Hastings Physio and Health pride themselves on offering a team of highly skilled physiotherapists to help you meet your health care goals. Our physiotherapy services do not only aim to relieve pain; we identify and solve the underlying physical problem that causes the pain or injury so you can enjoy an active lifestyle on the beautiful Mid North Coast!
Our physiotherapy services begin with an extensive examination of your injury or condition and we will work with you to provide a personalised treatment plan. All our physiotherapists take a “hands-on” approach to treatment. This may include massage, joint mobilisations, muscle stretching and dry needling. To complement our manual skills we may also use modalities to reduce pain and inflammation including hot packs, ice therapy, TENS, interferential and ultrasound. Our physiotherapists are highly trained in exercise prescription and frequently give our patients home exercise programs to help resolve their conditions and maintain lasting outcomes.
