At Pilates Power and Physiotherapy Cronulla we strive for the highest quality clinical assessment and treatment of your problem, may it be pain or stiffness, local or referred symptoms, sport injuries, repetitive stress injuries, headaches & migraines and many more.
Your personal goals and expectations are very important to us as they help to shape a treatment plan which is tailored to you and may include:
- Manual therapy
- Joint, soft tissue and nerve mobilisation
- Fascia release
- Motor control strategies / Pilates exercises
- Biomechanical counselling for workplace and at home
While some conditions resolve after only 1-2 sessions, others will take time and patience to be correctly managed. You will play an active role in your recovery and we believe this is only possible if you understand your condition and the steps to best manage them. This will lead to a smooth transition from hands-on treatment to an increasingly independent management regime.
We also offer Physiotherapy treatment as part of Chronic Disease Management Plans (CDMs), DVA, NDIS, Workers Compensation claims & CTP insurance claims (conditions apply).
Our team of Physiotherapists include:
- Barbara Wood – Director
- Karina Craig – Director
- Nikki Scott

What is Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy?
Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy is a specialisation in general physiotherapy which employs advanced clinical assessment and diagnosis methods of muscles, joints and nerves. This special training is undertaken at a postgraduate level via a Masters of Health Science (Manipulative Physiotherapy).
Treatment for Headaches & Migraines
Our physiotherapist, Barbara Woood, also specialises in the treatment of headaches and migraines, which are musculoskeletal events and not vascular (as proposed until recently). They result from the brain misinterpreting information from the upper neck region. Therefore, migraines and most other headaches can be successfully treated via manual manipulation and desensitisation of the signals coming from the brainstem.
Barbara attended the 2 day Watson Headache® Institute, Level 2 Consolidation Headache Course titled “The Role of C1-C3 Cervical Afferents in Primary Headache”. The course was held on 19th & 20th June 2021, in Sydney, Australia and presented by Dr Dean H Watson PhD, Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist. For further information, go to: www.WatsonHeadache.com.
Book an Appointment with Reception to find out how you, or a family member can be helped with your headache and/or migraine. If you have a friend or colleague who has headache or migraine please let them know that Barbara can help by providing a skilled assessment of the upper cervical (neck) spine to determine if the neck is the cause of or contributing to their headache or migraine.
