What is Physiotherapy?
Passionate individuals that aim to provide patients with holistic care and intervention. Physiotherapists are first line practitioners able to assess, diagnose, treat and refer patients. We aim to decrease pain, restore function and prevent injuries or reoccurrence thereof with hands-on interventions.
Anti-inflammatory treatment, thermal therapy, electrotherapy, manual therapy techniques and rehabilitative exercises, to name a few, are what physiotherapists specialise in to provide patients with acute, sub acute and chronic condition care.
Most Popular Areas of Pain
Neurological rehabilitation, Sports injuries and Post operative rehabilitation.
Musculoskeletal injuries can have immediate and serious consequences for function. A set of interventions are required when an individual experiences or is likely to experience limitations in daily functioning due to aging or a health condition, such as chronic diseases or disorders, injuries or traumas. "Rehabilitation allows people of all ages to continue or return to their daily lives, fulfill meaningful life roles, and maximize their well-being."
