Bannockburn Physiotherapy Centre
19 High Street, Bannockburn
The Bannockburn Physiotherapy Centre was established by Jeff Oxley in 1992 and continues to provide Bannockburn and the surrounding district with a quality, hands-on physiotherapy service. Our physiotherapists Peter Biskup, Elizabeth Compston, Ashley Lynch and Chris Stewart are highly trained to assess and diagnose your musculoskeletal injuries and help you return to your optimum function.
Physiotherapy is very effective for conditions such as back and neck pain, headaches, jaw pain, sports or workplace injuries, postural problems, joint or muscle pains, osteoarthritis, and for post-operative rehabilitation.
Treatments may include joint mobilisation, remedial massage, dry needling, muscle stretching or gentle spinal manipulation / adjustments (always with patient consent). We also educate you about the cause of your condition, and provide specific strengthening or flexibility exercises with a focus on core stability to prevent a recurrence of your injury.
We also house a small Clinical Pilates studio, which utilises specific resistance equipment to help retrain your spinal muscle control, leading to better posture, better core strength and is excellent at relieveing and preventing back pain. Our physiotherapists set up and monitor individualised programs to ensure you activate the right muscles and reach your goals.
