Conditions – Cardiovascular Health

Are you living with cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, or other related conditions? Struggling to maintain an active and fulfilling lifestyle? Heart disease can have a significant impact on your well-being. At Purpose Physiotherapy, we offer highly effective solutions for preventing, managing and improving heart disease and related conditions.

At our clinics in Thirroul and Woonona, Purpose Physiotherapy has a team of experienced physiotherapists and exercise physiologists that are experienced in improving your cardiovascular health. Our approach to helping you is as follows:

  1. Comprehensive assessment to determine both the diagnosis and the root causes (we may use imaging/scans where necessary).
  2. Tests and measurements to ensure we monitor progress and improvements.
  3. Holistic view of your entire body, including posture, alignment, mobility, strength, sleep, stress, nutrition and your nervous system.
  4. Treatment plan that relieves pain and targets the root causes, including massage, joint manipulation, dry-needling, exercise programs (core strength, Pilates and movement retraining) and education. This plan will specifically target your individual goals.
  5. Ongoing prevention options through clinical Pilates and small-group exercise.

By taking this approach, our team will get you not only moving with Purpose, but living with Purpose as well.
