How can physiotherapy help?
Physiotherapists help and treat people of all ages with physical problems caused by illness, accident or ageing. Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession which sees human movement as central to the health and well-being of individuals.
Physiotherapists identify and maximise movement potential through health promotion, preventive healthcare, treatment and rehabilitation.
The core skills used by physiotherapists include manual therapy, therapeutic exercise and the application of electro-physical modalities.
Physiotherapists also have an appreciation of psychological, cultural and social factors which influence their clients.
For example, if you sprain your ankle, a physiotherapist can ensure you walk safely, reduce your swelling and help improve your movement, strength and balance for speedy return to activities (sport etc).
