and fatigue and/or shortness of breath.
  • Recent travel (within 14 days of the scheduled appointment). 
  • Been in contact with person with confirmed Coronavirus in the last 14 days.

Please be vigilant, and if unsure please contact us before attending your appointment.

Thank you for your trust and support as we continue to keep our focus on the health and wellbeing of you and your family.
