Mind Heart Body Centre practice Connect TherapyTM (formally known as the Integrated Systems Model): we treat the body as a whole, investigating your area of pain and other areas that are contributing to the problem. We take the physical nerves, muscles, fascia and viscera, as well as the emotional wellbeing of an individual into account during the initial assessment, and formulate an appropriate treatment pathway.

COVID-19 UPDATE
TUESDAY 5TH MAY 2020

1:1 appointments are now available for ALL physiotherapy treatments.
An online service is also available for clients who are unable or would prefer not to attend our rooms.

We are doing extra cleaning around the clinic. Equipment, treatment beds and commonly touched areas are wiped down after each client. The front door of the studio will be left open so there is less need to touch that surface.

Please bring your own towel for treatment sessions as we will not be providing linen for infection control purposes.

Physiotherapists as they have done before will continue to wash their hands between clients. In addition we will be wearing a mask and gloves for physiotherapy treatments due to the close nature of manual therapy.

The Initial Assessment

The type of physiotherapy practised at Mind Heart Body Centre incorporates the use of multiple assessment and treatment techniques, to ensure we are getting to the root of your problem. We offer postural assessments where we will analyse your habitual twists, shears or torsions, then decide how you may be able to correct your posture problems. We also offer dance assessments, sports biomechanical analysis assessments and continence assessments. Furthermore, our Real Time Ultrasound Assessments provides a thorough analysis for problems involving pain to the lower back, pelvis, hip or knee, by monitoring the effective use of the core and deep stabilising muscles.

Our range of physiotherapy treatments

We ensure our physiotherapy can be tailored to each individual from the high-level athlete to pregnant women, and to those post surgery. Specifically for our pregnant women our manual therapy is gentle but effective and our Physiotherapy Exercise Sessions and Pilates classes are designed to aid with discomfort, incontinence or aches and pains. Similarly, with post-surgical rehabilitative physio we will provide you with a specific treatment plan which will help you return to your activities more quickly and more safely.

We offer a series of treatments for sports physiotherapy in Artarmon and other suburbs North of Sydney CBD, to help you get back into the game. Acupuncture or sports taping in the form of rigid strapping, kinesio or dynamic taping, may also be used during the course of treatment as it can provide pain relief, stabilisation of joints, facilitate or inhibit muscle activity, improve lymphatic flow or increase joint proprioception.
