-  Clinical Treatment for Swimmers  -

The team at Perth Integrated Health are specialise in the treatment and performance enhancement of swimmers at the novice, recreational and elite level. We already look after Swimmers at the National and State level as well as many of the local swim clubs.  We work clinically in concert with the state's peak body Swimming WA to assist swimmers in their performance enhancement, fitness, injury management and recovery plans. We also conduct all of the clinical workshops for the state wide Rec Swim program

The clubs describe personal best times, qualifying for the finals and achieving national record times as the numerous benefits of being under the clinical treatment at Perth Integrated Health.

Anecdotes from swimmers, parents and coaches tell the story of improved strength, symmetry, stroke technique and pace in the swimmers. This is from swimmers who have received neuromuscular care and who have taken part in Huber sessions which is state of the art technology for performance enhancement. Huber can be used to imitate all of the swimming strokes. Iimproving strength, symmetry, core stability and balance, then assists with enhancing stroke technique with their trained coach.

3. We treat runners at all levels and even have our own running and cross training fitness program in concert with other programs for cyclists and swimmers.

Our Synergy Partner Trievents

Our rich tradition and synergy with the organisers Tri Events continues and in this brief news edition we feature an article by Katey Gibb, elite Triathlete who is ranked #1 in her age group in Australia and #13 globally for the same.

Testimonial from Katey Gibb

Katey Gibb writes about her positive experiences with us at the Perth Integrated Health clinic and thoughts for other triathletes to consider.

This article also features how we will be bringing our clinical support to you at this event this Sunday, so please read on about Katey Gibb's story.

“I have been participating in triathlons for nearly 3 years, with the 2010/2011 season being the first I have competed in the Open category. To be competitive at this level I have to incorporate 17 hrs of training a week around a 9 to 5 job and a family life, making it essential that I remain injury and fatigue free.

In late 2010, I went to see Ian at Perth Integrated Health Clinic (PIHC) to assist with injury prevention, recovery and strength. My main aim was to increase recovery time, indentify any problem areas and weaknesses I might have before I embarked on more training and the coming triathlon season. Upon seeing Ian I was assessed on what I do for training, what I wanted to achieve and any problems I might already have, before a program and treatment was provided. This is often something  you don’t get in other clinics, especially when you’re young and don’t already have major problems – PIHC’s key is to address problems before they arise.

During my treatment I have been to PIHC regularly for soft tissue therapy, Huber and Key Module treatment. The Huber has been excellent for balancing my strength and co-ordination, vital for efficiency swimming and cycling. Prior to this I was finding that I was building a dependence on one side of the body which can result in injuries down the track, after using the Huber for about a month I could feel a balance in my strength between my left and right side. Before and after a competition I always get the Key Module Treatment with Lucy and the soft tissue therapy, to help with performance and recovery. I find that leading  to a race my legs are tired and need a boost, being time poor often a deep tissue massage isn’t possible, so the Key Module Treatment is a great alternative as it only takes 10minutes and you come out of it feeling better than if you had a 1hr massage.

I can thank PIHC for contributing to my season’s success in 2011 and also for helping me hit each training session and race feeling 100%. With their constant help, guidance and advice I have been able to focus on my competing without worrying about injury and fatigue.”
