What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession dedicated to the treatment and management of muscle, joint and nerve disorders, aimed at restoration of normal function that may have been compromised through injury, ageing, disease or environmental factors. Physiotherapists are highly trained in assessment, management and treatment of sports injuries, occupational injuries (work related), motor vehicle injuries and general physical injuries. Physiotherapists also play a critical role in rehabilitation following more serious injuries, especially after surgery.

Your initial consultation will incorporate a thorough assessment of your condition. Our physiotherapist will then discuss treatment options with you, which will often include a tailored exercise and rehabilitation program to assist you with your recovery.

Why Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapists employ a variety of treatment techniques targeted at the muscles, joints and nerves to relieve pain, restore range of movement, improve muscle strength and endurance and accelerate the body’s natural healing process to have you feeling better, faster. By determining the underlying biomechanical cause of a condition and correcting these factors, the physiotherapist is also able to help you prevent the recurrence of injury.
