WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Physiotherapy can be defined as a treatment method that focuses on the science of movement and helps people to restore, maintain and maximize their physical strength, function, motion and overall well-being by addressing the underlying physical issues. Physiotherapy is a holistic approach to healthcare lead by practitioners dedicated to working with people to maximize their ability to move and function throughout their life.
They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease. Physiotherapy is the treatment of injury, disease and disorders through physical methods such as exercise, massage, manipulation and other treatments over medication and surgery.
As physiotherapists, we treat a wide array of conditions including:
Spinal pain and injuries (e.g. disc prolapse)
Sports injuries (e.g. ligament tears)
Fractures (e.g. broken arm)
Musculoskeletal problems (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome)
Post-surgical rehabilitation (e.g. following a knee replacement)
Biomechanical problems (e.g. “flat feet”)
Arthritic conditions (e.g. osteoarthritis)
Neurological disorders and diseases (e.g. stroke)
Cardiothoracic conditions (e.g. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorders)
Paediatric conditions (e.g. cerebral palsy)
