What Is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that assesses, diagnoses, treats, and works to prevent disease and disability through physical means. It aims to restore optimal physical function and performance by addressing imbalances or dysfunction that may cause pain and reduced mobility.
Physiotherapists are extensively trained in manual therapy, which means we are “hands on” with our patients. This may include massage and joint mobilisation and manipulation, as well as muscle stretching, which we achieve using a wide variety of techniques.
What To Expect?
Physiotherapists are specialised in the musculoskeletal system, and are often recommended by GP’s due to their expertise in reducing damage, stiffness and pain caused by various conditions. An initial consultation involves a thorough assessment and informed diagnosis which considers relevant symptoms and your medical history. Your treatment options are diverse and will be discussed with you before treatment commences. Physiotherapists can develop treatment and management plans that suit your needs and will most effectively address the specific diagnosis.
Physiotherapists use a range of “hand on techniques” including:
- Joint mobilisation
- Muscular and myofascial release
- Trigger point release
- Manual therapy
- Dry needling
- Exercise therapy
- Recommended active treatments such as rebalancing exercises, clinical Pilates, orthotics, taping, hydrotherapy and electrotherapy (for example ultrasound).
