General Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a governed and protected professional title.  Physiotherapy aids in restoring movement and function when someone is affected by injury, degeneration, illness, or disability. 

It takes a holistic approach that involves the patient directly in their own care.

Physiotherapists consider the body as a whole, rather than just focusing on the individual aspects of an injury or illness.

Physiotherapists help people by utilising a few key aspects of therapy including:

Physiotherapy Page Exercise Therapy

Ranging from basic movement reintroduction to the highest sporting performance recovery.

Physiotherapy Page Manual Therapy Techniques

Specific manipulations, joint, soft tissue, or nerve mobilisations 

Taping Techniques

Such as Taping techniques, ultrasound, extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), TENs or Acupuncture.
