Physiotherapy aims to help to restore movement and function in cases of illness, injury and disability.

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapists take a holistic approach, looking at the body as a whole rather than focusing on the individual factors of an injury or illness.

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy is a specialised area of Physiotherapy treating injuries and conditions which affect the muscles, joints, and soft tissues. Common injuries that we see in the clinics include:

A range of physio services

Our physiotherapists use a range of ‘hands on’ treatment techniques, which may include:

  • Manual Therapy
  • Electrotherapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Massage
  • Sports and functional fascial taping
  • Progressive core stability and
  • Functional exercise rehabilitation

The most appropriate treatments will be selected upon the clinical judgement and the experience of the Physiotherapist, depending upon the findings from the initial assessment.

Treatments aim to:

  • Optimise healing
  • Speed the recovery process
  • Increase strength
  • Restore normal movement
  • Decrease pain
  • Increase Independence
  • Decrease swelling and inflammation

At your first appointment, your physiotherapist will go through a thorough history, related to your symptoms.

This will be followed by a musculoskeletal physiotherapy assessment, looking at movement patterns, and muscle function, so that your physiotherapist can identify areas of weakness, and come up with an appropriate rehabilitation plan, to optimise healing and speed up the recovery process.
