What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy uses physical techniques to improve movement, reduce pain and stiffness, speed up the healing process and increase the quality of life. They can diagnose and manage a broad range of conditions with the bones, muscles, cardiovascular system, nerves and other parts and systems of the body. They can help people to manage chronic diseases, provide lifestyle advice, prescribe exercises and aids to help people manage better, and give advice.
When should you see a Physiotherapist?
As you don’t need a Dr’s referral, you can come and see a Physiotherapist at any time! (Just make sure to book first)
It’s recommended you come to see a Physiotherapist to:
- Prevent injuries
- Work on posture
- Alleviate chronic pains & disease
- Stretching & flexibility
- Heal from surgical procedures (Hip & knee replacements to name a few)
- Management of a physical limitation
They are experts at healing injuries, but there is a lot more that they can offer.
