Physiotherapists are health professionals who use evidence based practices and work in partnership with their patients to help them get better and stay well.
We assess, diagnose, treat and prevent a wide range of health conditions and movement disorders.
We use a variety of techniques to help encourage healing, reduce stiffness and pain, increase mobility and improve quality of life.
These may include:
deep soft tissue massage
trigger point release
anatomical dry needling (using acupuncture needles)
muscle energy techniques
We also provide education, retraining, and exercises as required by each individual to ensure self ownership in recovery.
We may teach you:
alternative muscle patterns and postural adjustments
strength and endurance exercises
breathing and relaxation techniques
strategies for pain management
nutrition for optimal healing and health
If you're not sure if your problem can be helped by physiotherapy, just ask us! If it is beyond our scope of expertise then we can refer you to the appropriate health care professional.
