At Mint, we strive to help you attain the best possible physical condition so you can participate in life at full capacity. This includes improving your pain, as well as finding and correcting any underlying causes, to prevent the pain from returning. Rather than simply going for a 'quick fix', we will take the time to provide you with the solutions you need to enjoy life pain-free.
 
Make an appointment today for:
  • Musculoskeletal & Spinal Pain Physiotherapy - whether it's back pain, neck pain or any joint pain, our physiotherapists are highly skilled in diagnosing your condition and formulating a treatment plan for your longterm benefit.
  • Sports Injury Physiotherapy - we can get you back on the field / court / pool faster, and ensure you remain injury free. We also have extensive experience rehabilitating players after surgery.
  • Vertigo & Dizziness Physiotherapy - our Principal Physiotherapist Amber has undergone additional training to complement her experience treating vertigo. Did you know 80% of BPPV (the most common form of vertigo) can be fixed with just 1-2 physio sessions!
  • Pregnancy & Postnatal Physiotherapy Care (including pelvic girdle and low back pain, abdominal separation rehab, ultrasound treatment for blocked milk ducts / mastitis and laser therapy for nipple trauma caused by breastfeeding). All women require a postnatal physio assessment, after their medical check (6 wk appointment with Obstetrician / GP).
  • Clinical Pilates
  • Paediatric Physiotherapy - babies with torticollis (tight neck, turned head), plagiocephaly & brachiocephaly (flat spot on bub's head).
  • Children & Teenager Musculoskeletal Assessment - improve your child's sporting performance, quickly rehab injuries & assess their 'growing pains'.
  • Running Analysis - an in-depth video assessment of your running style to improve your performance and efficiency. This biomechanical analysis will also provide insight into your pain & injuries. Our physiotherpist will provide corrections and exercises to ensure you're running at your very best.
  • Surgery & Rehabilitation Physiotherapy - orthopaedic surgeries (eg hip replacements, knee reconstructions, shoulder rotator cuff repairs, spinal surgery) require specific rehabilitation to ensure you achieve the best surgical outcomes. Our Senior Physiotherapist has extensive experience rehabilitating the patients of surgeons at St John of God Hospital Murdoch. We can also provide rehabilitation for abdominal muscles after surgery - even small incisions ('keyhole surgery') can affect the way your muscles work until they are specifically strengthened under a physiotherapist's guidance.
  • 'Core' Assessment - what is your 'core'? Are you overactive, underactive, is it impacting your body? Our experienced Physiotherapists are also highly skilled with our Real Time Ultrasound technology - an ultrasound on your abdomen, where we can see your pelvic floor and other deep abdominals. We can assess if you're using these appropriately and whether they are contributing to any of your 'conditions' e.g. pelvic floor dysfunction (incontinence, pelvic pain, prolapse), hip or back pain.
