Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is the fourth largest healthcare profession in the world. Physiotherapists are integral members of the multidisciplinary team that assesses and treats people with a variety of acute and chronic health concerns. They use physical means to restore or re-educate movement and function.

Physiotherapists are committed healthcare professionals who participate in life-long learning and continuing education, research and clinical studies, and who are active in the education of students, staff and the community.

What Is Physiotherapy & How Can It Help?
Physiotherapy is the assessment, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal dysfunction by use of physical means including manual therapy, manipulation, exercise, electrotherapy or simply verbal advice. The assessment involves a review of the full history of the presented condition, as well as a full medical history. A physical examination follows.

It promotes pain relief through a non-invasive hands-on approach, following bone, muscle, nerve, ligament and joint injuries.

It can help relieve your pain so that you may return to full functionality and do all the things you want to do. Whether your acute injury is caused by sports, accidents or a long-term chronic problem, such as postural back or neck pain, physiotherapy is here to help

What Can We Treat
? We can treat a great variety of problems including pain, inflammation and muscle spasm. Back and neck problems, such as sciatica, lumbago, neck pain, headaches and whiplash, respond particularly well to physiotherapy; as do sports injuries like hamstring strains, tennis elbow, shin splints, cartilage damage, ligament sprains, and meniscal tears. Orthopedic problems such as fractures, joint replacements and poor biomechanics can also be helped. In addition, if you have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis or have other joint problems and pain, we can provide advice, exercises (including hydrotherapy exercises) and treatments to reduce your pain. Physiotherapy can be used to treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions.
