WHAT THEY'RE SAYING
NORTHERN BEACHERS WHO'VE EXPERIENCED THE DIFFERENCE
CONDITIONS FIXIO FIXES
Neck Pain and Headaches
Neck pain and headaches are highly undesirable life modifiers that can impact on your work, your sleep, your sport and your overall quality of life. The key to correct treatment of headaches and neck pain is the thorough understanding of the complex relationship between posture, nerve mobility and neck strength and how this can influence the nerves providing sensation to the head. Neck pain and headaches fall under the category of musculoskeletal physiotherapy, dealing with more chronic postural and ergonomic related pain. Fixio Sports Physio and Pain Solutions has one of the best Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists in Sydney on the team. With this expertise, it is common for our Titled Musculoskeletal Physio to treat other physiotherapists who travel to see him for their own headache, neck and back pain symptoms.

Low Back Pain and Sciatica
Lower back pain is an ailment that most of us will experience in our lives. However only a few talk to a low back pain expert such as a Titled Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist, physios who other physios see for their back pain! Back pain can manifest in many ways, with no 2 presentations being alike. The importance of seeing someone who understands the intricacies of lower back pain is paramount. Each of the physios at our Dee Why Physios clinic have been trained by our Musculoskeletal Physio to ensure that every person who walks through the doors will not only get relief in their first visit, but also understand the underlying cause of WHY they have pain as well as exercises to get them moving again.

Knee Injuries and Pain
Knee pain can stop you from entering the Sun Run due to how debilitating it can be, or it can put your life on hold having to have a reconstruction. Knee pain can occur gradually, especially in runners, though all sports in which changing directions in key can result in knee injuries. Our Dee Why Physiotherapy clinic has extensive experience with knee pain in high grade athletes and weekend warriors alike, from mild knee pain around the kneecap to severe complex damage and knee pain which requires surgical intervention and surgery rehabilitation. All physiotherapists at Fixio Sports Physio and Pain Solutions are training in a unique approach to knee pain to ensure you can continue play while doing your rehab if it is safe to do so. We have close ties to expert knee surgeons on the Northern Beaches if there is ever the need to refer on for surgery. Read more about knee conditions such as ACL tears.
As the key load bearing joint, joining the lower limb to the rest of the body, the hip gets put through its paces. Whether a sporting injury in ballet dancers, gymnasts, surfers, rockclimbers, soccer and footy players or a wear a tear issue of arthritic change, we have the tools to be able to assess and treat your hip pain before it stops you from playing your sport of choice. Read more about Hip Injuries.
Shoulder and Elbow
Shoulder pain can niggle so badly that it stops you from entering the Cole Classic or getting out in the surf at Dee Why Point. These repetitive strain or overuse injuries of the rotator cuff and bursitis of the shoulder that seem to have developed out of nowhere are our bread and butter at Fixio Sports Physio Northern Beaches. Yet the shoulder can also have traumatic injuries; namely shoulder dislocations in younger bodies and tears of the rotator cuff in slightly less young bodies. All of our physios have experienced their own shoulder discomforts in their respective sports and know the keys of balancing your rehab with keeping you in play while your shoulder injury recovers. Read more about Shoulder and Elbow pain.
Ankle and Foot Injuries
With the amount of use your ankle and foot get everyday, it’s difficult to ignore ankle pain or foot injuries. With the regular amount of use they require, it can also be a tricky balance getting the rehabilitation correct. We work to identify what is causing the pain, to get you back on your feet as soon as possible. Once moving again, the rehabilitation of ankle injuries revolves around correcting biomechanics, strength and balance around the area. We are the choice physiotherapy clinic for specialist ankle surgeons on the Northern Beaches, so you know you are in the right hands at Fixio Sports Physio Dee Why.

You've found an expert Physio in Dee Why
If you're not convinced you've found the experts, allow us to offer some tips... Searching for and finding the right physio for your needs online can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. You could spend hours searching through Google for the right sports physio, musculoskeletal physiotherapist; even narrowing down your search to Northern Beaches physios is likely to give yourself an extra headache! So how do you find the best physio for your condition? Like many other health professions, physiotherapists have a vast array of areas of expertise. All practitioners have to be highly educated and officially registered to practice with the governing body, adhering to strict standards of service. Working out which physiotherapist can treat your specific condition requires more than simply typing in to Google. Luckily there are a number of hints and tricks to finding the right local physio in Dee Why for your needs, by following these tips below you will go a long way to finding that special someone.
Check for what areas the physiotherapist specialises in
Physiotherapists cover a huge range of areas of practice and not all physios are experts in the type of pain or condition you are suffering from. You wouldn’t go to a podiatrist to get an eye test, so why visit a physio who doesn’t specialise in the area of pain you are experiencing? For example, when it comes to musculoskeletal physiotherapy, did you know that only 5% of practicing physiotherapists attain the rank of “Titled Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist”? The Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) defines a Titled Physio as “highly qualified physiotherapists with expert knowledge and skills. They undergo a rigorous selection process to ensure that they achieve and maintain exceptional standards of clinical experience and knowledge. The APA Title serves as a professional mark of distinction.” For issues like Back and neck pain, Nerve pain (especially sciatica, carpal tunnel), Chronic injuries, Arthritis/osteoarthritis and other aging related pain, postural dysfunctions including scoliosis, kyphosis (hunched back) and flat feet – don’t sell yourself short by visiting a physio not ranked in that top 5%.
Ask your doctor for their advice
Many Northern Beaches doctors work hand in hand with highly trained physiotherapists to treat long term and immediate physical pain for their patients. They are some of the best people to give advice on who to see in the local area with the skills and specialisation to help you recover faster.
Phone a friend
There aren’t many better ways to finding the right physio than getting a referral from a friend. Getting confirmation from a friend on the skills of a physio will give you much more insight than Googling away aimlessly for hours. They’ll be able to give you firsthand knowledge of their expertise, bedside manner and obviously on whether or not they were able to help their own issues.
Check on the Australian Physiotherapy Association
Not checking to see whether a physiotherapist is registered with the Australian Physiotherapy Association is like playing Russian roulette with your musculoskeletal system. If they aren’t registered on there, you might as well go and see Doctor Nick from the Simpsons.
Consult Facebook and have a look at relevant groups on social media
It’s become increasingly common today for Facebook groups related to sports and health and fitness to share stories about their injuries and post reviews of their tips and experiences with various sports or injury related professionals. If you’re uncertain, put a post up along the lines of “Does anybody know an awesome physio in Dee Why” and you’re bound to get a few bites. Always check and verify their advice with other methods though!
Consult Doctor Google
Once you’ve narrowed your search scope down, it is important to check Google reviews and other community reviewed websites to check what the word on the street about the physio is. Keep in mind again, Google reviews aren’t the be all and end all, but they do play an important part in finding a reputable and skilled physio for your needs.
Ask for a referral from your local sporting club
If you play in a team or individual sport, it is likely that your club has knowledge of physiotherapists that are reputable and skilled in specific areas of the body. Sporting clubs don’t just recommend any old physio either, because they are made up of trained and skilled individuals themselves, the last thing they’d be doing is recommending a physio with a Kelloggs Cornflakes degree.
Finding the right physio in Dee Why can be a daunting task if you don’t know where to start. By following those tips and verifying claims and data between a number of different sources and referral points, you are much more likely to find a physio who is capable of looking after your pain or injury in the most professional and up to date way possible
