Synergy Physio was founded by principal physiotherapist Nichole Hamilton in 2007, with a view to providing Synergy Physio patients a thorough assessment, expert treatment and meeting patient needs through longer appointments.
We believe both your time and health are valuable. We spend one on one time with you during your consultation, and do not leave you alone with machines or to attend to another patient’s treatment. We are committed to your individual assessment and care for your recovery. We use a variety of approaches to help you with your health. This includes listening and understanding to your problem in detail, providing a thorough biomechanical assessment, manual therapy or release work, specific exercise rehabilitation, a structured plan for your recovery as well as online and face to face workshops and courses to help you.
All of our patients here at Synergy Physio are important to us and we go the extra step to ensure your health. We dedicate time to get to the bottom of complex conditions and dedicate time to follow up phone calls, checking your scans and communicating with your medical team (if required) to ensure you have a complete team approach to your recovery and health.
We have physiotherapy expertise in the management of spinal and SIJ/pelvic pain, hip pain, pregnancy related problems, women’s health as well as chronic or recurrent pain including sports injuries.
All of our physiotherapy team are mentored in the Connect Therapy™ approach to assessing pain and injury. Connect Therapy™ is a specific form of assessment and treatment developed by Canadian Physiotherapist LJ Lee. This 12 month post graduate training course teaches a unique integrated approach to assessment and treatment, where a whole body biomechanical assessment is used to determine the underlying cause of your symptoms.
Connect Therapy™ incorporates specific assessment techniques to determine what might be contributing to your presenting problem. In this approach, we can see how different parts of the body interrelate; how your previous ankle injury might be contributing to your hip or back pain, how your thorax might be contributing to sports performance or groin pain on the bike, or how your upper neck pain and headaches might be stemming from your running technique!
Nichole has completed her training in 2011 and Jessica Morrin has completed her full four part training in 2017. There are two of only a handful of physiotherapists currently qualified in Queensland in this approach, and together Nichole and Jessica regularly use Connect Therapy™ to assess and treat difficult or complex cases.
Here at Synergy Physio all physiotherapy staff are mentored by Nichole and Jessica in the Connect Therapy™ approach. We regularly utilise this approach to determine any factors that may have been adding to your problems that are ‘outside the square’ and can be missed or overlooked. As a result we commonly assesses chronic or ‘difficult’ cases with a fresh biomechanical approach.
