Physiotherapy In Hawthorn

Welcome to Leap Back Physio, among Hawthorn’s finest physiotherapy clinics.

As you might know, physiotherapy helps in the diagnosis, management and treatment of musculoskeletal symptoms and injuries, pain, stiffness and weakness. It can also help with injury prevention and rehabilitation. At Leap Back Physio, we intend to have our patients achieve their highest level of optimum physical activity and quality of life. We can assist you with:

  • Shoulder injuries
  • Neck and back pain
  • Elbow, wrist and hand problems
  • Hip and groin pain
  • Knee injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Ankle and foot injuries
  • Rehabilitation programs
  • Biomechanical assessments
  • Pilates assessments
  • Musculoskeletal screening for athletes

Our physiotherapists provide a comprehensive assessment and design a customized treatment plan for you, which takes into account your current capacity, lifestyle, limitations and medical history and the life that you want to live from here onwards.

During treatment, they use various hands on pressure techniques along with acupuncture, to relieve muscle spasm and joint stiffness and to strengthen muscles. We also suggest exercises and employ soft tissue massage to relax tight muscles, and different types of taping to alleviate pain. At Leap Back, we also do a postural assessment tailored to your work, home or sporting activity, and guide on ways to improve posture and prevent injuries and chronic pain as a result of bad postures. We recommend a custom palette of strengthening exercises that can be used to correct any muscle imbalances. Physiotherapy plays a key role in healing and rehabilitation, by stimulating the body’s natural healing process.
