Physiotherapy is a profession aimed at the assessment, maintenance, and restoration of the physical function and performance of the body. Without our bodies performing at an optimal biomechanical level you will inevitably run into problems and develop imbalances or dysfunctions (not moving properly) that lead to pain/injury and reduced performance.
Physiotherapy is usually used in isolation as the one therapy of choice such as in injury management; however it can be used as adjunct to other health care such as recovery from surgery or in conjunction with medical advice or medication. In the cases where it is used in combination with other medical/allied health therapies it will help provide a longer lasting relief or speedier recovery from injury.
Physiotherapists look at the factors which contribute to the problem or presenting complaint of the patient. By addressing poor posture, improper techniques, muscle imbalances, poor work practices, or other bad habits we can address these issues and hence treat the patient as a whole person rather than a set of symptoms.. This approach reduces the likelihood of the same thing happening again in the future and also reduces any worsening of the condition or any more degeneration/dysfunction of the patient’s condition.
Conditions We Treat
We use a wide range of assessment and treatment techniques to determine what the cause of the problem is, where the painful structure that is causing the symptom lies, and therefore the physiotherapist is able to determine what the best technique to use will be to restore the patient to the best level of function.
Physio treatment will therefore vary depending on what the presenting physio condition is, but commonly patients can expect to receive treatment techniques from the following list:
Joint mobilisation therapy
Spinal mobilisation therapy
Flexibility and Core stability training
Acupuncture and dry needling
Muscle energy techniques
Balance training and re-education
Gait (walking/running) retraining
Strength and rehabilitation program and training
Taping (including Kinesiology tape)
An accurate assessment will determine what the most appropriate course of treatment will suit you as an individual to get the best recovery possible so that you can get back to doing what you enjoy most.
