Physiotherapists use mainly physical means such as exercise, manipulation, mobilisation, massage and electrical modalities to help patients achieve their full potential.

While traditionally, physiotherapy was regarded as rehabilitative and mainly hospital-based, the profession has expanded greatly into other health care areas. We have invaluable expertise to offer in educational and preventative roles in the community, the workplace and in private practice.

Physiotherapy is useful in the early stages of a joint or soft tissue (muscle or ligament) injury such as those seen in many common sports injuries. Physiotherapy can relieve pain, enhance movement and aid the healing process. In the mid stages of an injury,

Physiotherapy optimises function and allows more activity without re-injury. In the later phase of an injury, Physiotherapy is used to retrain overall balance, regain full function and improve physical fitness.

Using knowledge from our extensive scientific background of human anatomy and physiology, Physiotherapists can help to:

  • Assess, diagnose and treat conditions and illnesses that affect people in all ages and social groups.
  • Assist a patient to prevent injury in the workplace or on the sports field
  • Promote healthier lifestyles for all
