Jane Watson Adult & Paediatric Physiotherapist
- Wahroonga -
I am a physiotherapist who is dedicated to providing high quality, individualised assessment and treatment of patients presenting with pain and movement dysfunction. This requires a thorough initial assessment which provides a reliable diagnosis. Appropriate physio treatment strategies can then be applied and reassessed at subsequent visits.
The aim of physio treatment is to provide patients with effective self-management strategies based on education and personalized exercises and/or management advice. This facilitates optimum results and prevention of further injuries. Years of experience and commitment to continuing education enables me to provide reliable and accurate assessments and effective treatment strategies.
Thorough initial assessment of 45-60 minutes.
One on One
Personalized treatment sessions (1 person at a time) based on patient assessment findings and patient goals.
My aim is to provide patients with effective self-management strategies which are time and cost effective, eliminating the need for ongoing treatment.
Patient education is the mainstay of treatment enabling effective self-management and empowerment.
Commitment to Continuing education enables me to provide up to date evidence based assessment and treatment.
My average number of treatments per patient was less than that of my peers (according to a health fund survey).
Neck and Back Pain Treatment
Back and neck pain is a common occurrence in the general population. The McKenzie method is the most researched and widely used method of assessing and treating low back and neck pain.
Chronic Pain Management
Chronic pain affects 17% of males and 20% of females in NSW and in a significant proportion of these people, it will impact on their daily lives. Major advances have been made in our understanding of pain in the last 40 years.
Neurological Physiotherapy consists of rehabilitation interventions aimed at improving the physical aspects of neurological disorders such as Stroke, Parkinsons, Functional movement disorders and Chronic pain.
Paediatric physiotherapy can be used to assess and treat babies, infants and children who present with some form of impaired physical development or movement dysfunction.
A comprehensive assessment is needed to determine how your arthritis affects you. A programme of advice and exercise can be individualized to suit needs, abilities and preferences.
" I went to see Jane Watson for quite debilitating sciatica. I could not sit down without pain. I had to stand up at work all day and could not drive for long periods. I had seen 2 other physios, my GP and had been referred to a spinal surgeon and had been advised I would possibly need surgery. I was impressed by the way Jane carefully considered the impact different movements had on my back. Her approach is gentle and thorough. After prescribing new exercises and giving me some management strategies, over a period of 6 weeks, I was pain free."
" Jane was invaluable to the recovery of both mine and my teenager son's lower spinal injuries. We both saw her, on separate occasions, under emergency circumstances whilst in acute pain. Jane's physiotherapy treatment was highly effective. Her informative advice for the ongoing management of our issues was integral to our rehabilitation. Jane is an extremely professional, knowledgeable, as well as friendly and caring medical practitioner who we feel very fortunate to have been referred to and treated by. "
