OUR APPROACH

Movement is medicine

Edgecliff Physiotherapy is a dynamic team of experienced practitioners committed to helping our clients resolve their presenting health concerns through holistic hands-on treatment complemented by exercise prescription and re-education of movement patterns. We view your body as an integrated whole, that’s why we’ve developed a treatment model that acknowledges how the vital systems within us integrate and influence each other.

 

Not only do we aim to reduce immediate pain or discomfort, our goal is to improve your overall wellbeing through a combination of manual and movement therapies that allow you to explore your fuller potential. The majority of our clients are recommended to participate in our proven Key Moves® therapeutic exercise programme for their rehabilitation and ongoing development.

Proven

The Key Approach Model, developed by Josephine Key and colleagues, explains the link between pain syndromes and movement dysfunctions of the spine and limb girdles. Spinal movement dysfunction is corrected by modifying movement behaviour in order to address the symptom/s the dysfunction has caused. We ‘train the brain to fix the pain’.

Holistic

The Key Approach is a practical clinical model which adopts an integrated systems approach. This involves a consideration of the interdependence of all the body’s systems, but in particular – neural, myo-fascial, and skeletal functioning.

Caring

Client-centred care is at the heart of everything we do. In a professional and compassionate manner, we meet our clients wherever they are on their healing journey and support and guide them towards optimal health and wellbeing. Better health begins here.
