Physiotherapist help improve and maintain quality of life. They help you recover from injury, reduce pain and stiffness, increase mobility and prevent further injury.
Physiotherapists use their knowledge with movement and function to help patients overcome movement disorders which can present at any stage of life: From birth, through injuries or accidents, or from ageing, illness, or life changing events.
A physiotherapist will help prevent further injury or minimise the effects of your condition by creating a management plan based around your needs, goals, and desired outcomes. They may use a combination of manual therapy, exercise therapy, education and electrotherapy to mange your condition.
A physiotherapist can be a first contact practitioner, so a doctor’s referral is not required to visit one. Physiotherapist can and will work in conjunction with GP’s, specialists, and other health practitioners as part of a team to help manage and guide treatment for specific conditions.
