What is Physiotherapy?


Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that takes a holistic approach to improving physical well-being. It focuses on movement science to help individuals restore, maintain, and optimize their physical strength, function, and overall health. This profession spans various areas, including rehabilitation, injury prevention, and health promotion. Patient engagement through education and participation in their treatment is fundamental.

Physiotherapists are highly trained professionals who work closely with patients to enhance their quality of life. They aid in injury recovery, pain reduction, mobility improvement, and injury prevention. Physiotherapists treat a wide range of conditions, including back and neck pain, joint injuries, post-fracture rehabilitation, arthritis management, neurological conditions, and more. They use techniques such as exercise programs, joint manipulation, soft tissue mobilization, acupuncture, and hydrotherapy.

During a physiotherapy appointment, an initial assessment is conducted to understand the patient’s condition, lifestyle, and needs. This is followed by an objective evaluation and diagnosis. Treatment may involve manual therapy, exercise prescription, electrotherapy, and other modalities. Follow-up appointments focus on progress and adjustments to the treatment plan.

Physiotherapists often collaborate with other healthcare professionals, although a doctor’s referral is not always required to see a physiotherapist. It’s important to note that specific details about sessions, fees, and practitioners can be obtained through our receptionist.
