Our Services


Jannali Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic Physiotherapists have been involved in sports injury management at the local, state and national level for over 20 years. This experience has included “on field” sports injury assessment, treatment and injury prevention. We have experience in sports injuries relating to Soccer, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Netball, Swimming, Running, Cycling and more recently crossfit and boot camp.


The causes of low back and neck pain are quite diverse. Factors such as postural control, core strength and stability, joint movement, arthritis, muscle strength and flexibility, work habits and other movement problems all can play a role. Jannali Physiotherapists discuss these problems with you according to your presentation. We will assist with “hands-on” techniques, joint mobilisation or stabilisation as required and we will tailor an exercise and stretching program to assist with home management and long term injury management.


Acute and chronic muscle, ligament and tendon injuries, patellofemoral dysfunction, pre and post fracture, arthroscopy and joint replacement will be professionally managed at Jannali Physiotherapy. Knee pain can often be related to absorbing weight inefficently. This can be related to flat feet, muscle weakness and tightness, poor knee, hip and pelvic control and or gait and running biomechanical dysfunction. All will be assessed and managed appropriately.


Acute and chronic muscle, ligament and tendon injuries, fracture, pre and post operative management, shoulder dislocation and AC ligament injuries are quite different in there management. All of these injuries will be well managed according to there requirements at Jannali Physiotherapy.


Foot and ankle pain and injury can be acute or chronic in nature. Acute sprains and strains benefit from being managed quickly with taping, ankle aircastes for ankle ligament injuries and RICE protocol. Xray requests can be ordered as appropriate. Chronic foot and ankle problems are often related to absorbing body weight inefficiently. This can be caused by flat feet, ankle and knee joint restriction, poor ankle, knee,hip and pelvic control problems and / or biomechanical inefficiencies relating to running and walking.


Our Physiotherapists have 20 years experience rehabilitating clients from a wide range of post operative cases. These include arthroscopy, ligament reconstruction, joint replacement and tendon repairs. We have a close relationship with specialists in the area and rehab will be in accordance to specialists protocols.


We can assess and assist with management of problems relating to reduced muscle tone and reduced co ordination, non optimal running and walking techniques, poor postural habits and growth related pain such as Severe’s disease and Osgoodslatters. We can fit and mould Thermoplastic orthotics if required.


Therapists have a special interest in the assessment and treatment of dizziness relating to BPPV (Benign Postural Positional Vertigo).


Darren and his team have been trained to an advanced level in the safe and effective use of dry needling for a variety of sporting, acute and chronic conditions. We will discuss whether this is appropriate for your problem during the course of treatment and no additional fee is needed for this service.
