Back Pain Treatment
Back pain effects over 80% of the population and is the most common condition treated at Bodyworks. Our physiotherapists have a great deal of experience and have undergone advanced training in the assessment and treatment of back pain. Each patient at Bodyworks is initially given a thorough assessment to identify which structures are causing their problem. Once this has been determined your physiotherapist will decide which of the evidence based treatment techniques and exercises will be most effective in resolving your problem. We believe strongly in long term solutions rather than a quick fix so you will also be given advice on exercises to help prevent problems in the future.
We have developed a reputation for excellence in physiotherapy. "Our goal is to make you feel good again." Visit us at our Kallangur or North Lakes clinic and speak to one of our friendly physiotherapists to find out how we can help you to FEEL GOOD AGAIN.
Our highly skilled and experienced physiotherapists will spend time taking a detailed account of your problem before performing a physical examination in order to make a clinical diagnosis. A thorough explanation of your problem will be given to you along with a treatment plan.

Massage can be used for stress relief and relaxation or in conjunction with other therapies to help speed up recovery from injury.
Pilates is a great way to improve core stability, flexibility and promote better posture and movement.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest recorded forms of medicine, having been used for over 3000 years in China. Modern science has shown that acupuncture stimulates the brain to produce natural pain relieving chemical endorphins. These help the body to heal itself and give pain relief.
Headaches and Migraines
Our headache and migraine clinic is run by Principle Physiotherapist Mark Turner who is one of the few certified Watson Headache® Approach practitioners in Australia. Several of our Physiotherapists have also undergone training with Dean Watson into his ground breaking techniques for treatment of all types of headaches and migraines including tension headaches, cervicogenic headaches, cluster headaches, menstrual headaches, vestibular migraines, etc.
Real Time Ultrasound
Bodyworks Physiotherapy has two state of the art Real Time Ultrasound (RTUS) machines. Research has shown that back pain (even one episode), will effect the activation of your deep spinal stabilising muscles. This can lead to a recurrence of low back pain, often within twelve months of the initial episode. At Bodyworks we use RTUS to help our patients understand how to activate these important muscles. We also use RTUS in the assessment and retraining of the pelvic floor and deep hip muscles.
Whole Body Vibration
We have one of the few Galileo Whole Body Vibration machines in Brisbane. This is the same machine chosen by NASA to rehabilitate their astronauts on their return from space.
