Electrotherapy provides people with a drug-free, non-invasive and non-addictive treatment option. Electortherapy is a common treatment within physiotherapy. Electrotherapy is a treatment based on electrical stimulation. It uses a specific range of energy waves of an electromagnetic spectrum to produce the desired physiological as well as chemical body responses. Unlike drugs and any other forms of treatment, it helps improve and manage a number of symptoms without compromising health due to side effects.

Soft Tissue Massage is a very common physiotherapy treatment. It is a very hands-on treatment which is often provided by masseurs. Our staff at Olympic Physiotherapy are established soft tissue masseurs who will provide you with a fantastic massage. Soft tissue massage is usually used on muscles, tendons and ligaments to relieve some of the tightness by decreasing the scar tissue within the area. Some of our clients also have regularly massage sessions to reduce the risk of injury. Ask about our Massage Check-Up clinics.
Mobilisations are a very effective method of increasing range of movement within the joint. Our physiotherapists are trained with the Maitland Peripheral Mobilisations.
