Physiotherapy provides a holistic, hands-on approach that addresses a person’s individual needs across a broad spectrum of neurological, musculoskeletal conditions, rehabilitation and chronic health conditions.
Physiotherapists will help you recover from injury, reduce pain and stiffness, increase mobility and prevent further injury and can tailor a treatment specific to your condition. You don’t need a doctor’s referral to see a Physiotherapist, however we will often work as part of a multi-Disciplinary team to plan and manage treatment for a specific condition.
Some of the specialised areas of Physiotherapy are disability, mental health, neurological, aquatic (hydrotherapy), sports physiotherapy, cancer, lymphoedema, cardiorespiratory (heart and lungs), musculoskeletal, orthopaedic, acute and chronic pain.
A Physiotherapist can use an extensive range of treatment methods, for example:
- exercise programs to improve mobility and strengthen muscles
- joint manipulation and mobilisation to reduce pain and stiffness
- muscle re-education to improve control
- airway clearance techniques and breathing exercises
- soft tissue mobilisation (massage)
- acupuncture and dry needling
- assistance with use of aids, splints, crutches, walking sticks and wheelchairs to help you move around.
