The Perform+ Shoulder Clinic is a division of Perform Physio + Pilates, created specifically to care for clients with shoulder pain, injuries and recovering from surgery. We provide the highest quality advice and care based from the latest research to ensure that our clients achieve a full recovery and return to the active lifestyle they love.

Shoulder injuries are complex and multifactorial, often seriously impeding a persons capacity to perform basic daily tasks, occupational duties and sporting activities. Given the shoulder’s intricate nature, it is imperative that client’s receive an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment including a individualised rehabilitation program, to ensure an optimal outcome is achieved.

If you have shoulder pain, or feel that your shoulder is either restricted or unstable or have recently undergone surgery, the Physio's at Perform+ Shoulder Clinic will be able to help.

Our Shoulder Clinic has a strong emphasis on providing our clients with an accurate diagnosis, while developing a deep understanding of our client’s goals and circumstances. We are then able to tailor an individualised rehabilitation program to meet and exceed our client’s daily and athletic goals.

AxIT Shoulder Strength Testing

At the Perform+ Shoulder Clinic we provide Shoulder Strength Testing to specifically guide our tailored rehabilitation programs. The testing identifies any asymmetries between your injured and non-injured shoulder, setting clear base lines and targets on where your rehabilitation process needs to be directed.

We utilise this strength testing with all our instability and post surgical clients. After particular milestones are met after surgery we will perform strength testing at 6 months, 9 months and 12 months to provide all of our clients with an individualised tailored rehabilitation program and give them assurance their rehabilitation is on track.

This strength testing procedure also gives us clear indicators that an athlete is safe and ready to return to sport.

After your testing session you will receive a detailed report that highlights your strengths and areas that you need to improve during your rehabilitation journey. Your strength guides our criteria based decision making allowing us to clearly advise you on your readiness to safely return to sport and perform at your best.

How Does the AxIT Strength Testing Session Work?

The AxIT system performs a complete performance assessment of strength and power for any muscle in your body, as well as the movements you need to perform daily activities or sports.

An AxIT assessment collects meaningful and actionable data measuring strength and power imbalances to identify key areas to be tracked, targeted and improved over time.

Using data from the AxIT system, community norms from the literature we are able to better design rehabilitation and training programs, which will result in achieving a full recovery and a safe return to life, sport and high level performance.

The AxIt system measures the effectiveness of the intervention and compares improvements after one week, one month, 6 months or one year. Your data is safely stored so you can always compare results and be reassured that your progress is being achieved and you are on right track to achieve your goals
