What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapists help restore movement and function for people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice.
The profession helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to be able to do what they love and help them remain independent for as long as possible.
Physiotherapy appointments can help with a wide range of injuries and conditions to help get patients back on the road to recovery. The most common injuries to treat are musculoskeletal conditions including back pain, hip pain and knee pain.
What to expect with a Phsyio
- Your physiotherapist will take you through a thorough assessment and case history going through your current and previous medical history.
- This allows us to fully understand your injury and help us get to the root cause of the injury.
- We don’t just want to understand your injury, we want to understand you and where you want to get back to.
- This makes sure that the treatment and rehabilitation chosen for your recovery is the best, safest and most appropriate for you.
- You will then be asked to complete some simple movements and tests. We MAKE SENSE of your movement habits using our techniques to quickly find the root cause of your symptoms
- Your physiotherapist will provide you with a diagnosis and a simplified explanation of your injury to ensure your understanding (we find this a key component of the consultation as it addresses why you are injured and how you are going to get better.)
- After listening carefully to what matters most to you, we will make a journey to recovery with milestones showing what you need to do next and how to get back to what you love doing. You decide what you want and need to be able to do and we will design this for you.
- Advice regarding lifestyle changes may also be given.
- Depending on the injury and treatment / rehabilitation plan being prescribed follow-ups will be required and advised to achieve your goals to recover, improve and maintain your fitness and well-being. Your treatment will include a combination of manual therapy such as massage and joint mobilisations, education, advice and exercise therapy in the form of a progressive loading program that gradually exposes the body to increase tolerance to daily loads.
