Physiotherapy is treatment to restore, maintain, and make the most of a patient’s mobility, function, and well-being. Physiotherapy helps through physical rehabilitation, injury prevention, and health and fitness. Physiotherapists get you involved in your own recovery. Physiotherapists study the science of movement. They learn how to pinpoint an injury’s root causes.
Think about getting physiotherapy if you have an injury, or chronic pain that affects how you function everyday. A doctor may refer you to physiotherapy after surgery such as a hip replacement, or an event such as a heart attack or stroke.

Physiotherapists treat a variety of conditions affecting the body
Your First Visit
The initial consultation involves an assessment before beginning treatment. Your physiotherapist will ask you questions about the history and nature of your injury or pain before conducting simple physical tests to assist in making a diagnosis of your problem. Once a diagnosis is made, your physiotherapist will discuss management options with you before beginning the actual treatment process.
Our clinic has adopted a team approach to the treatment of our clients. The practitioners within our team have different strengths and specialities (eg mobilization, exercise prescription, acupuncture, ultrasound, IFC and TENS to just name a few) and will discuss the best treatment option for you during your consultation.
Re-appointing for Subsequent visits
Regardless of the condition, we aim to get you better as quickly as possible. In most cases this will involve several visits in a short space of time tapering to less frequent visits as your condition improves.
