Profile

Julia McCulloch is a registered Physiotherpapist based in the heart of Green Point, Cape Town.

Julia has been a practicing physiotherapist for ten years, and for the last three years has been running a successful physiotherapy practice in Greenpoint, Cape Town.

Having completed numerous post-graduate physiotherapy, pilates and dry needling qualifications, Julia applies her experience and knowledge to ensure that each patient is given a comprehensive assessment, diagnosis and treatment. A hands-on treatment approach is used to get patients pain-free and back to full function as soon as possible.

Being an active outdoor sportswomen, Julia has a passion for exercise, pilates and healthy living which drives her day to day treatment of patients.

Physiotherapy is a scientific, holistic approach to assessing and treating pain, injuries, stiffness and imbalances of the muscles, joints and nerves. A physiotherapist is highly skilled and trained to choose from numerous treatment modalities including massage, trigger point therapy, joint mobilisation, dry needling, ultrasound, exercise and strapping to facilitate recovery. As an OMT trained physiotherapist Julia has a special interest in assessing and treating neuro-musculoskeletal (NMS), spinal and peripheral joint disorders using a clinically reasoned hands-on approach of manual therapy and rehabilitation.

What to expect:

During your first appointment a comprehensive assessment will be performed after which you will be given a diagnosis and then appropriate treatment. Treatment can include manual therapy or a ‘hands-on’ approach to mobilise joints and release tight muscles. Often this will be combined with one of the above modalities and an exercise programme to return you to full function as soon as possible. In certain cases you may need to be referred for x-rays by the physiotherapist or perhaps to see a specialist.
