PHYSIOTHERAPY

Physiotherapy is a health care profession providing services to develop, maintain and restore maximum movement and functional ability throughout a person’s lifespan. It includes the provision of services where movement and function are threatened by injury, disease or the process of aging.

Our physiotherapists have a detailed understanding of how the body works, and the impact environmental and lifestyle factors can have on your physical condition. A physiotherapist will work with you and your healthcare team to provide a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs, and one that focuses on achieving your highest level of physical well-being.

Also known as physical therapists, physiotherapists have a post graduate university degree and are specialists in assessing and improving movement and function, while relieving pain. They promote good health by working with patients to maximize their abilities while adopting a healthy lifestyle.

A physiotherapist helps individuals return to their pre-injury activities. The physiotherapist accomplishes this through successfully restoring and increasing range of motion in joints; by treating spinal problems and the treatment of various other orthopaedic and neurological conditions.

Physiotherapy Treatments Include: injury specific exercise programs; manipulation and mobilization (manual therapy); electrotherapy (e.g. therapeutic ultrasound); acupuncture; hydrotherapy - exercise in water and soft tissue techniques.
