What our Physiotherapists treat
At Any Stage Physiotherapy, we are here to help you live a pain-free, functional life so you can meet your individual goals
Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy involves advanced assessment, diagnosis and treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joint conditions. These injuries may occur after acute events such as running, jumping, kicking, lifting a heavy object or throwing a ball. Examples of more persistent musculoskeletal pain could involve prolonged sitting, yard work, and consistent throwing or kicking.
Muscle/tendon injuries include (but are not limited to):
- shoulder injuries to the rotator cuff
- forearm (tennis elbow),
- low back etc.
Joint/ligament injuries include (but are not limited to):
- low back
- ankle etc.
NORTH RYDE SPORTS PHYSIOTHERAPISTS
Sports injuries are experienced due to the specific demand of your sport, meaning these injuries are slightly different from day-to-day life injuries. The demands of each sport are different and require the body to be conditioned in a way that allows for these demands to be performed at maximal effort on a regular and consistent basis. The requirements of sport often have you put more force on specific body parts, including joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons, thus making them prone to injury.
At Any Stage Physiotherapy, we have a wealth of knowledge across multiple sports, including (but not limited to) baseball, AFL, rugby and soccer. By conducting a thorough and individualised assessment, we help resolve your pain by implementing evidence-based treatment specific to your sport. This approach is supported by focusing on your performance and development to ensure you return to pre-injury performance and functionality.

Persistent (Chronic) Pain Physiotherapy
Any Stage Physiotherapy understands persistent pain and the potential effects on someone’s day-to-day lifestyle. Persistent pain, known more commonly as chronic pain, has been classified as pain lasting for at least three months. This pain can be constant, or it can come and go.
Persistent pain can interfere with your work, sport and social commitments. Persistent pain may be experienced in any region of the body, with various symptoms including aching, burning, shooting pains, stiffness etc. Common types of persistent pain may be related to arthritis, back/neck pain, or muscular pain, including fibromyalgia.
It is essential to identify the cause of your persistent pain, noting that it may be multifactorial. Persistent pain may be related to a physical injury, which is easily assessed. However, persistent pain can often be intensified based on past experiences, stress and anxiety.
Here at Any Stage Physiotherapy, after conducting a thorough assessment, we implement an active approach to persistent pain, providing an empowering experience as we help you understand your condition.
We use active movements and exercises tailored to your needs to demonstrate how you can implement strategies independently. These strategies lead to a self-management style of treatment, allowing you to confidently implement strategies to prevent flare-ups or manage exacerbations of pain. This style helps progress you towards pain-free function and will enable you to reach your goals.
Pre & Post Operative Rehabilitation
Pre-operative rehabilitation (Prehab) is a functional exercise-based treatment prescribed to improve people’s strength and function before surgery. By undertaking a structured prehab program, you can significantly improve your response to surgery.
Here at Any Stage Physiotherapy, we can develop a tailored pre-operative rehabilitation program that is designed to assist you with:
- An individualised exercise program, optimising your range of motion, strength, endurance and coordination before surgery;
- Information on what to expect immediately after surgery;
- Information on how to manage pain, swelling, sleep and movement after surgery;
- Information on how to reduce the risk of post-operative complications
Our Physiotherapists are here to assist you in recovering from surgery and progressing your movement, strength and function, as you endeavour to reach your goals. Any Stage Physiotherapy takes the guesswork out of your post-operative treatment.
Postoperative rehabilitation is a systematic and tailored approach that your Physiotherapist implements and is often guided, initially, by surgeon protocols.
How Any Stage Physiotherapy assists with post-operative rehabilitation:
- Advice, education, and guided support through each stage of your recovery;
- Pain, swelling and scar treatment strategies;
- Progression through mobility, strength, balance and coordination requirements;
- A guided return to daily activities and independence;
- Implementation of activity and sport-related movements;
- A return to recreational activities and sport
A structured treatment plan by Any Stage Physiotherapy, with an individualised approach, can provide goal-related progressions through each of the stages mentioned above.
