Physical Therapy

At Aspire we go the extra mile for our patients, because we care.

We believe that in order for you to achieve the best outcome possible, a commitment is needed from us as much as it is needed from you. We therefore see our patients for a full hour on the first appointment. Communication is an integral part of the healing process. Our therapists listen to your concerns whilst thoroughly and holistically examining your body. Your treatment plan is then carefully tailored to meet your needs. Aspire’s creative therapists provide one-on-one rehabilitation, hands-on therapy and evidence-based advice. When done in the right way, physical therapy can often delay or reduce the need to undergo surgery.

OUR APPROACH: The Aspire Difference

1.We look at the whole body and person – not just the area that hurts. Sometimes where you feel pain is not necessarily the source of your problem. Finding the true root of pain can be complicated, but is vital if we are to see real, long-term improvements. Many therapists fail to address these issues, which can become chronic and crippling. For example, you may be surprised to learn that pain in your leg can be caused by a problem originating in your spine!

Untitled-1Common sources of pain include:

  • Biomechanical imbalances in the body
  • Weakness and postural habits
  • Incorrect footwear
  • Work-related desk or chair placements
  • Stress, emotional and environmental factors

2.Our therapists use a hands-on, manual therapy approach alongside evidence-based exercise rehabilitation and cutting edge equipment. Hands-on treatment is an integral part of the healing process!

3.Our appointments are always at least 30 minutes and one-on-one with your dedicated therapist. After your treatment you will have the unique opportunity to use our equipment and your therapy will continue under the guidance of our rehabilitation aides.

4.Our therapists are compassionate, highly skilled and motivated individuals. Aspire is a sought after place for therapists to treat, and we therefore only work with the best, most talented therapists in the city.
