    Clinical Exercise

    Physiotherapy remains able to operate under the guidance of providing care to prevent significant change or deterioration of functional status. Malvern East Physiotherapy provides both clinical consultations and clinical exercise intervention for current and chronic health conditions. A number of our current clients will have been prescribed clinical exercise as part of their overall management plan, and will understand the effectiveness of a specific individualised program.

    All of our interventions and management plans are based on current literature and evidence based practice. As Physiotherapists, we know that exercise is often the ‘gold standard’ intervention for many common clinical conditions including low back and spinal pain, peripheral joint pathologies, and is an essential component of complex and chronic pain management.

    Continuity of clinical exercise is extremely important for symptoms management and maintaining current levels of function. Our body systems change in response to positive stress, e.g clinical exercise, but it needs to be frequent and continuous for ongoing benefits.

    Equally, we know that if an individual were to cease specific clinical exercise, their condition or pain would worsen.

    Please remember that if you are currently participating in any of our clinical exercise streams, it is for health management purposes. Your program has been designed by one of our Physiotherapists with health and functional management underpinning exercise selection and program frequency.

    If you or your family members have any concerns regarding clinical exercise participation, please speak to a member of our clinical team. We are always available for any questions or to discuss alternative options for your ongoing management.

    Last week our team celebrated another great year. 

Whilst Melbourne’s weather had its own plans, we were still determined to keep with the theme of ‘Italian Summer’. We let our hair down to master the art of mixology 🍸🍹followed by an Italian feast. Friday morning Run Club with the team. Practicing what we preach!

Staying stronger, healthier and happier. This time last week, our team was nervously completing their final preparations for @melbmara . 

Congratulations to our physiotherapists and ME community who ran on the day.

Dilen and Michael completed their first marathons. Abbey and Lizzie smashed out their first half. Last Sunday, our team headed down to see our own Matt Warren win a premiership in the VAFA Premier Men’s Competition. Last week our team dedicated a full day to professional development and team building. At ME Physio we pride ourselves on collaboration to put you at the centre of everything we do. 

Our team covered the latest treatments for back pain, financial well-being and finished off the day with salsa dancing. 

Many thanks to our guests including James Schomburgk from @the2ndvisitphysio , Financial Planners Tony Vikram & Cameron Bishop and the @salsafoundation At ME Physio, our focus is on helping you get stronger so that you can keep doing the things you love.

For Tony and Joan, healthier and stronger is being able to navigate the iconic Coast to Coast Walk in the UK! We recently had the pleasure of hosting Elise Bujor from Women’s & Men’s Health Physiotherapy to discuss women’s health issues across the lifespan. 

Our team pride themselves on staying up to date to ensure you’re able to stay healthier, happier and stronger. Huge milestones over the past few weeks with both Tom and Jude from @delasallefc doing their first bit of running in their rehab. 

Tom is on the return from an ankle dislocation whilst Jude is putting in the hard work following a knee reconstruction. Last week our team enjoyed some friendly rivalry at the footy. 

With finals around the corner, some of our team can now safely make holidays plans for September. We recently had the pleasure of hosting the podiatry team from @sespodiatry. 

Our physiotherapists Michael and Abbey presented on rehabilitation following Achilles surgical repair and ankle surgery. Last weekend some of our team got together to complete the 10 km run @runmelbourne. There was no finish line picture as some were keen to run another 15 km!

Whilst running wasn’t for some - brunch was well received by everyone. Shoulder impingement can be incredibly frustrating and painful. 

Tony has been working closely with our physiotherapists Vernon and Dilen to get on top of his shoulder pain. His treatment plan has included hands-on physiotherapy and individualised exercises in our hydrotherapy and strength programs.

    You Deserve to Feel Good.
