Physiotherapy extends from health promotion to injury prevention, acute care, rehabilitation, maintenance of functional mobility, chronic disease management, patient and carer education and occupational health.
The physiotherapist uses non-pharmaceutical methods to restore, improve and enhance your physical condition to help the patient to maintain optimal function and prevent disability that may arise from disease, trauma or injury.
Physiotherapists are qualified health professionals who works in partnership with their patients to help them improve their quality of life and make the necessary lifestyle changes.
Physiotherapists also work closely with the patients GP’s and other health and alternative health care clinicians to plan and manage treatment.
Using advanced techniques and evidence-based care, physiotherapists assess, diagnose, treat and prevent a wide range of health conditions and movement disorders.
Physiotherapy is not just about the treatment of symptoms, we are committed to interventions that importantly identify the cause of your symptoms. Once the cause is identified we can then facilitate an appropriate treatment / rehabilitation program, which may include a combination of hands on treatment such as mobilisation / manipulation, soft tissue mobilisation, specific rehabilitation and importantly a home care and/ or exercise program and lifestyle change program.
