PHYSIOTHERAPY

What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession composed of movement specialists concerned with the enhancement of quality of life through a combination of  prescribed exercise, hands-on techniques, and patient education.

What are the benefits of physiotherapy?

Physiotherapists physically assess patients in order to develop personalised treatment plans focused on improving the ability to move, reducing pain, restoring function, and in some cases preventing disability.

Who is physiotherapy suitable for?

Working across a broad spectrum of medical specialties, Physiotherapists work with people of all ages and physical abilities. Physiotherapy is practised in both inpatient and outpatient settings with practitioners holding expertise in the physical rehabilitation of neurological, cardiorespiratory and musculoskeletal issues

 Knee pain

 Hip and shoulder impingements

 Joint injuries

 Muscle strains and tears

 Pre and post-surgical management

 Spinal pain of the neck and low back

 Chronic pain

How does physiotherapy work?

Initial Physiotherapy consultations begin with a detailed conversation designed to narrow down common factors that can aggravate or ease your presenting complaint. Often, these important clues gathered from your sporting, working, and everyday life can help physiotherapists develop a provisional diagnosis from the start, ensuring a more precise and efficient physical assessment to follow. 

 

Physical assessments typically begin from a functional standpoint where the physiotherapist will observe how your body moves in a more global sense before delving into more specific tests of joint pathology, muscle strength, and range of motion. With this information Physiotherapists will provide you with a detailed understanding of your injury and outline the pathway to optimise your performance while working towards eliminating your musculoskeletal pain. 

 

Based on the information gathered, there is usually enough time for treatment in the form of either (or a combination of) soft tissue/joint mobilisation techniques and exercise, often providing immediate improvements to previously aggravating positions or movements
