Gold Coast Physio – Atkins Health

Allied Health provides a range of diagnostic, therapeutic, technical and support services related to health care. With the opening of the Atkins Health Gold Coast Physio clinic at the Gold Coast Performance Centre, we will be providing our community of clients with an extensive range of Allied Health services, including exercise physiology and remedial massage.

Introducing Brock Foggo

Gold Coast physio Brock Foggo has joined our team of allied health professionals at the Runaway Bay clinic, assisting our clients with condition diagnosis, and creating treatment paths for injuries, chronic disabilities, lack of mobility and dysfunction.

Brock has a special interest in musculoskeletal conditions and sports injuries, whether you are an athlete or just playing sports or get injured during exercise. Along with the rest of the Atkins Health team, you will now have diagnosis, hands-on-treatment, acute care leading into ongoing strength and conditioning, and rehabilitation, all in one place.

What Does a Physiotherapist do?

Physiotherapy helps in the physical rehabilitation, injury prevention, and provides treatment to restore, and maintain a patient’s mobility, function, and general well-being. True to the Atkins Health vision of providing proven, tailored success, our physiotherapists will be focused on pathways that involve the client’s steps to recovery.

A physiotherapist’s role in patient care can be varied depending on the condition and the treating team, with methods including but not limited to diagnosis, hands on therapy and exercise rehabilitation. They have a large scope of practice and what treatment they apply is often guided by the condition and its presentation. They are specialists in diagnosing and assessing physical conditions, injuries and concerns and how they affect the body’s movement and function. One of the key differences between physiotherapy and exercise physiology is that the former occupation includes study of pathology, leading to a physiotherapist being able to perform diagnosis of a condition. Therefore it is not uncommon for a patient to see a physiotherapist for acute conditions, those that are sudden and severe in their onset and require diagnosis, and an exercise physiologist for chronic conditions, those that are ongoing for six months or more.

When Should I See a Physio?

There are a number of health-based triggers that would allow you to get referred to an Atkins Health Gold Coast physio. Since they provide support both for both prevention and rehabilitation, triggers could involve problems caused by injury, disability, or disease.

Here are some of the reasons:

Musculoskeletal injuries
Pain Management, including neck and back pain due to problems with bones or muscles
Problems with bones, joints, muscles and ligaments, such as arthritis or rehabilitation for after effects of amputation
Sports injuries and prevention
Loss of movement due to neurological illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease or Multiple Sclerosis, or trauma to the brain or spine
Fatigue, swelling and stiffness during treatment of cancer or palliative care
Lung problems such as asthma
Disability as a result of heart problems
