Why Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that focuses on maximising your recovery from injury and pain using current medical science as its foundation. Its goal is to optimise the body’s own intrinsic healing processes using natural, evidence based methods. An extensive medical knowledge of the body’s physiology, anatomy, function and mechanics is the basis for accurate medical assessment, diagnosis and treatment of your problem. Once the source and cause of pain or dysfunction is clearly established, a variety of largely “hands on” treatment techniques can be used to relieve pain, restore joint movement, and ease protective muscle tension. “Sorting the cause” is key to this treatment approach, and skilled exercise prescription is used to stretch, strengthen and stabilise in a way relevant to how we actually function and move. The goal is not to just feel better, but to stay better long-term. Education also plays a primary role, to ensure that you understand what’s wrong, and what you can do to prevent further problems and stay pain free. More serious problems requiring specialist review and/or medical investigation or are identified accurately and early by a university trained professional with extensive sports medicine and general clinical experience.
