Physiotherapy – How it Works?
Physiotherapy involves using a variety of strategies to help you function at your optimal potential. Physiotherapists work in partnership with individuals of all ages to break down barriers impeding overall function. Physiotherapy can help individuals living with congenital or chronic diseases or other debilitating conditions and can assist those recovering from: surgery; illness; neurological conditions; injury; industrial or motor vehicle accidents; or age related conditions. We use conservative management to restore and maximize movement symptom relief and function.
Fundamental to a physiotherapists approach is an appreciation of your role in your own care. Physiotherapists work with you to integrate your care into your lifestyle. They are skilled in providing treatment, preventative advice, rehabilitation and care for people with short or long-term impairments and will develop a full treatment plan to suit your unique needs and to lead you to self management.
Physiotherapists are university-educated, regulated health professionals that play an important role within your health care team.
