What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a treatment that restores, maintains and improves a patient’s overall mobility, physical function and well-being. A trained physiotherapist can help you achieve this by providing corrective exercises, manual therapy and education on health and fitness.
When should I see a physiotherapist?
You should see a physiotherapist if you have an injury or condition that limits your physical daily function. A physiotherapist can provide a treatment plan to both prevent and rehabilitate injuries. Treatments can range from exercises, manual therapy and soft tissue release techniques. A physiotherapist can help treat problems caused by an injury or condition. Here are some examples below:
Muscle and joint pain caused from a sports injury such as a sprained ankle or rotator cuff tendinopathy
Problems in the bones, joints, muscles and ligaments due to Arthritis
Neck and back pain due to poor posture
