From sporting physiotherapy to spinal physio, back pain and stress-based ailments, physiotherapy treatment brings a healthy balance to all of us.
A new physiotherapy clinic in the Melbourne CBD has recently launched with Chris Hibbert and his team treating patients for sport based injuries as well as stress and pain due to the modern pace of life. While our Sports Physio services are known and well respected, Melbourne CBD Physio offers treatment for the whole family with a focus on children and their development.
Active physio treatment and exercises deliver well being on all levels.
Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy delivers extended opening hours for our city-based clients, many being young professionals with active work and sport lifestyles.
Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy understands the need to offer services outside of the general 9-to-5 when operating from the Melbourne city centre. Our opening hours are from 7:30am until after 6.00pm to ensure city professionals can schedule a physio session, sports training session or physiotherapy treatment around their busy day.
Many younger professionals run a frantic work and sport schedule and this group are often the young accountants and lawyers. They are typically working at their office for extensive hours so the early and late opening times of Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy suit them very well.
The lunchtime hours are also especially popular with Melbourne professionals. Our aim is to provide a physiotherapy environment where the active people who work in the Melbourne CBD can come and receive treatment relatively quickly.
Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy has treated the working people of Melbourne since 1947. Our care extends from Physiotherapy through to expert sports physio and core strength training.
Many of our valued clients are based in the Melbourne CBD for work, though live in the suburbs. Rather than travelling back to their suburb for physio treatment after a day of work in the Melbourne CBD, we find our clients prefer to receive physiotherapy either before or after the working day and in close proximity to their office.
Chris Hibbert and the team at Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy are very happy to extend trading hours to suit the busy lifestyles of our clients.
Sports Physiotherapy plays a big role in the Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy ethos through balancing a workout regime to ensure core body strength is improved.
Physiotherapist Chris Hibbert will assess the source of an injury as a part of the treatment. In many cases, the injury is sustained through weekend sporting activities and will re-occur if not addressed. Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy believes core strength in problematic areas of the body is the key to ensuring injuries and ongoing physiotherapy be kept at a minimum.
Beyond assessment and initial physio treatment, clients with sporting injuries are recommended to work on their core areas with specific physiotherapy exercises. The exercises can be incorporated into a standard workout regime, bringing the problematic areas into balance and negating breakdowns and extended sports physiotherapy treatment.
Physiotherapy and an active sporting life often go hand in hand with Melbourne CBD professionals. Sports Physio treatment plays a large role in helping our active clients stay healthy and fit.
Many CBD professionals work from a sitting position for much of the day. Feeling the need to balance the equation is very natural, so the weekend becomes an opportunity to play a sport of some type. In some cases, the body is changing from static to dynamic too quickly and the muscles can`t cope, leading to injury requiring physiotherapy and sports physio treatment. The trend extends to gym workouts where personal trainers can push hard to achieve results, sometimes leading to a breakdown injury – Again, a physiotherapist is required to rectify the imbalance.
Corporate and community sporting events are a part of the corporate culture in Melbourne. Sports injuries related to this intense workout environment often require physiotherapy treatment.
Corporate Melbourne has a strong sporting and community ethic where many professionals compete in all types of marathon sports to help support the needs of others. Melbourne CBD Physiotherapist Chris Hibbert has a close relationship with many active corporate people in Melbourne and sees a direct relationship between community sporting activities and injury.
Pre-emptive physiotherapy care has shown to benefit the body`s ability to sustain stress and not break down during sports activities.
Chris Hibbert and the team at Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy offer services for the whole family.
Young people are very active and sport plays a large role in every Victorian`s education. Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy has a rich history in improving the health and well being of our clients. This extends to the whole family where the physio treatment and core strength training of our long standing client`s children is becoming a large part of our practice.
Many of the younger people make regular physiotherapy appointments at the start of each sporting season to ensure their systems are in good order for the sporting activity ahead. The physiotherapy sessions are generally repeated in the middle sector of a season when the body has sustained some stress from the ongoing activities.
An ongoing physiotherapy regime will identify high stress areas of the body and exercises can be utilized to negate injury.
Sports Physio - Sports physiotherapy at Melbourne CBD Physio is centered on a twenty year wealth of experience in the active field.
Chris Hibbert and his team collectively have many decades of experience in the area of sports physiotherapy. Chris was the head physio at the Collingwood Football Club for an extended period where his sports physiotherapy experience was utilized day to day. The experience and techniques garnered is used today to treat active physiotherapy needs.
Chris relies on the physiotherapy methods developed through his role within elite sports. His approach is as follows: "With many sports physiotherapy cases you go back to basics, and the big question asked is why are you getting injured? Are there other problems in play, look above and below the joint that they are injured or above and below the muscle and then you can implement what you want to do."
Technology now plays a huge role in sports physiotherapy. Diagnosis can be swift using the new technologies with the aim of developing physiotherapy exercises in conjunction with treatment. This active approach to sports physio reduces the frequency of sports related breakdowns. Contact Melbourne CBD Physio for further information.
Golfers Under Repair - Golf Physiotherapy is a field of treatment available from Melbourne CBD Physio
Chris Hibbert and Dean Little are certified Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) practitioners. Both men share a keen interest in the rehabilitation of golfers suffering injury. Chris is an active golfer and understands that a golfer needs to be very flexible in the thoracic spine. Without this flexibility, other areas of the body are used to balance the shot which can lead to injury and the need for physiotherapy.
