SquareOne Physiotherapists are experts in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal problems. Our emphasis is on the correction of movement dysfunction which can be the cause of problems such as spinal pain, sports injuries or work related musculoskeletal problems.

We will then prescribe a treatment program that may include evidence based methods such as:
- hands on manual therapy (mobilisation, manipulation)
- soft tissue release techniques
- acupuncture/dry needling
- real time ultrasound (to see your muscles)
- corrective exercise

Real Time Ultrasound
SquareOne Physio’s use Real Time Ultrasound (RTUS) as an assessment and teaching tool for core muscle retraining. Research has shown that activation of the deep lumbar stabilising muscles (transverses abdominis, multifidus and pelvic floor) is reduced in patients with a history of chronic lumbo-pelvic musculoskeletal dysfunction. Reactivation and strengthening of the deep stabilising muscles has been shown to result in reduced levels of pain and improved function compared to non-specific conventional abdominal strengthening exercises in patients with chronic lumbar spine dysfunction.
RTUS is a teaching tool that can be used in patients with conditions such as degenerative disc disease, facet joint arthritis, spondylolisthesis, post abdominal surgery, hip and pelvic pain, post pregnancy low back pain and non-specific low back pain related to motor control abnormalities. It allows patients to see their muscles on a screen as they learn to activate them and thus provides invaluable feedback for rehabilitation and motor relearning of these previously hard to visualise muscle groups. We also use Real Time Ultrasound as a retraining tool for certain hip and shoulder joint injuries.

Physiotherapy has been identified as an excellent alternative to long term pain relief. Providing satinets with evidence based care that educed pain and improves their function. Physios are prepared to discuss the changes with patients who may desire, but can no longer access, these medicines.
Why did access to low-dose codeine-containing medicines change?
The Australian Government is committed to delivering the best health outcomes for Australians through the appropriate regulation of medicines that are deemed by medical experts to have particular risks. This includes low dose codeine-containing medicines.
The evidence shows that medicines containing low-dose codeine combined with paracetamol or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen or aspirin, are generally no more effective than other non-codeine medicines.
The use of low-dose codeine-containing medicines is associated with high health risks. Codeine is an opioid drug closely related to morphine and, like morphine, is also derived from opium poppies. Codeine, like morphine and other opioids, can cause opioid tolerance, dependence, toxicity and in higher doses, death.
Regular use of medicines containing codeine, for example for chronic pain, has led to some consumers becoming addicted to codeine without realising it. The risks associated with codeine use are too high without oversight from a doctor.
What is menopause?
These days often the news of a new baby in the family brings with it grandparent duties! Caring for young children can be very physically demanding on your (ageing) body. Joint and muscular pain is common as we age and conditions such as arthritis can be easily flared up by increased strain on the joints.
Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in a womans life. It is also one of most physically strenuous, with numerous potential short and long term consequences for both body and mind.
