Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation
Physiotherapists are integral members of the multidisciplinary team that assesses and treats people with a variety of acute and chronic health concerns. Physiotherapy is the assessment, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal dysfunction by use of physical means including manual therapy, manipulation, exercise, and electrotherapy. The assessment involves a review of the full history of the presented condition, as well as a full medical history. A physical examination follows. It promotes pain relief through a non-invasive hands-on approach, following bone, muscle, nerve, ligament and joint injuries. It can help relieve your pain so that you may return to full functionality and do all the things you want to do.
The department deals with a great variety of problems including pain, inflammation and muscle spasm. Back and neck problems, such as sciatica, lumbago, neck pain, headaches and whiplash, respond particularly well to physiotherapy; as do sports injuries like hamstring strains, tennis elbow, shin splints, cartilage damage, ligament sprains, and meniscal tears. Orthopedic problems such as fractures, joint replacements and poor biomechanics can also be helped. In addition, if you have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis or have other joint problems and pain, we can provide advice, exercises and treatments to reduce your pain. Physiotherapy can be used to treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions. However, you do not need to be an athletic person to benefit from physiotherapy, you can benefit no matter what caused your pain or injury.
