Our team of experienced physiotherapists are experts in the treatment of:
Many of our physio’s have extensive post-graduate experience and advanced training in specific areas including back and neck pain, headaches, running injuries, shoulder management (including athletes as well as posture-related and shoulder surgery), pelvic problems and core strengthening. You always receive the most effective treatment because this depth of skills and experience combines years of learning with the latest research.
At Central Performance we focus on fully diagnosing and 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 and ongoing management plan. The first priorities in achieving this are:
At each appointment you will be given all of the time needed to get the biggest possible improvement for your injury. Our physiotherapists use hands-on treatment extensively as well as targeted exercise, education and practical advice to help you take control of your injury and progress as fast as possible. Treatments that we commonly use include:
We also work closely with some of the best specialist centres and 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 and conveniently as possible.
Once your pain is settling we identify and correct background causative factors that have contributed to your current injury and increase your risk of future problems. This step marks your progression from the Relieve phase to the Restore phase of our client care pathway.
No doctor's referral is required for any of our private services at Central Performance. However, if you have already seen your doctor and have a written referral, or if you already have any x-rays or other scan results, please bring these along to your first appointment.
All of our therapists are fully accredited with all health funds, and 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.
