What Is Physiotherapy

 

Physiotherapy is a primary care, autonomous, client-focused and drug-free health profession dedicated to:

 

  • Improving and maintaining functional independence and physical performance,
  • Preventing and managing pain, physical impairments, disabilities and limits to participation; and
  • Promoting fitness, health and wellness.

What will the Physiotherapist do?

 

The Physiotherapist will conduct a thorough assessment including the history of your problem and a detailed examination.

 

The assessment may include tests of muscle flexibility, strength, joint movement and other special tests. Physiotherapists can recommend the best way to treat problems with your muscles, bones and joints, circulatory, respiratory or nervous system. Physiotherapists can also advise you on ways to prevent potential health problems from occurring before they arise.
