Physiotherapy uses a variety of techniques to help your body move and function at its full potential. In order to prevent a range of problems and diseases, and to improve quality of life, physiotherapists encourage and assist people of all ages to participate in safe physical activity.
We work in partnership with our patients to educate them on how to manage their own health. We assist people with movement disorders which may have been present from birth, acquired through accident or injury, or are the result or ageing or life changing events.
Physiotherapy can help repair damage by speeding up the healing process, reduce pain and stiffness, and increase mobility.
A physiotherapist can also help you prevent further injury listening to your needs and working with you to plan the most appropriate treatment for your condition, including setting goals and treatment outcomes. Physiotherapists are experts in preventing, managing and treating many chronic diseases.
Physiotherapy is a key element of primary health care, and physiotherapists play an important role in health promotion, screening, triage, assessment and treatment for patients.
However physiotherapists, doctors and other health professionals will often work as part of a team to plan and manage treatment for a specific condition.
