Physiotherapy is frequently used to treat clients with pain, stiffness, muscle weakness, instability and reduced mobility.
What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy or physical therapy is the application of various healing treatments such as exercise, mobilisation, soft tissue manipulation and in some cases the use of electrotherapy to promote healing and well being. If muscles become stiff a physiotherapist can help to stimulate the blood flow in the hardened veins of the muscles and allow the deposits of lactic acid build up to drain away naturally. If mobility becomes restricted, resulting in pain, physiotherapy techniques can help alleviate the source of the pain and promote restored wellbeing. Carried out by primary healthcare professionals, who have extensive training and knowledge of the body’ anatomy, its function and its ability to move freely, allows individuals to develop a level of fitness, which should be free from pain or discomfort for a healthier lifestyle.
Physiotherapists can diagnose and treat individuals of all ages, when they present with medical problems relating to mobility or other health related conditions such as arthritis.
Why use physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function to as near normal as possible when someone is affected by injury, illness or by developmental or other disabilities. As a healthcare profession, physiotherapists cover a broad and varied range of work which involves working with people to promote their own health and well being.
We can treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions with programs tailored to suit the individual in combination with advice on self management for future well-being.
