Injury Management & Rehab – Physio


Our team of experienced physio’s are experts in the treatment of:

  1. back & neck pain
  2. sports injuries
  3. postural problems
  4. running injuries
  5. shoulder, knee & hip pain
  6. headaches
  7. arthritis
  8. post-op rehab including shoulder, knee, hip & spinal surgery

Many of our physio’s have extensive post-graduate experience & advanced training in specific areas including back & neck pain, headaches, running injuries, shoulder management (including athletes as well as posture-related), pelvic problems & core strengthening. You always receive the most effective treatment because this depth of skills & experience combines years of learning with the latest research.

At Central Performance we focus on fully diagnosing & treating the cause of your problems, not just treating your symptoms. We want you to walk away from your initial consultation with a full understanding of your injury, the predisposing factors, treatment methods & ongoing management plan. The first priorities in achieving this are:

  1. a thorough assessment
  2. an accurate diagnosis
  3. fast pain relief

Our physiotherapists use hands-on treatment extensively as well as targeted exercise, education & practical advice to help you take control of your injury & progress as fast as possible. Treatments that we commonly use include:

  1. joint mobilisation & manipulation
  2. soft-tissue massage & myofascial release
  3. muscle energy techniques
  4. personalised exercise for mobility, stability & strength
  5. Clinical Pilates
  6. dry needling
  7. taping
  8. ergonomic & postural correction
  9. orthotic prescription

We also work closely with some of the best specialist centres & imaging practices in Sydney. So if we feel that you need further investigation (eg x-rays, MRI or CT) or specialist referral (eg to a sports physician or orthopaedic surgeon) we are able to organise this for you as quickly & conveniently as possible.

Once your pain is settling we identify & correct background causative factors that have contributed to your current injury & increase your risk of future problems. This step marks your progression from the Relieve phase to the Restore phase of our client care pathway.

You do not need a doctor’s referral to see our physiotherapists

No doctor’s referral is required for any of our private services at Central Performance. However, if you have already seen your doctor & have a written referral, or if you already have any x-rays or other scan results, please bring these along to your first appointment.

On-the-spot health fund rebates

All of our therapists are fully accredited with all health funds, & for your convenience we provide on-the-spot health fund claims through the HICAPS system. If you are in a private health fund please bring your card along with you.

The only time you will need a referral from your doctor is if you are being treated through Workers’ Compensation, Enhanced Primary Care, Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) or Compulsory Third Party Insurance after a car accident. In these instances please bring your GP referral as well as the insurance details or your DVA card.

At your first appointment your physiotherapist will:

  1. take a full history of the details of your presenting problems, as well as gathering information on any past injuries
  2. perform a thorough assessment to determine your diagnosis
  3. explain your injury using models & pictures to ensure you have a thorough understanding of the injury
  4. establish your goals to ensure we are focusing on what really matters to you
  5. start your treatment using a mix of hands-on techniques & specific exercise
  6. provide advice as to what you should & shouldn’t do, as well as giving you strategies to use at home to manage your injury
  7. if you need an x-ray, scan or a specialist review, your physio will arrange for this & discuss this with you in detail
