Physiotherapists work in a wide variety of fields and assist people to find a more effective and efficient way of moving through life, whether it is after an injury, surgery or illness or preventative to enhance wellness and well being.

Therapist Toolkit

Dry needling is a process where thin specialised needles are inserted into specific muscles to release the tension in a muscle, improving mobility of the joint and decreasing pain by stimulating endorphin release in the body. Carel has written a blog about this. Please refer to the blog article for more info on this highly effective treatment approach.

Electrotherapy – Carel also uses complementary treatments to a patient’s condition such as ultrasound, interferential therapy and deep tissue vibrations. All these modalities help the patients’ recovery response also increasing pain threshold and decreasing inflammation.

Tools in his toolkit include:

  • Dry Needling
  • Deep Tissue Massage
  • Neurotherapy
  • Injury on Duty – IOD
  • Chest physiotherapy
  • Mobilization
  • Home visits

“I was referred to Carel van Aswegen Physiotherapy for chronic neck pain, that also resulted in chronic headache. Carel took me through the whole treatment explaining to me what my condition was, and why I haven’t improved from previous interventions. After two sessions, I could see a significant change in my overall wellbeing. My neck pain has decreased and my headaches have been eradicated.”   ~Susan

“Rushing to the casualties, as I was thinking I am having a heart attack, after being cleared I was referred to Carel. I thought it was strange at first not knowing the association with my chest pain and physiotherapy. After being evaluated by Carel, he explained to me what was really going on and adjusted my posture by specific exercises after loosening up my spine and several specific muscles. I haven’t had an incident again and nor do I feel any chest discomfort after being treated by Carel, and I can highly recommend him.”  ~Pieter
