Physiotherapy is a health care profession that is bound by codes of conduct, so physiotherapists use evidence-based techniques to treat you. Basically we treat you with what works!
Physiotherapists treat an array of conditions from musculoskeletal, to respiratory, to neurological. We work with all age groups from babies to the elderly.
Physiotherapists are trained in movement analysis. We assess the whole body to discover the cause of your pain or dysfunction and treat the root cause. We use a variety of techniques to relieve your pain, such as mobilisations to ‘free up’ the joints, soft tissue techniques to ease tension and inflammation. This improves the function in the muscles, joints and tendons, which is needed for repair and healthy tissue. We also use dry needling and kinesiology taping. We assess and analyse the source of the problem. We will select specific exercises to correct the cause. The exercises will work your muscular system and also your neuromuscular system, so you’re retraining your brain and muscles! The exercises are based around strengthening and improving flexibility and ensuring that the right muscles are doing what they should be doing. Pilates based exercises can be a key component to rehabilitation.
Physiotherapy can also help with long term conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis, Parkinson’s, vestibular issues (balance problems) and work station related issues; such as repetitive strain injury (RSI).
