What can Physiotherapy offer me?

  • Recovery / rehabilitation from injury (whether joint, muscular or nerve-related),
  • Reducing pain and stiffness
  • Increasing mobility and function
  • Educating about injuries/conditions
  • Preventing further injury by listening to needs and working to plan the most appropriate treatment for conditions, including setting goals and treatment outcomes

Physiotherapists are FIRST CONTACT PRACTITIONERS, which means a doctor’s referral is not necessary for a Physio appointment. Physiotherapists can work in collaboration with doctors and other allied health practitioners (EG: exercise physiologist) to plan, and manage the most appropriate treatment for specific conditions.

Physiotherapists use clinical reasoning and evidence-based practice to treat specific injuries / conditions. Prescribed treatment / rehabilitation plan will take into account lifestyles, exercise tolerance, activities, work, and general health.
