Richard Costin Physiotherapy
I have been delivering physiotherapy services to the Canberra community for 10+ years, providing assessment, diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of conditions.
My interests involve treating all musculoskeletal injuries and conditions for people of all ages, applying strong skills in manual therapy and evidenced-based exercise prescription to help you reach your goals.
Initial consultations are 1 hour to ensure a thorough assessment and hearing your story, provide treatment, exercises and an ongoing treatment plan.
Subsequent appointments are 30 minutes.
Ranging from joint mobilisations to massage and taping to help modulate pain and improve movement.
Utilises acupuncture needles to target tight tender sites in muscles, or trigger points, to help improve blood flow, decrease muscle tightness and modulate pain.
Exercise with confidence in a heated pool (at the Malkara School), where buoyancy and reduced joint loading can help improve pain, stiffness and swelling. Great for any musculoskeletal injury, post-operative orthopaedic rehab, arthritis and balance problems.
