Post-Operative Care

Post-operative care at Southport Doctors is designed to accelerate recovery and restore function following surgery. Our treatments aim to reduce pain, increase range of motion, and strengthen muscles around the surgical site, ensuring a safe and effective return to daily activities.

Chronic Pain Management

Our chronic pain management program offers innovative solutions tailored to reduce discomfort and improve quality of life. Using a combination of hands-on therapy, exercise programs, and pain relief techniques, we address various chronic conditions, promoting long-term well-being.

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy

We offer comprehensive musculoskeletal physiotherapy to address injuries and disorders affecting muscles, bones, and joints. Our approach includes manual therapy, exercise, and modalities to reduce pain, enhance mobility, and prevent future injuries.

Movement and Functional Assessments

Movement and functional assessments at Southport Doctors are key to designing personalised care plans. These assessments help in identifying imbalances and functional limitations, which can then be addressed through targeted interventions to improve overall movement efficiency.

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a specialised service providing relief and rehabilitation for pelvic floor disorders. Our treatments focus on strengthening pelvic floor muscles and alleviating symptoms of incontinence and pelvic pain, enhancing pelvic health and function.
