What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a science-based methodology that is constantly evolving as new research discovers better ways to treat your body. Your physiotherapist will use their expert knowledge of the human body and highly specialised skills to help restore your aching, stiff and dysfunctional muscles and joints back to health. Physiotherapists promote good health by encouraging their clients or patients to improve and increase control over their own lives through additional exercise prescription.

Physiotherapy focuses on treating the structural components of the body, such as muscles, joints and ligaments, looking at relative strength/ weakness, tightness and laxity/length. They also look at the motor control of the movements which is controlled by the nervous system and help to re-educate normal movement patterns.

A physiotherapist uses natural physical approaches and manual techniques to promote, maintain and restore your body to health and well-being so that you can perform and enjoy your chosen sport, work or everyday activities.
