SOLUGEL is a solution for the temporary relief of muscle and joint pain. Fisiocrem contains natural active ingredients to provide relief for common muscle, joint and back pains resulting from everyday life and sports injuries. Fisiocrem contains a specially formulated combination of natural plant extracts for the temporary relief of muscular aches and pains, lower back pain, next pain and sports injuries.
The simple design of the Spikey ball massages the skin and muscles using the 230 densely packed, raised points on the ball’s textured surface. The increased blood flow stimulated by the massaging action helps to remove muscle tension, while the dimples affect the sensory organs of the skin, increasing afferent stimulation of the nervous system. This is particularly important when dealing with the soles of the feet and muscular injuries.
SRC Pregnancy Shorts
SRC Pregnancy Shorts are suitable for women to wear from 12 weeks to late term. With special reinforced panels, they provide support and reduce pain and assist your vital pelvic muscle groups. These pregnancy shorts will keep your muscles stimulated and prepare you for labour and delivery.

Orthotics (Custom Made)
A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes – they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole – and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.
The orthotics are fitted by a physiotherapist and are specifically assessed using the latest gait scan technology to get a precise dynamic scan of your foot during the gait cycle.
Orthotics – Vasyli
Vasyli EasyFit Orthotic- With this orthotic the outer edge has been removed which removes a fair portion of the bulk of the orthotic. The main structure of the orthotic has not been altered, so it will still provide the same support and benefit as the other orthotics. This makes the Easyfit perfect for smaller, tight fitting dress shoes or football boots.
Vasyli Slimfit Orthotic- These orthotics have even more of the bulk of the orthotic removed, particularly around the heel cup. Some control is lost around the heel, but if an orthotic is required for women’s dress shoes or narrower football boots, then using this orthotic is the perfect option.
Lumbar Roll (Round)
The lumbar roll promotes back and postural support and encourages people to avoid slouching.
Also helps to align the spine. Perfect for office chairs and use in car for those long car trips.
The Lumbar Roll “D”
The Lumbar Roll ‘D’ should be positioned in the hollow of the back in the lumbar region. It is half the width of the standard Lumbar Roll.
A portable back support that fits most flat-backed chairs
Clinically designed to provide better back support and reduce back pain.
Therabands are resistant bands that are available in 5 color-coded levels of resistance. Proper use of these systems for resistive exercise provides both positive and negative force on the muscles, improving strength, range of motion and cooperation of muscle groups. Color-coded progressive resistance gives at-a-glance documentation of progress from one level to the next. A thorough assessment by a physiotherapist will determine what colour you will need to start on.
The use of a TENS machine should be as one part of a pain management program under the guidance of your doctor/healthcare practitioner.
TENS is an abbreviation of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation . Transcutaneous means “across the skin”. In simple terms, a tens machine stimulates your nerves via an electrical current through your skin. TENS machines are available for hire or for purchasing at Ormond Physiotherapy.
TENS machine can be used during pregnancy to aid in labour. TENS is usually recommended for use from the very beginning of your labour to provide some pain relief (Blincoe 2007: 519, MIDIRS 2008: 14) .
You could start using it when you’re getting regular contractions or backache. You may find that the machine works better at relieving your backache than your abdominal pain (OAA 2012, Simkin and Bolding 2004) . This is probably because the pads are on your back.
Use of a foam roller helps to break up or relax tight muscles and adhesions formed between muscle layers and their surroundings. Imagine you are tenderizing your own muscles. They should be soft and supple like a baby’s muscles. However, if our muscles are not taken care of properly we can experience loss of flexibility, adhesions, and painful movement. The compression allows normal blood flow to return and restoration of healthy tissue. Our bodies naturally want to be healthy and strong, but sometimes an extra boost is needed to achieve optimal muscle and tissue health.
To foam roll properly, apply moderate pressure to a specific muscle or muscle group using the roller and your bodyweight. You should roll slowly, no more than one inch per second. Consult one of our therapists at Ormond Physiotherapy for a more tailored stretching program!
Designed for all sleeping positions and physiques, the all-natural, high-quality Naturelle latex pillow conforms to the shape of your head and neck to provide continuous support throughout the night.
Made of natural latex, from the rubber tree, these wonderful pillows never require fluffing, maintain their shape and provide maximum air flow, preventing moisture and heat build-up.
Contoured Memory foam
Memory foam molds to the body in response to heat and pressure, evenly distributing body weight. It then returns to its original shape once you remove the pressure. When you lie on the memory foam, the heat from your body softens it in appropriate points so this helps to support your body along the curves and natural lines of the body. Memory foam manufacturers claim this helps relieve pain and thereby promotes more restful sleep.
